Adultcon Expands Into Las Vegas Nov. 4-5

LAS VEGAS — Adult consumer and fan tradeshow Adultcon is ready to spread its wings. Parent company Live Entertainment has announced plans to hold a two-day convention in Las Vegas Nov. 4-5 at Bally’s.

Adultcon began in 2001 as an affordable consumer-based tradeshow where fans can meet adult entertainment stars, get autographs and pose for pictures with them and buy adult products.

Live Entertainment flirted with a show in Las Vegas before in November 2005 at the Riviera Hotel. Like that year, Adultcon coincides with the SEMA Show this year, an automotive trade event held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Show organizer Renaud West has high ambitions for a return to sin city and believes the show is much stronger, which is why he’s dipping his toes back in Las Vegas.

“Las Vegas expands our show’s reach to a new audience,” West told XBIZ. “It brings our brand and our fan experience to a new audience and I look forward to that very much.”

West said that the Las Vegas Adultcon would have more of a nightclub vibe to fit in with the city’s seductive atmosphere. The show will feature a full bar, full retail sales and explicit content on the televisions inside the venue.

Admission to Adultcon is $60 for both days. West plans to promote the show via a marquee on Las Vegas Boulevard.
