CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Pipedream has returned from the eroFame trade show in Germany, where the manufacturer took home four more industry accolades, including awards for Best U.S. Manufacturer and Best Selling Brand of the Year for the Fetish Fantasy Limited Edition Series.
Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino was also honored with a lifetime achievement award for his lasting contributions to the adult industry, and named Business Man of the Year for the third consecutive year.
"It's amazing for me to watch our continued growth and success on a global level. As the awards continue to pile up, each one we receive renews my commitment to building Pipedream into the largest brand in the world," said CEO Nick Orlandino. "I want to thank my whole team for their hard work and dedication, and I would like to personally thank EAN and SIGN magazine for these honors. Going into my 30th year in the industry, it's extra special to be recognized for my life's work."
The three-day trade convention, which is Europe's largest international B2B trade show, took place from Oct. 9-11 at Expo City Hannover, Germany.
With more than 185 exhibitors present, Pipedream says its booth stole the spotlight and reached max capacity each day. Well-stocked with freshly baked pretzels and ice-cold German beer on tap, the booth featured wall-to-wall graphics and more than 500 products on display.
Pipedream also held a private dinner party at an upscale restaurant in downtown Hannover to celebrate the company's 40th year anniversary.
The invitation-only gala drew a mix of Pipedream's foreign and domestic customers, who all came together under one roof to celebrate 40 years of Pipedream's success.
"Our dinner was a personal thank you to all of our customers around the globe for helping make Pipedream the No. 1 brand in the world. It was amazing to see all the major players in our industry partying together — it was a night I'll never forget,” said Orlandino.
The show featured the European debuts of Pipedream's three newest lines: Ceramix Pleasure Pottery, Pure Aluminium, and the Anal Fantasy Collection, as well as the release of Pipedream's Fetish Fantasy Series Big Box Set catalog collection.
