Pipedream Returns From Another Award-Winning Week at eroFame!

Pipedream has returned home from another successful eroFame trade show in Germany, where its “Dream Team” impressed attendees from around the world and the company continued its rapid global expansion.

The U.S. based manufacturer took home four more industry accolades, including awards for Best U.S. Manufacturer and Best Selling Brand of the Year for the Fetish Fantasy Limited Edition Series.

Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino was also honored with a lifetime achievement award for his lasting contributions to the adult industry, and named Business Man of the Year for the third consecutive year.

As always, the Pipedream team entertained show attendees from around the world with their signature blend of business and pleasure.

“It’s amazing for me to watch our continued growth and success on a global level. As the awards continue to pile up, each one we receive renews my commitment to building Pipedream into the largest brand in the world,” said CEO Nick Orlandino.

“I want to thank my whole team for their hard work and dedication, and I would like to personally thank EAN and SIGN magazine for these honors. Going into my 30th year in the industry, it’s extra special to be recognized for my life’s work.”

The three-day trade convention, which is Europe’s largest international B2B trade show, took place from October 9-11 at Expo City Hannover, Germany.

With over 185 exhibitors present, Pipedream’s booth stole the spotlight and reached max capacity each day, as attendees were eager to see the latest offerings from the company’s award-winning brands.

Well-stocked with freshly baked pretzels and ice-cold German beer on tap, the huge booth featured beautiful wall-to-wall graphics and over 500 products on display, making it once again the talk of the show and the center of attention at eroFame 2013.

In true Pipedream fashion, the manufacturer held a private dinner party at an upscale restaurant in downtown Hannover to celebrate the company’s 40th year anniversary.

The invitation-only gala drew an unprecedented mix of Pipedream’s top foreign and domestic customers, who all came together under one roof to celebrate forty years of Pipedream’s success.

“Our dinner was a personal thank you to all of our customers around the globe for helping make Pipedream the #1 brand in the world. It was amazing to see all the major players in our industry partying together — it was a night I’ll never forget!”, said Orlandino.

The show featured the European debuts of Pipedream’s three newest lines: Ceramix Pleasure Pottery, Pure Aluminium, and the Anal Fantasy Collection, as well as the release of Pipedream’s Fetish Fantasy Series Big Box Set catalog collection.

Pipedream Scores Third Consecutive “Best of Local Business” Award!

The US Commerce Association has presented Pipedream with another “Best of Chatsworth” Award. This is the third consecutive year the manufacturer has received the accolade in the Gifts & Novelties category.

“Nationally, fewer than 1% of the 2013 Awards were certified as three-time awardees,” notes USCA’s Taylor James. “For most companies, this recognition is a result of [their] dedication and efforts. [Pipedream] is now part of an exclusive group of businesses that have achieved this selection.”

Local businesses across the country are awarded the “Best of Local Business” Award based on information gathered by the USCA and data provided by third parties. The USCA says the Award Program “focuses on quality, not quantity,” choosing winners based on their use of various marketing methods to expand their business in spite of difficult economic times, often leading through customer service and community involvement.

“It’s great to be recognized in our community, especially by a mainstream organization, which makes it that much sweeter,” says Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino. “It shows Pipedream’s commitment to excellence in all facets of our business, and we’re honored to receive this award for the third time.”
