This year's Marketer of the Year Awards is scheduled for tomorrow night at Chateau Nightclub atop the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. This amazing retail celebration is an award ceremony of the best infomercial products at the top their class, raking in a mass percentage of the $100 billion dollar-per-year industry. This is like the Oscars for infomercials. This year, forget the lonely Snuggies and the Shake Weight--Awards are up for The Sensa Weight Loss System, The Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer and The Genie Bra. [Racked Wire]
