CLEARWATER, Fla. — StorErotica Magazine has announced that pre-nominations are now open for the 10th Annual StorErotica Awards, to be held on Mon., Jul. 18 during the ANME Show in Burbank, Calif. The StorErotica Awards honor the adult retail community, including professionals specializing in health and sexuality products at the storefront, distribution, and manufacturing levels.
"From our first StorErotica Awards Show ten years ago at one of the largest adult nightclubs in the country — Sapphire in Las Vegas — to our new home at the ANME Founders Show, it's always been our pleasure to honor the pleasure products industry," said Kristofer Kay, public relations manager for StorErotica. "We're very grateful to ANME Director Valerie Jones, her team and, of course, the founders, for giving StorErotica such a grand stage to present our awards and to honor the best that our industry has to offer."
The 20 categories honored for the 2016 StorErotica Awards include new categories such as Brand Ambassador of the Year, New Product of the Year: International, Luxury Line of the Year, LGBT Company of the Year, Adult Game/Gag Gift of the Year, BDSM Product of the Year and Retailer Favorite of the Year.
"Each year, we joke about being the fastest awards show in the industry," Kay said. "That's been our blessing and our curse, really. But being that this is our tenth year, we felt like expanding the ceremony to emulate the dynamic growth of our industry. The world of erotic retail is constantly evolving to adapt to new clientele, and our awards will always strive to match this evolution. StorErotica is honored to distinguish those professionals and brands which contribute to the overall vitality of the adult retail community."
Professionals from throughout the industry are invited to visit StorEroticaAwards.com and enter their recommendations before the Jun. 1 deadline. Winners will be announced during the summertime ANME Founders Show, to be held Jul. 17-19 at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport in Burbank.
