AEE is one of the largest adult trade shows in the world and includes a unique conference program specifically tailored for industry professionals. AEE trade registration includes admission to the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE), the industry’s leading B2B trade expo for pleasure products, taking place concurrently with AEE.

“We recognize the cutting-edge nature of the adult industry and it is important that AEE continues to reflect this quality,” show spokesperson Sean Devlin said. “Attendees have the opportunity to connect with the biggest stars in the industry and the principal players in the business and witness an overwhelming display of modern technology in this unique and exciting expo.”

Trade attendees who register before Oct. 15 will get a $100 early bird summer special. Trade registration provides an all-access badge to all AEE and ANE seminars, the main exhibit hall during all show hours, and the AVN Novelty Expo.

Special fan tickets also are now available at early bird rates. The VIP Fan Package, which is priced at $75, includes access to the show floor an hour earlier than general admission, a dedicated registration area, an AEE Show Directory and a complimentary T-shirt. General fan tickets are available now for $55 before Oct. 15.

As it’s done year after year, the 2011 AEE will showcase a glittering lineup of adult industry movers and shakers, the hottest adult stars and a first look at the cutting-edge technology behind some of the most innovative sex toys and novelties on the market today.

AEE is a one-of-a-kind trade show experience that combines business-to-business transactions, networking, knowledge sharing, talent appearances and special presentations for the public. The largest event of its kind, AEE showcases the most comprehensive collection of adult talent, exhibitors and products, and the event attracts buyers and fans from around the world. The 2010 Expo drew more than 20,000 attendees, scores of popular entertainers and hundreds of adult exhibitors.

The first day of the event—Thursday, Jan. 6—is restricted to trade attendees only. Special “trade only” hours on Friday and Saturday will restrict access to media and industry professionals in order to permit exhibitors to make and build business and media contacts before fans are allowed in.

The 2011 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo will run concurrently with the international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on all four days. The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is not affiliated with CES.

The 2011 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo sets the stage for the AVN Awards Show, which will be held at the Palms Resort & Casino, on Saturday, Jan. 8. The annual AVN Awards Show is the premier gala of adult video and recognizes movies, individuals and companies for contributions to and excellence in the industry.

Please note that a separate ticket is required for admission to the AVN Awards Show.
