Tobi Garment Steamer takes top honors for Sylmark

The Electronic Retailing Association (ERA) selected the Tobi Garment Steamer as its “Product of the Year” at the 2008 ERA Annual Convention held at the Paris Hotel. Each year, the largest annual gathering of electronic retailing professionals ends with an awards dinner that celebrates the year's best in TV, online, and radio.

This is the night when E-tailers, from all over the world, come out in force to honor the most innovative, informative, and entertaining products, pitches, and industry professionals. (The ERA is the trade association for multi-channel marketing professionals who use the power of direct response to sell goods and services to the public on television, online, and on the radio.)

Accepting the award on behalf of The Sylmark Group were Katie Williams, Craig Shandler, Neil Gordon, and Justin Richards, from Ninth Tentacle. “Our $30 million media campaign has been a huge success; not only in creating demand for the Tobi Garment Steamer, but for igniting an entire product category,” said Katie Williams, Sylmark's Media Vice President. “We will continue that momentum by continuing to expand our distribution at retail.” Earlier in the evening, Sylmark received honors as Jan Mueller was awarded “Best Male Presenter” for his role as spokesperson for the Tobi Garment Steamer in the long-form infomercial produced by Ninth Tentacle.

The Tobi puts professional steam cleaning power into the hands of the consumer -- and at 5 times faster than ironing -- just may make the iron obsolete. This easy-to-use and easy-to-store garment steamer removes wrinkles and odors from even the most delicate fabrics. And if you can't live without your Tobi on the road, the Tobi Quick is an affordable, and portable version of the popular steamer that easily fits in a briefcase or overnight bag.

The Sylmark Group is a group of affiliated integrated marketing companies founded in 1998 by industry pioneers who have collectively sold nearly $3 billion of consumer products to date. The Sylmark Group is a leading developer and multi-channel marketer of innovative consumer products.
