Each year normally starts with a bang when it comes to adult industry events. The two big ones take both place in January. First we have the B2B conference XBIZ 360 in Los Angeles starting on the 13th, then the Adult Entertainment Expo on the 21st in Las Vegas. Both feature relevant awards shows for the business, let’s see who is going to get a trophy. Specially for the fans the AEE will always be a big thing, because that’s the place where all the big stars are just a hug away.
And between the two shows it does not get boring, industry people have also the Internext convention to attend. And everyone else the Sexual Health Expo in Los Angeles. It will be 2 busy weeks on Americas west coast.
Hope everyone has a good start into 2015 !
Once a year and for the 18th time already, the Venus Berlin has just finished. This time the organizers abandoned the idea of creating a separate B2B area, also there was no “trade only” day. It was 4 days of full porn power. Well visible were all the webcam and amateur girls, most with their own both even. An ideal situation for the fans. And the fans came in great numbers. The convention always felt pretty busy.
On the opening day there were already the famous Venus Awards handed out. The show took place at the Ellington Hotel like last year. While the food was better this time, it was missing some more entertainment. Where have the “Weather Girls” been?
Some of the winners were:
BEST ACTRESS (INTERNATIONAL)
BEST ACTRESS (NATIONAL)
BEST PORN CAREER
Salma De Nora
Friday night, the Netstars Party took place at the Adagio Club where more or less every girl there got some award. Later on, the crown was rocking the house. Saturday night then, it was big party time in one of the convention halls. Quite an interesting concept with some nice shows on the stage. At least there was plenty of space compared to last year in Club Felix.
