For 20 years already the organizers of the Venus fair in Berlin gather a huge crowd of fans and adult business people. And it’s remarkable that even the show shrunk in size over the years, it’s still larger than the AVN Expo in Las Vegas. This years anniversary event was spread over four halls of the Messezentrum beim Funkturm, Berlins largest exhibition area. The offerings were quite diverse, from adult novelties to virtual reality.
Also for the 20th time, the Venus Awards were given away. This year hosted by Niels Ruf (a former TV show host) and Paula Rowe, a german porn actress. While the fair itself was surely larger than the counterpart in Las Vegas as mentioned above, the award show crown stays definitely in Vegas. It’s where the big shows are made, most likely also in January 2017.
Big congratulations to the makers of the Venus show, it’s quite a challenge sailing through 20 years of adult business with all its lows and heights.
This years Venus Award show was held in the Ellington Hotel in Berlin. It took place on the 19th of October and gathered together a huge number of industry people, from porn over novelties to web. It was presented by industry veteran Conny Dachs and former actress Mia Julia (aka Mia Magma). A good number of trophies has been handed out to all kind of achievements.

One of the biggest adult industry events is going to happen very soon. It’s the Venus Fair in Berlin. It’s one of the few venues where porn is still playing a major role. Many well known producers will be there, some even have a booth. And of course many pornstars will be in Berlin to pose for photos or give autographs. Of course the novelties and fashion producers also occupy a large amount of exhibition space.
On the 17th in the evening the Venus Awards are handed out. The gala dinner takes place in the Ellington Hotel. Table tickets for 495 Euro per person are still available for those that are interested to be part of the show that includes a dinner.
