EXXXOTICA’s Return To New Jersey Proves Triumphant On All Fronts
With three days of non-stop action this weekend, EXXXOTICA New Jersey (www.nj.eXXXoticaexpo.com) once again took the Garden State by storm. For the sixth straight year, over 20,000 attendees descended on the New Jersey Expo and Convention Center in Edison and helped EXXXOTICA further its status as the largest event in the country dedicated to love and sex for their 20th show overall. and an increased attendance for 2014 of just over 10 percent growth.
EXXXOTICA treated fans to well over 24 hours of enticing stage shows, sultry and informative seminars and unforgettable after parties — all in just three days. Men, women and couples lined up to meet over 150 stars, including legends such as Ron Jeremy and Jenna Jameson. Jenna, who made her first appearance at an adult-related event in over seven years and her first-ever in New Jersey, had hundreds of fans lining up hours in advance of her scheduled signing time. The frenzied anticipation of her arrival called for extra security, as a chance to meet the superstar has been so rare. A member of the show’s management likened the scene to the line of people waiting to ride a roller coaster at Great Adventure. But Jameson wasn’t the only star attracting excited fans. Attendees were also able to meet more of their favorites, such as Asa Akira, Lisa Ann, jessica drake, Stormy Daniels, Tori Black, Allie Haze, Lexi Belle, Tasha Reign and dozens more including mainstream gossip page fixtures such as “Tan Mom” and “Weinergate” centerpiece, Sydney Leathers.
Over 100 exhibitors showcasing the wild to the mild packed the convention center floor, giving attendees a shopping experience to remember. Many returning exhibitors reported record sales for any EXXXOTICA event, and new companies expressed their desire to return to future shows due in large part to an increased attendance for EXXXOTICA New Jersey of just over 10% from last year’s event.
EXXXOTICA New Jersey was the fourth and final show of 2013 for producers Three Expo Events, who also saw record-setting shows in Chicago and Fort Lauderdale, as well as the launch of EXXXOTICA Atlantic City this past April.
“This was an incredible year for EXXXOTICA,” said J. Handy, the expo’s director and creator. “With our Atlantic City launch, a successful move from Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale and increased attendance in Chicago and Edison this year, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you to all of the fans, stars and companies for your support this year, and we promise to continue making EXXXOTICA bigger and better for years to come. 2014 is going to be epic!”
Plans are already fast and furious for EXXXOTICA Atlantic City, which will be returning to the Trump Taj Mahal Casino and Hotel, April 11-13, 2014. One of the main events of the weekend will once again be the presentation of the EXXXOTICA Fan Choice Awards (www.thefannys.com) — adult entertainment’s only awards show chosen by the fans, for the fans.
