Pipedream Rocks ANME with Successful Debuts and 2 StorErotica Awards!

2014StorEAwardsAfter the successful debut of three new collections, Pipedream’s ANME celebrations continued Sunday night as they rocked the 8th annual StorErotica Awards. The manufacturer was the only company to score two awards, bringing home the Special Focus Award: Bachelorette Products (Bachelorette Party Favors) and Fetish Company of the Year (Fetish Fantasy Series).

“I want to thank Kris, Lacy, and the entire StorErotica team for the awards,” said Pipedream Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “Our Fetish Fantasy Series has raised the bar for beginners bondage and continues to be the #1 best-selling fetish brand in the world. We’ve worked hard to make our brands stand out and having that hard work recognized makes it all worthwhile.”

ANME marked the debut of this summer’s most anticipated collections including the comprehensive Fantasy X-Tensions line, Bonnie Rotten signature superstar series, and 25 additions to the best-selling Fetish Fantasy Limited Edition. With appearances by the rotten starlet herself alongside an impressive grey movie theater display featuring brand videos, popcorn, and even the final World Cup game, the Pipedream booth was the place to be and continuously swarming with activity.

“Our entire staff was constantly busy writing orders, selling entire walls at a time,” said Senior VP of Global Sales Rich Easton. “We received only the best positive feedback, and customers really appreciated that we continue to offer unique products that are easy for them to sell.”

“Year after year, our customers are most impressed by how Pipedream continues to introduce new brands and innovative products,” said Vice President of Product Development Rob Phaneuf. “We try hard to develop lines that fill a niche and give our customers a reason to buy.”

All Pipedream catalogs are available online in multiple formats, including the new Fantasy X-TensionsBonnie Rotten, and Fetish Fantasy Limited Edition interactive supplements. Distributors are urged to contact their sales rep to place an order today while supplies last.

Pipedream is The Thunder Down Under!

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 10.46.05 AMPipedream returned from the 2014 Adultex Adult Trade Exhibition with two more Adultex Awards, scoring the Best New Product Range award for the Ceramix Pleasure Pottery line and a lifetime acheivement award to CEO Nick Orlandino. The show, which is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest gathering of adult industry manufacturers and retailers, has been imperative to Pipedream’s rapid Australian growth.

“Pipedream brands continue to dominate the Australian market, owning at least half of all retail store space and online offerings,” explained VP Ruben Deitz. “Our new brands were well received by all, and we’re honored to have our Ceramix collection recognized as the Best New Product Range.”

The Pipedream booth bustled with customer activity throughout the entire three-day long event, and the manufacturer left the ninth annual trade show with more orders than ever before. CEO Nick Orlandino was presented a lifetime acheivement award for his Services to the Industry, capping off a night of fun and festivities with another personal accolade.

“I want to thank Michael Bassett and his entire crew for putting together another great show,” said Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino. “I’m honored to receive this esteemed lifetime achievement award, and I’m proud of how we continue to expand our brand presence throughout Australia and New Zealand, making Pipedream the number one brand down under.”

“At the end of the day, the most important part of business is to keep products flying off of shelves. Proven sales are just as important as innovation, and that’s why brand loyalty to Pipedream in Australia is so strong,” said Pipedream Visual Merchandiser Briana Honz. “Pipedream sales are skyrocketing in Australia and the Cal Vista team is a big part of our success!”
