The Venus fair in Berlin has a long history, actually 21 years of history. And–which is good for the organizers–it has not lost much of is sparkle until now. Each year it attracts thounds and thousands of sexcurious visitors. It’s still one of the largest adult shows in the world for business and pleasure.
Sure, one thing that has changed over the years. There was quite a shift in the exhibitors department. Most of the traditional porn companies disappeared while webcam, virtual reality and novelty companies took over. Also more and more Asian companies find their way to Germanys capital city.
2017 Venus offered again several industry events, the most important one the Award show which–for the first time–was held at a new location, the Marshallhaus behind the exhibition area.
Some of the winners were:
Best Online VOD Platform
Beate Uhse Movie
Best International Label
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.
