Buyers Get Free Product at ANE

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – It's not enough that the AVN Novelty Expo is the premiere B2B event for the adult pleasure industry, now buyers attending this year's event will get free products as well.

All buyers who register by May 15 to attend the AVN Novelty Expo, set for July 13-15 at the Sheraton Universal and Hilton Los Angeles hotels in Universal City, Calif., will receive vouchers that can be redeemed during the show with any exhibitor.

"This is a new program," explained Renee Johnson, senior show manager for AVN Media Network. "We wanted to be able to help our customers in the slumping economy. This is just one more incentive for buyers to stay and take advantage of all that ANE has to offer."

Every buyer or company registering before May 15 will receive a special envelope set aside for them for July 14 and 15.  Each envelope will contain a randomly selected voucher valued between $25 and $500, valid for the remainder of the show. The vouchers can be redeemed with any exhibitor in exchange for product and to increase wholesale orders.

"We're always looking for new ways to add value to the show, and the voucher plan has already met with extremely positive reaction," AVN Novelty Business Publisher Tony Lovett said. "It's a great way to offset travel expenses and the like."

Vouchers are limited to one per buyer or company per day, but some lucky buyers could wind up with a total of $1,000 in free product.

"The voucher program implemented for the upcoming ANE is an excellent way for new and existing customers alike to explore new product lines and provide a little extra something to hit their bottom line," said Brian Vatter, co-founder of OhMiBod.

In addition to the new voucher program, ANE will also offer more profit-boosting seminars than ever before to help businesses thrive in the troubled economy. Find out how to get mainstream press, the best way to educate your staff, and why analysts believe 2009 will stimulate demand for sex toys.

If its after-hours networking you crave, ANE 2009 is a must-attend event. The schedule is full of opportunities to mix business with pleasure. The fun begins Monday night with a Welcome Party to kick off the event. ANE will also feature cocktail mixers each night after the show, as well as the 1st Annual O Awards, presented by AVN Novelty Business magazine.
