Vivid Video and ClubJenna Title Sponsors of Storerotica; Exhibitors Offering 7% Discount on Purchases Made at the Show; Stores and Owners to be Honored at 1st Annual Storerotica Awards.
Vivid Video and ClubJenna are Title Sponsors and exhibitors for the upcoming Storerotica Convention and Tradeshow August 27-29, 2007, at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, where more than 70 percent of the companies exhibiting are part of the Storerotica Preferred Vendors Program. Those vendors are offering store owners a 7% discount off all orders placed at the show; that discount is off the lowest prices store owners have ever paid in the past for the same products.
Storerotica, produced by Adult Store Buyer (ASB) Magazine and Teeze Magazine, is a national business-to-business show for the owners and operators of adult retail stores and intimate apparel stores and the manufacturers and distributors whose products they sell. Access to the Storerotica Tradeshow—which is now sold out—is free for store owners and industry professionals; the show does offer a paid registration package that allows attendees to attend three days of panels and workshops, the 1st Annual Storerotica Awards Show, two evening parties, continental business breakfasts, and the Adult Club Owners Expo Tradeshow being held at the same time.
Vivid and ClubJenna join an incredible roster of major adult movie production companies that will be exhibiting at the Storerotica show. Also on the Tradeshow floor will be Anabolic Video, Digital Playground, Digital Sin, Empire Video, Heat Wave Entertainment, Hellhouse Media, Mercenary Pictures, Metro Interactive, Nectar Entertainment, New Sensations, Pleasure Productions, Red Light District, Shane’s World Studios, United Video Corp., Wicked Pictures and Zero Tolerance.
"We are very honored to have Vivid Video and ClubJenna as Title Sponsors of Storerotica," says John Cornetta who, with Don Waitt, publishes ASB and Teeze Magazines and who both produce the show. "I think their endorsement, plus the involvement of other heavyweights in the adult entertainment industry shows that they recognize the impact that both ASB and Teeze Magazines have had on store owners and buyers across the country. They are taking the time and the expense to be at this show because they know that this new Tradeshow, like our publications, is designed with but one goal in mind—to promote their products to the actual buyers."
In choosing to be a Title Sponsor, Vivid’s Howard Levine noted that Vivid Entertainment and ClubJenna are looking forward to promoting their brands not only to the adult product and intimate apparel retail store owners and buyers who will be attending Storerotica, but also to the more than 1,500 adult nightclub owners who will be attending the 15th Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo being held across the hall from Storerotica. Those adult nightclub owners, many of whom have adult boutiques inside their clubs or own adult retail stores in addition to owning adult nightclubs, will be attending the Storerotica Tradeshow as well as the Club Owners Expo events.
The Storerotica Tradeshow is also drawing as exhibitors major adult product manufacturers and distributors, including B. Cumming, Blush Novelties, East Coast News, GVA-TVN, Ivd, PipeDream, Achella, Absolute Concepts, Coast to Coast Entertainment, Effex, MD Science Lab, Millennium Laboratories, O!Zone Wholesale, Profit Pak, Pulse Products, the Screaming O
, and the "O" Zone Distributing.
The intimate apparel industry will also be well represented on the Tradeshow floor with booths from Allure Leather, Blue Orchid Exoticwear, BodyZone Apparel, Desire Fashions, Electric Lingerie, Elegant Moments and Elegant Leather, Fantasy Lingerie, Floodline, G World Collections, Hustler Lingerie, Karo Shoes, Leg Avenue, Magic Silk, Miko, Minor Creations, N-fini, Penthouse Lingerie, Penthouse Shoes, Penthouse Swimwear, Pleaser USA, Reflection Shoes, Rene Rofe, Sexy in Miami, Spare Pair, Tabu Footwear and Tony Shoes.
Other Storerotica event sponsors include HotMovies.com, Hellhouse Media, Rockman Entertainment, Xbiz Publications, Shane’s World Studios, Penthouse Nightclub & Cabaret, and Sapphire Las Vegas.
Nearly 20 industry experts, including attorneys, marketing experts, leading industry vendors and successful store and chain owners will educate and entertain full-program attendees at Storerotica 2007. These panel sessions, workshops and seminars will encompass numerous areas that are critical to store owners and operators, including marketing tips, future industry trends, priceless legal and security advice, and much more.
"The ideas and information that store owners will take away from the Storerotica panel sessions, seminars and workshops is immeasurable," says Teeze Associate Publisher Dave Manack. "There are Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo attendees who come to the convention every year strictly for the ‘educational’ aspect. In the years to come, we expect Storerotica attendees to do the same."
In addition to the 140-plus booth Storerotica tradeshow, store owner attendees are invited to visit the 250-plus booth Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo Tradeshow directly across the hall. There, Storerotica attendees with full- program badges can see exhibitors offering products and services for their stores, including carpeting and furnishings companies, signage companies, insurance companies, promotional items companies, architects, security system companies, accounting and financial companies, and much more. "These are the types of exhibitors that store owners simply will not see at other industry conventions, so they need to be sure to take advantage of this golden opportunity to improve their business!" says Cornetta.
Storerotica is produced by Teeze Magazine , which is in its fourth year as the trade journal for lingerie and intimate apparel stores; Adult Store Buyer Magazine , which is marking year three as the trade magazine geared specifically to the adult store operators themselves; and Ed Publications, which has published guides and club bulletins for the adult nightclub and exotic dancing industry for more than 17 years.
