AVN Novelty Expo Exhibitors Going Greener

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—The AVN Novelty Expo has long been known for presenting cutting-edge novelties and showcasing companies that have their finger on the pulse of the next big thing in the pleasure products industry.

With the upcoming trade show, which is scheduled for July 7-9 at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, Calif., ANE will showcase companies who are taking a different approach to manufacturing pleasure products.

Crystal Delights manufactures dildos and anal plugs that are handmade from the highest quality natural materials such as medical-grade Pyrex glass and lead-free, fired, purified clay. Once completed each unique Crystal Delights sex toy is adorned with a sparkling, genuine Swarovski element.

“It’s important to us to be good not only to our customers, but to the environment,” said Shellie Yarnell, creative director for Crystal Delights. “From the ingredients we use to the manufacturing process, we want to make sure that we make a difference without creating or doing anything harmful.”

Also exhibiting at ANE is njoy. Known for beautifully handcrafted metal sex toys, the company strives to elevate the wholesome experience of sexual exploration, sharing and pleasure.

“We offer you the finest designs our naughty minds can dream up, the highest quality new-world craftsmanship, and the purest materials available for safety and infinite durability” is njoy’s company philosophy.

Papaya Toys will also be at ANE, offering up high-tech vibrators as opposed to glass or metal items like other exhibitors. But by using the highest quality materials and setting the highest standards when it comes to manufacturing, the company takes being environmentally conscious seriously.

“Papaya Toys is excited to be exhibiting at this year's ANE in Pasadena,” said Pamela McKee (aka Papaya Pam), managing partner of Papaya Toys U.S. “When we saw the exhibitor list, it was quite apparent that we would be exhibiting with some of the most eco-friendly and socially responsible companies out there today. We really felt this year's show is a little different and would be a good fit for Papaya Toys.”

The AVN Novelty Expo is the novelty industry's premier B2B event. For more than a decade, hundreds of qualified buyers from around the world have gathered for this premier buyers' conference and exhibition, where manufacturers debut new products and buyers make their most important purchasing decisions of the year. The buyer base includes distributors, retailers, exporters, mail order companies, large home party organizers, and individuals or companies involved in large volume purchases. Exhibitors range from entrepreneurs offering one or two specialized items to premier manufacturers who produce a vast array of traditional favorites and cutting-edge designs.
