And the nominations are…

Posted: April 15, 2009

The nominations for the 2009 Adult Industry Awards have been collated and we can now reveal who the finalists are in each of this year’s 17 categories. As expected, many of the biggest names in the industry are represented but there are also a number of firms – including Ultramax, Screaming O and Standard Innovation Corp – making their first appearance on the shortlists.

As in previous years, the awards have been grouped into the following categories: Products, Brands, Distributors, Retail and People, and a special award has been introduced this year to recognise Innovation in Adult.

The 2009 ETO Adult Industry Awards will take place on July 5th 2009, the first day of the ETO Show, the UK’s only dedicated trade exhibition for the adult industry.

Registered users of this site can place their votes now by visiting www.erotictradeonly.com/etoawards/awardsvoting but if you just want to see who has made the shortlist, read on…
