Hustler Takes Honors at XBIZ Awards

LOS ANGELES — Hustler has announced three big wins at the XBIZ Awards Show that brought the industry together on Feb. 9 at the Hollywood Palladium.

Theresa Flynt was honored with the Executive Leadership Award in Retail for her stewardship of the Hustler Hollywood stores while Hustler Video’s "This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D" was awarded both Best Art Direction and Best Marketing Campaign of the Year. The wild sendoff was directed by Axel Braun, the 2010 XBIZ Director of the Year.

“We’re always happy to be recognized by our peers for the work we do,” said Michael H. Klein, president of Hustler. “Theresa has done an amazing job of making Hustler Hollywood a thriving retail chain and we are tremendously proud of the hard work that went into all facets of the making and marketing of 'This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D.'”

Hustler founder Larry Flynt spoke on Feb. 10 to a standing-room-only crowd at the inaugural XBIZ Retail Expo & Conference about the current state of the industry, offering insight about how he sees the future unfolding.
