Exxxotica Expo Wraps First Show in Atlantic City
LOS ANGELES — The Exxxotica Expo for the first time went to Atlantic City, N.J., last weekend, reporting a strong turnout for the three-day consumer show.
A wide variety of exhibitors and more than 150 porn stars interacted with fans at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino & Resort. Club Spotlight, LA Direct Models, HotMovies, Clips4Sale, and Star Valley were among the exhibitors that featured some of the top performers in the industry.
The AEBN stage showcased daily performances from the likes of Rubberdoll, Rigor Mortis Revue, Evan Stone, DJ Geenius, The Benson Twins, Savage Men, adult performer panels and the Ms. Exxxotica competition. The seminar area included discussions on topics such as breaking into the business, improving your sex life, swinging and more led by established stars such as James Deen, Goddess Sonya, Tera Patrick and more.
On Saturday, the first Exxxotica Fan Choice Awards, dubbed The Fannys, came to the Grand Ballroom at the Trump Taj Majal. The show was taped for future cable broadcast.
“It’s funny to think that AC was one of the first locations we considered when we first started Exxxotica in 2005,” said J. Handy, director of Exxxotica. “Fast forward eight years later and we're no longer aspiring to create an event — we've created one, and it's the best in the industry.”
When the show closed, after-parties commenced at venues such as Dusk at Caesars, Ivan Kane’s Royal Jelly Burlesque Club at Revel, the Diving Horse and Bare Exposure with an all-star roster of stars hosting, including James Deen, Tera Patrick, Allie Haze, Alexis Texas, Teagan Presley, Lisa Ann, Lexi Belle and Kristina Rose.
Plans are already underway for a return to AC in 2014, but next up on the calendar is the eighth year back in the South Florida area when Exxxotica comes to the Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, May 31-June 2. For more information on Exxxotica South Florida, click here.
