LOS ANGELES — Adultcon 16 surpassed all previous attendance records of adult stars with more than 70 appearing at last weekend’s event, its organizers said Tuesday.

Adultcon also said 10,000 adult entertainment fans showed up at the Los Angeles Convention Center Saturday and Sunday.

LA Direct Models brought a stable of stars to sign in its booth, including Kagney Linn Karter, Sienna West, Ashli Orion, Alanah Rae and Ahryan Astyn.

“Brandon Iron shared a booth with Nicole Rey; Tom Byron shared a booth with Sunny Lane; and Alysse Reece, Louisa Lanewood, Eric John and Jessica Bangkok all shared a booth,” a company rep said. “James Bartholet of Galaxy Publicity had a booth with LA Direct models Daisy Marie Yurizan Beltran and Regan Reese.”

Sunny Leone, represented by LA Direct Models, was in the Cam Z booth.

Even longtime performer Aria Giovanni made an appearance after a seven-year hiatus.

Organizers already are getting prepared for Adultcon 17, which is slated Oct. 2-4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The show is billed as “where fans go to buy autographs, photos, DVDs and products and meet the porn stars of tomorrow as well as the mega stars of today.”

The fans — mostly male — who pay $35 admission and are offered the opportunity to meet talent up-close and personal in a 60,000-square-feet hall. The show does not allow nudity, but porn stars usually expose copious amounts of skin and use pasties to cover areolas.
