Pipedream Wows Crowds at Scala Fair!

Pipedream returns from another global adventure after rocking the Scala Fair in The Netherlands this week. The intimate trade show offered the opportunity to strengthen business relationships and educate customers about Pipedream’s best-selling brands.

Attendees flocked to Pipedream’s booth for the European debut of Fantasy X-Tensions, ads-ons to the best-selling Fetish Fantasy Limited Edition and Fetish Fantasy Gold lines, as well as the much anticipated Bonnie Rotten Collection, to which the star herself appeared for pictures and autographs.

“Customers were so excited to snag the new Limited Edition items just in time for the movie,” said Brand Ambassador Cheryl Flangel. “With Bonnie Rotten in-person for selfies and champagne, it was only natural that our booth was a blast!”

“The show was busier than ever and customers were ecstatic about the reintroduction of Jimmyjane,” said Sales Executive Raymond Houtenbos. “We’d like to thank everyone at Scala for their hospitality and great efforts to make this show an incredible success.”\
