StorErotica Magazine Named ANME Show Official Media Sponsor

CLEARWATER, Fla. — For the second year, StorErotica Magazine has partnered with the producers of the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo (ANME) to be the official media sponsor of the business-to-business tradeshow set for July 10-12 in Burbank, Calif.

Held at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport, the annual ANME Show will once again feature the top brands in the adult toy and novelty industry. In addition to providing press coverage both before and after the show, StorErotica will be conducting an educational seminar as well as presenting the StorErotica Awards during one of ANME’s nightly parties.

"ANME is the tradeshow where attendees can be certain that business will get done without all the distractions of consumers and unqualified buyers," StorErotica Magazine. Editor Kristofer Kay said. "We are pleased to be part of the leading adult novelty convention again this year, and look forward to presenting a fun and educational seminar as well as our fifth annual StorErotica Awards."

Last year, StorErotica hosted two panel sessions during ANME that covered store promotions and advertising and featured industry leaders Greg Alves (Evolved Novelties and Zero Tolerance), Keith Caggiano (The Screaming O), Susan Colvin (California Exotic Novelties), Desiree Duffie (Topco Sales) and Nick Orlandino (Pipedream Products). Sitting alongside them were retail executives Mark Franks (Castle Megastore), Shawna Butt (Peekay) and Shelly Sandau (Lion’s Den).

This marks the first time that the StorErotica Awards will be presented at ANME with such categories as Novelty Company of the Year, Distributor of the Year, Retailer of the Year (both independent and chain) and Hot Product of the Year being bestowed.

According to the company, it has plans already underway to add new award categories to this year’s special ceremony.

"Much like our July show in 2010, StorErotica will be an integral part of the ANME by presenting their annual awards and hosting an informative seminar and discussion that attendees do not want to miss," said Nick Orlandino, managing director of the ANME Founders and CEO of Pipedream Products. "We are excited to have StorErotica Magazine as the official media sponsor of the ANME Founders show again this year!"
