Fetish Con Announces Dates & Location For 2018 Fest

ST. PETERSBURG, FLFetish Con arrives almost exactly one month from today, so fetish fans are advised to mark their calendars for the 18th annual fetish industry and community trade show. Sponsored by Clips4Sale, the largest networking event for the fetish industry and community on the East Coast will take place August 9–12 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

“Our 18th year is bringing some exciting new features, including a packed B2B seminar schedule on Thursday, expanded vendor and exhibitor space, and the third Annual Fetish Awards,” stated event promoter Genesis Lynn. “Our 18th year has seen an explosion of interest in the show, and we’ve worked hard to pack the schedule with more events, such as our Kinky Classes, and activities for both industry members and general attendees over the entire weekend.”

As Fetish Con enters another year as the premier fetish event in the United States, organizers are pleased to announce that this year’s trade show will again be held at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel, located at 333 First St. South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. As only registered Fetish Con attendees are allowed to book a room at the Hilton for the dates of the trade show, and since many booked immediately after last year’s event, the host hotel is already sold out. Alternate local lodging options have been arranged; in addition, a free shuttle service sponsored by Clips4Sale to the host hotel has been coordinated for attendees from those hotels.

Fetish Con organizers are also happy (and a bit sad) to announce that not only is its host hotel booked to maximum capacity, vendor, model, and exhibitor booths are also sold out for the trade show.

With Kinky Classes, private Twisted Dungeon/play space, live fetish shows, after dark parties, and the famous "Pervy Pool Party that never stops," Fetish Con has grown to be an internationally recognized event within the fetish industry and community. The event brings in thousands of fetish performers, production companies, and kinksters together for what is expected to be an unforgettable four-day weekend.

“We’re thrilled that Fetish Con continues to be so well received by the city and the local community. So much so, that we have been offered a new three-year contract, and we’re excited to announce that St. Petersburg and the Hilton will be our home through our 20th anniversary in 2020, and up until at least 2021,” noted Genesis Lynn. “It’s an exciting time, as the trade show is gearing up to kick off in just a couple weeks and the buzz online has everyone excited about our action-packed schedule of events.”

With a long successful history, Fetish Con brought in over 8,000 attendees last year, with over 300 models and 70 vendors on hand to meet with fans and consumers. All-access passes for the 4-day weekend are still available; to register, click here. Single-day wristbands are also available here. All Fetish Con events are restricted to those 18 years of age and over; all trade show events, with the exception of sanctioned off-site after-hours parties, will be taking place at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront over the course of the four-day event.

Additional information on parties, classes and events will be made available as the trade show draws near. To keep up-to-date with Fetish Con news, visit FetishCon.com, or follow the trade show on Twitter, on Facebook, and on Tumblr.
