LAS VEGAS, NV — President and CEO of the multi-award winning men’s sexual health products company Perfect Fit Brand, Steve Callow, confirms that he will be participating in a panel discussion on Thursday, Jan. 19, at the upcoming AVN Novelty Expo in Las Vegas.
“I’m thrilled to be part of this panel; I’ve seen many strategies in play to address the needs of these communities, and clearly there isn’t one ‘right’ way,” said Callow. “The changing landscape of retail in general, as well as the emergence of brands like ours, which don’t identify as gay or straight, yet play well into both markets, make for new challenges for the retailer.” said Callow.
Plus retailers and distributors, Callow will be on the “I’m Coming Out“ panel from 11 a.m. to noon in Festival Hall C near Paradise Tower, which discusses marketing to the LGBTQ community.
“Marketing sex toys to the LGBT consumer poses an interesting set of challenges,” reads the panel description. “Retailers need to gain understanding about everything from gender pronouns to sexual preferences, and all points in between. Panelists discuss how sales personnel can create inclusivity and an educated, safe space for LGBT consumers to shop comfortably, both online as well as in brick-and-mortar retail stores.” Berman will be joined by Coyote Amrich of Good Vibrations, Sarah Sloane of Sloane Consulting, and Stephanie Berman of Berman Innovations. The panel will be moderated by Anne Hodder.
“Perfect Fit strives to reach the distinct and individual needs of our customers; for the LGBT community, that means being conscious of our communications, from branded materials and product design to our customer service interactions,” Callow said. “We’re proud to be one of many leading the charge into greater inclusivity of consumer marketing and LGBT cultural competency in marketing and sales in the sexual health realm. I’m grateful for the opportunity ANE has provided us in sharing our expertise and company standards, in an effort to help elevate the LGBT consumer experience in adult novelty and sexual health.”
