Let the lobbying begin – voting is now officially OPEN!

Posted: May 9, 2014

We can now reveal the finalists for the ETO Awards 2014 in association with Fleshlight and announce that voting is live! As they are every year, the finalists were chosen from the nominations of registered users of this site and the winners will be decided by the same method – voting will close on Friday 6th June so please click here to choose your favourites. [Please note that only registered users of the site with a valid log-in can vote.]

24 products, 29 brands, 21 distributors and 12 different retailers are in the running for an ETO Award this year with Lelo, Rocks-Off and Pipedream leading the way with seven, six and five nominations respectively in the Products and Brands sections. The introduction of new categories in the Distributors section has seen the serial-winning big names joined by a number of specialist suppliers receiving their first nomination, while in the Retail category Harmony picked up four nominations, Simply Pleasure has three and on two apiece are Ann Summers, Lovehoney and Saints & Sinners.

In People, Best Sales Team and Services to the Industry have long been regarded by many as the most prestigious Awards of the night but we suspect the newly introduced Best Store Manager will be equally coveted this year. Special congratulations to all five of the finalists in this category, who came through a very crowded field. Details of all the finalists can be found on pages 28 – 36 of the latest issue of ETO.

The winners will be revealed live on stage on the evening of Sunday 22nd June in the Concourse Suite at the NEC complex, just outside Birmingham. If the date and venue look familiar, that is because the Awards Dinner is held on the evening of the first day of the annual ETO Show – the UK’s only dedicated trade event for the adult retail sector.

Please note that you don’t have to be nominated to join in the celebrations. Individual tickets cost £95 each (or £900 for a table of ten). This includes welcome reception, three-course dinner with wine and live entertainment. To book your place at the Awards Dinner, contact Jonathan Kirk on 07786 925080 or email him at jonathan@etoshow.com
