CHINO, Calif. — California Exotic Novelties has taken home the Manufacturer of the Year Award from Calvista Australia at the annual Adultex Show on April 27.

The awards were presented at the CalExotics Carnival Event as part of the expo attended by Australian and New Zealand’s adult retailers, as well as representatives from 50 different global pleasure product manufacturers and adult studios.

“We’re honored to receive this tremendous award from our friends at Calvista. Adultex once again proved to be an amazing trade show and the Carnival Event was incredibly fun. Everyone I talked to said they had a blast,” CalExotics CEO and President Susan Colvin said.

The Adultex Manufacturer of the Year Award identifies excellence across overall parameters including company image, product catalog, quality of manufacturing, packaging, promotion, supply, sales and customer satisfaction.

“Susan Colvin and California Exotic Novelties epitomize what this award is all about. Quality and excellence are the merits that made them the global leader in adult novelties,” Michael Basset, CEO of Calvista Australia said. “Additionally, as the sponsor of the Carnival Event, the CalExotics team created a spectacular that was unmatched in previous years. Everyone raved about the party.”

CalExotics said the Carnival Event was inspired by its “Something for Everyone” marketing campaign. It featured circus performers, Mardi Gras beads, a mechanical bull, a photo booth, ping pong, ring toss, and other carnival-style games.

All of the company’s latest products were displayed at the show, along with CalExotic sister company JOPEN’s EGO, KEY, Intensity and ENVY line. Other brands included Posh, Body & Soul, First Time, Gyration Sensations, Adonis, Booty Call, Kisses, Lover Rider and more.

Colvin also hosted a special presentation on the first day of the show, which gave attendees an insider’s look at the CalExotics team and the products, sales tools, and marketing programs the company has to offer.
