Pipedream 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 achievement 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,” said Pipedream vice president, Ruben Deitz. “Our new brands were well received by all, and we’re honoured to have our Ceramix collection recognised 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 achievement 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 Orlandino. “I’m honoured 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!”
