StorErotica Reveals Nominees for 4th Annual Awards Show

CLEARWATER, Fla.—Adult retail trade publication StorErotica has announced its list of official nominees for the 4th Annual StorErotica Awards. Voting begins July 7 and runs through July 28.

The StorErotica Awards ceremony takes place Aug. 24, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The awards presentation immediately follows StorErotica’s “Heads of State” roundtable discussions, where convention attendees can sit down with 10 influential personalities in the erotic retail industry.

“Whether they represent storefronts, distribution or manufacturing, the scope of the StorErotica Awards aims to recognize all of those businesses who consistently strive for excellence in erotic retail,” StorErotica Magazine Editor Kristofer Kay said. “In such a complex industry, where innovation is being raised practically on a daily basis, nominating only a few companies is challenging. But we’re confident that the best of the best are represented on this year’s ballot.”

New to this year’s awards show is the inclusion of the StorErotica Special Focus Award given to a specific market segment that was spotlighted within the magazine’s pages. This year’s award focuses on male enhancement products.
