The Exxxotica Expo is an annual adult themed event that is fast becoming an unvarying fiesta for its ticket holders. The expo is a three day event with an adult theme tailored to the interest of its attendees. The main genre of the show focuses on Adult Entertainment, Erotica and Pornography.
The expo first had its debut in May 2006 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The show proved to be a success and was continued annually. Its popularity spread to other cities such as Chicago and Atlantic City. The newest city to welcome the event in 2013 is Ft. Lauderdale in Florida.
Founder J Handy is excited about the Ft. Lauderdale addition and looks forward to what the city will offer attendees. The show initially produced by Victory Tradeshow Management is no stranger to south Florida. The Exxxotica billed as a “Celebration of Sexy”, is a testament to the Adult Entertainment Industry.
Exxxotica has featured top recognized names to include Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick and Ron Jeremy. These entertainers have been featured in films with national and world wide distribution. Attendees have appreciated the experience of rubbing elbows with such top personalities.
Critics of the event have alleged that the festival violate certain state laws and have filed injunctions against the expo. In 2008 Secaucus, New Jersey filed an injunction claiming the expo violated liquor and pornographic law stipulations. Other related suits stemming from the event have called for expo promoters to be reimbursed expenses for such cancellations.
It’s apparent that city officials have mixed views of the relevance of supporting the expo in their municipalities. Some welcome the economic bump and despise the adult content nature of the event. Supporters of the expo purport that the future growth is dependent on the sustained life expectancy of the festival.
Exxxotica, held a show in Los, Angeles California in 2010 and attracted approximately 15,000.00 attendees. It can be theorized that success lies in the ability of the promoters of garnering support of officials of larger municipalities. The turnout in L.A., California represented a mix culture of attendees from the area.
Exxxotica was held in Miami Beach in 2008 and attracted 24,000 festival goers. The promising turnout led to continual promotions in the area. Attendees display enthusiasm for the event as evidenced by ticket sales and residual walk in attendance.
The largest attendance recorded to date is 26,500 attendees. This number was established in 2011 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Illinois. Chicago being a major metro hub was ideal for promoting the expo arrival dates.
The Exxxotica Expo prices are $39.99 for a single day’s ticket and $69.99 for a single day at VIP status. VIP’s are privy to enhanced access to event festivities which makes the experience unforgettable.
In addition, three day VIP tickets are available online for purchase at the price of $139.99 per attendee. Single day tickets can be purchased at the box office and walk in patrons are welcome for purchases during the event.
Expo founder J Handy is delighted with the steady growth and branding of the Exxxotica Expo. He appreciates its notable exposure in pop culture and in the current Adult market industry. The Exxxotica Expo has developed a steady growing follow-ship within its venues.
