Despite local efforts to prohibit the adult entertainment convention from happening in Edison, the Exxxotica Expo "New York" show goes on this weekend to the New Jersey Expo Center. Last year, the event was forced to move from Secaucus to Edison.
The producers of the EXXXOTICA Expo are bringing the largest adult consumer show in the country back to the New Jersey Expo Center located in the Raritan Center, just off Exit 10 on the New Jersey Turnpike, this weekend, September 25 - 27. This year's show has grown tremendously from last year's event.
EXXXOTICA Expo made headlines last year after Dennis Elwell, the former Mayor of Secaucus who was recently indicted on federal corruption charges, attempted to stop the show in his town. The show moved down the New Jersey Turnpike to the New Jersey Expo Center and served over 18,000 attendees
EXXXOTICA is geared toward the adult entertainment fan, with over 100 adult film and Internet stars, both past and present, scheduled to appear.
The list includes Jesse Jane, Tera Patrick, Ron Jeremy, Jenna Haze, Gina Lynn, Teagan Presley, Bree Olson, Joanna Angel, Sasha Grey, Sunny Leone, Eva Angelina, Savanna Samson and the Vivid Girls, jessica drake and the Wicked Girls, the "Long Island Lolita" Amy Fisher, and many more.
New to this years event is "Legends of EXXXOTICA," which brings the largest gathering of adult industry hall of famers ever assembled under one roof. They include Seka, Christy Canyon, Ginger Lynn, Heather Hunter, Lisa Ann, Taylor Wane, Teri Weigel, Kylie Ireland, Sean Michaels, Mr. Marcus, Dyanna Lauren, Alexandra Silk and others.
"We wanted to do everything in our power to make this year's show bigger than 2008's," said J. Handy, Director of Victory Tradeshow Management, the event organizers. "We are delivering the stars that the fans told us they wanted to meet, and producing more interactive events on our stage and more seminars. This show is about the fans, and it's awesome to be able to bring them exactly what they want."
The convention will also showcases non-stop live entertainment on the entertainment stage. Events include interactive game shows, all-star panels, dancers, DJs, the fan favorite Ms. EXXXOTICA Competition and will culminate with performances from hip-hop pioneers, 2 Live Crew.
Also keeping attendees busy and educated is the informative seminars featuring numerous topics, including erotic literature, getting into the adult business, swinging, and social networking just to name a few.
Advance ticket sales for the event are up over 40 percent, and exhibitor sales are also far beyond last year's figures.
EXXXOTICA runs this weekend, from September 25th through the 27th, at the NJ Expo Center in the Raritan Center. The show is open to the public from 4pm until 11pm on Friday, 1pm until 11pm on Saturday, and from 12pm until 7pm on Sunday.
