LOS ANGELES — The Sportsheets International team has returned to Southern California from the eroFame trade show, which was held at the Hannover Fairgrounds in Hannover, Germany from Oct. 5-7.
While in Hannover, Sportsheets won EAN's 2016 Erotixxx Award for Best U.S. Manufacturer. The 2016 EAN Erotixxx Awards were held in Hannover during eroFame.
“We are so happy to be recognized in Europe for all the hard work we do in the States,” said Julie Stewart, president of Sportsheets International. “Our team has worked tirelessly to bring Midnight to the market earlier than expected while sales have surpassed our expectations. The now-world-famous Midnight collection took center stage as European retailers and buyers walked the show.
Sportsheets’ was represented at eroFame this year by Julie Stewart and Sales Specialist Sylvia Lopez.
Together, Sportsheets said, they “took an influx of orders for Midnight, Sportsheets Premium, all the Sportsheets brands and sent record sales orders back home to Huntington Beach, Calif. All of the Sportsheets BDSM and positioning tools were a phenomenal success. Each brand was showcased in pre-designed planograms that make it fast and easy for retailers around the world to communicate the ‘keeping couples connected’ messages through the language of love and fantasy.”
“We’ve seen such success with our brands in Europe just as we have in the U.S. thanks to recent cultural shifts in both markets,” Stewart said. “It’s an honor to be recognized by EAN and the international industry for our hard work. Our products are the perfect fantasy and BDSM items for both the beginner and more experienced consumers. All of us at Sportsheets are very appreciative of this honor and thank everyone here for their hard work and dedication to our industry. We would also like to thank Huda Lutz and her associates with putting on such a fantastic trade show and venue for us to meet.”
