Nick Orlandino Wins Adultex Lifetime Achievement Award
CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Pipedream returned from the 2014 Adultex Adult Trade Exhibition with two Adultex Awards, scoring the Best New Product Range award for the Ceramix Pleasure Pottery line and a lifetime achievement award for CEO Nick Orlandino.
According to the company, Adultex, which is dubbed the Southern Hemisphere's largest gathering of adult industry manufacturers and retailers, has been imperative to Pipedream's rapid Australian growth.
"Pipedream brands continue to dominate the Australian market, owning at least half of all retail store space and online offerings," Pipedream Vice President Ruben Deitz said. "Our new brands were well received by all, and we're honored to have our Ceramix collection recognized as the Best New Product Range."
Pipedream says its Adultex booth bustled with customer activity throughout the three-day long event, and left with more orders than ever before. CEO Nick Orlandino was presented with an Adultex Services to the Industry Award.
"I want to thank Michael Bassett and his entire crew for putting together another great show," Orlandino said. "I'm honored to receive this esteemed lifetime achievement award, and I'm proud of how we continue to expand our brand presence throughout Australia and New Zealand, making Pipedream the number one brand down under."
Pipedream Visual Merchandiser Briana Honz said, "At the end of the day, the most important part of business is to keep products flying off of shelves. Proven sales are just as important as innovation, and that's why brand loyalty to Pipedream in Australia is so strong. Pipedream sales are skyrocketing in Australia and the Cal Vista team is a big part of our success."
