The numbers are in and the 2009 NY -NJ EXXXOTICA Expo wrapped up its second year. AdultChamber was there with a double booth and “BUSY” would be an understatement.The traffic figures, straight from the organizers, Victory Tradeshow Management, report this year’s event exceeded 18,000 total attendees. With a convention hall that was more than twice the size of the year before, the exhibitors were kept very busy. In addition to the record-breaking number of attendees for the show, EXXXOTICA saw a media blitz featuring over 100 outlets covering the show, including all of the major network news covering the show.Members of the media broke the story that a last-minute attempt by the Edison city council to amend zoning ordinances that would outlaw the show if it was within 1,000 feet of a public park, school or house of worship. But despite their efforts, the show went on without a hitch, as the venue was approximately eight inches safely outside of the council’s imposed boundaries, allowing the show to go on as scheduled and without any additional restrictions.
There was one booth that was sponsored by Genesis Magazine. It hosted such adult superstars as Jesse Jane, Sasha Grey, Jenna Haze, Teagan Presley, Eva Angelina, Bree Olson, Kayden Kross, Sunny Leone, Gina Lynn, Savanna Samson and her fellow Vivid Girls Monique Alexander, AJ Bailey and Meggan Mallone, Nina Mercedez, Taryn Thomas, Isis Taylor, Moxxie Maddron, Lexi Love, Alexis Ford and the final adult industry appearance of Penny Flame.
This year’s show also marked the debut of “Legends of EXXXOTICA,” which featured the largest collection of adult hall of famers ever assembled under one roof. XXX icons such as Seka, Lisa Ann, Heather Hunter, Kylie Ireland, Sean Michaels, Taylor Wane, Teri Weigel, Ginger Lynn, Christy Canyon, Mr. Marcus, Alexandra Silk, Luc Wylder, and more greeted enthusiastic fans for the three days of the show. The new attraction was an overwhelming hit for the attendees, stars and media.
J. Handy of Victory Tradeshow Management, the producers of EXXXOTICA, summed the weekend up best. The feedback from the exhibitors and attendees has been nothing short of amazing on what a success this year’s show was. The Sheraton Hotel is located just down the street. That is where the staff at AdultChamber stayed. We can confirm that the hotels was completely sold out, and area restaurants and other businesses related to their guests saw an increase in business and we’re glad to have contributed to the local economy.
