FERNDALE, Mich. — Adult distributor Nalpac held its 5th annual open house in Detroit last month with more than 50 manufacturers and a record number of buyers making for an advantageous three-day event.

Both manufacturers and Nalpac customers from across the country gathered in Detroit again, for what has become a fun-filled three-day open house complete with delicious food, amazing live entertainment, and this year was capped off with live fireworks spectacular over the Detroit River.

Nalpac 2018 open house featured top manufacturers showing off the latest in pleasure products, adult novelties, lingerie, body products, lubricants, enhancements and more.

Heading into the busy holiday season, retailers were able to see a wide range of items to make creative and unique displays; as well as; participate in two educational “Build Your Business Luncheons.” The education-focused luncheons featured Zoe Ligon talking about the power of social media and Ducky Doolittle talking about caring for difficult situations on the retail floor.

“This year’s open house was a wonderful time with wonderful people,” said Amy Lazzara, Nalpac creative director and open house organizer.

“The success of our open house is the beginning of so much for Nalpac, 2019 here we come. We want to thank all of our manufacturers for their support; we couldn’t have done it without you. To all our customers — thank you for coming, ordering and having a blast Detroit style.”

Steve Craig, Nalpac CEO, said: “We truly appreciate the continued support of our customers and manufacturing partners. We have made a tremendous number of improvements to Nalpac since our last open house, and it was exciting to share all the changes with everyone as well as introduce our exclusive Nalpac Mobile App.”

The Nalpac Mobile App now offers retailers an easy to use handheld resource to place orders, or access account information.

The Nalpac Mobile App empowers busy retailers to place orders directly from their mobile device, including while on the retail floor. Retailers are able to build a cart to place an order in a matter of minutes or create one or more “shopping lists” to later view, change and ultimately order.

Retailers can search for items by scanning any UPC, entering Nalpac or manufacturer part numbers or simply searching by keyword. In addition to simplified ordering; Nalpac Mobile provides both account information, including invoices, tracking information, and detailed order history along with the latest news, new product releases and current promotions.

“Each year our open house gets bigger and better,” said Don Zerilli, Nalpac Senior Buyer. “This year was no different, and we can’t thank everyone enough who participated, for helping create such a fantastic experience. We want to give an extra special thank you to our event sponsors Cal Exotics, System JO, XR Brands, Pipedream, Nasstoys and Wet who helped keep the party going.”
