2019 StorErotica Award Winners Announced

2019 StorErotica Award Winners Announced

BURBANK, Calif. — Hosted by sexologist Dr. Jill McDevitt, the 13th annual StorErotica Awards took place last Tuesday at the Burbank Marriott Hotel, honoring 23 award-winners.

“As we’ve come to expect, the industry came out in force for this year’s StorErotica Awards,” said Kris Kay, StorErotica’s marketing and PR director. “With her natural ability to capture the room’s attention, Dr. Jill presented a fun and educational evening as we recognized the best in erotic retail.” 

The most prestigious honor of the evening was awarded to Williams Trading founder Bob Pyne Sr., who was inducted into the StorErotica Hall of Fame.

“Mr. Pyne basically wrote the owner’s manual of how to be a successful distributor in this industry,” said Kay. “His influence can be felt to this day as it carried through the lineage that makes up Williams Trading Company. We’re honored to have recognized him with this special award.” 

This year, winners across the brick-and-mortar storefront, distributing, and manufacturing markets were honored in categories which included Pleasure Product Company of the Year, Distributor of the Year, New Product of the Year, Retailer of the Year, and the “Consumer Choice Award,” presented by StorErotica’s editorial partner, Kinkly.com.

“As always, the success of the StorErotica Awards could not be made possible without the continued support of ANME, the Founders, and of course, the incredible Valerie Jones and her staff who make each show so special,” said Kay.
