Adult Entertainment Expo

There is no destination more ideal for the annual Adult Entertainment Expo than Sin City. The adult entertainment trade show in Las Vegas kicks off each year in January, around the same time that tech-junkies the world over are scrambling to get in to the renowned Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Vegas AVN Convention is hosted at the Sands Expo Convention Center, situated right on the Las Vegas Strip. Lauded as the world's biggest adult entertainment industry event, the largest number of attendees—including both industry members and exhibitors—has reached more than 30,000, with almost 400 companies exhibiting a wide variety of products.

One of the key features of the adult entertainment trade show in Las Vegas are the AVN Awards Shows. Often called the "X-Rated Oscars," the awards show was moved from the Grand Ballroom at the Venetian Hotel, which seats 4,000 people, to the Mandalay Bay Events Center, with a massive space seating up to 7,000. The AVN Awards Show is definitely the highlight of the Vegas AVN Convention for many. This event honors excellence in the field of adult entertainment acting with more than 100 separate categories including best actor, best actress, and best sex scene. Each year the Adult Entertainment Expo secures big names in the industry as well as popular musicians and other stars to attend and present awards.

The Adult Entertainment Expo is not for the faint of heart. It truly is for those with experience in or with adult entertainment. From the moment each person enters, it's sensory overload. Racy clothing, sexy lingerie, scores of pigtails, tight skirts, and plenty of insiders with barely a stitch of clothing are everywhere. Music blares from various booths while stars sign promotional pictures for fans. Crowds flood every aisle and the energy is contagious. Though most attendees attest that the adult entertainment show in Las Vegas really is one, giant sales convention, some might say otherwise. Either way, in this industry, work might not seem like such a tough job.

Though there are certainly a large number interesting characters attending the Adult Entertainment Expo, the true purpose of the show is for sales and for networking. Industry insiders get a chance to mingle with others in the adult entertainment business, exchange cards, see what other film companies are up to and peruse hundreds of the latest adult-geared products and services. Buyers, directors, actors, and fans all gather for this unique and risque show, right in the heart of one of the most exhilarating cities in the world.

With so many attractions around, and a world of evening entertainment available, anyone attending the Vegas AVN Convention will have no problem finding that perfect Las Vegas burlesque show, getting tickets to great Vegas concerts or getting in to some of the hottest Las Vegas bars and nightclubs around. There are plenty of avenues ideal for taking the high energy from the adult entertainment trade show in Las Vegas and funneling it into any number of things to do in the city.
