New Exhibitors Shine a Light on Innovative Trends, Tech Advancements

CHATSWORTH, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2014) -  AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) and AVN Novelty Expo (ANE), the two powerhouse porn conferences that converge under one roof to host the best and brightest names in the adult industry, will showcase brand-new exhibitors that will make an impact in 2014.

The Expos are bringing more than gorgeous women, sex toys and a rowdy good time to Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel & Casino January 15-18; more overflow traffic from electronics/tech trade show Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is expected than ever before, with the focus on burgeoning technology in home delivery, pleasure products and social media.

Visitors to AEE can expect 89 new exhibitor displays along the bustling halls of the Expo this year, a 10% increase over last year, while adult B2B confab Internext (January 11-14) has added 33 innovative sponsors to its four-day festivities, making a clear case that the adult industry is bouncing back and finding new ways to thrive in the face of an uncertain economy the past few years.

"The adult business has seen its share of ups and downs, but in 2014 we are already noticing an upswing in corporate support and sponsorship, which is quite a promising sign for AEE," says Theo Sapoutzis, CEO of The AVN Network. "Technological advances in the adult industry run hand-in-hand with mainstream so we expect to see more CES attendees coming to AEE and ANE than in recent years."

All fan, trade and press attendees may go to www.AdultEntertainmentExpo.com for the 2014 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), which will be held at Hard Rock Hotel, in Las Vegas, Nevada this January. AEE will showcase an incredible lineup of the biggest names the adult industry has to offer, the hottest adult stars from around the world, a robust trade seminar program, stage shows, musical performances, and a first look at the cutting-edge technology behind some of the most innovative sex toys and novelties on the market today, and in the future. Hard Rock Hotel will host all facets of the expo, as well as the 2014 AVN Awards Show. The festivities open on Wednesday, January 15th through Saturday, January 18th, 2014.
