Many industry people and fans or consumers have been waiting a long time for the real life shows to finally open again. While the many online shows in the past months were the only solution to keep brands and networks alive, nothing is more intense and powerful than the real thing.
So finally it seems the entertainment locomotive is slowly starting to move. The first show that came to our attention just finished today on the 26th of May: The Affiliate Grand Slam in Dubai. It's more a mainstream affiliate marketing event, that's why it has not been listed on AIE but still many adult industry people were heading there.
Next up on the schedule is The European Summit starting on 2nd of July. The traditional networking conference for digital products. There are two novelties coming with it: First, it will be held as so-called hybrid conference. That means part of it will be online, part physical. The physical part will be, for the first time, in the coast village of Marbella in Spain. The event hotel will have a large outdoor garden area where the show takes place. Due to the outside location attendants should feel more confident about their safety. The number of people is limited and registration for the live event has not opened yet. As of now it's only possible to get a ticket for the virtual show.
The organizers of the consumer shows Exxxotica have also announced all published dates of the four 2021 events are confirmed. The show in Chicago (Rosemont) will be kicking off the resurrection of dancing models, signing pornstars and sexual pleasures. Held from the 16th to the 18th of July at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont in the US state of Illinois. It's also going to be the 10th anniversary of that Exxxotica.
