TAMPA, Fla. — Fetish Con has announced dates and schedules for its 14th annual fetish industry and community trade show.

Returning to the Hilton Tampa Downtown in Florida and sponsored by Clips4Sale, the leading networking event for the fetish industry and community on the East Coast will run August 7–10.

“We can’t believe we are about to kick off our 14th Fetish Con,” Event Promoter Genesis Lynn said. “As cliche as it sounds, it feels like just yesterday we were organizing our very first event back in 2001. All of us — Vesta, Mike and I — get more excited about the show each year. We look forward to bringing both new and experienced industry members together, as well as offering an exciting event for the local fetish community, fans and first time attendees.”

Fetish Con features classes, a private dungeon, live fetish shows, an art gallery, after-hour parties and a continuous "pervy pool party."

This year, the dungeon/play space hours have been extended all weekend, allowing attendees the flexibility to enjoy private play as well as visit classes, workshops, and booths on the trade show floor, promoters said in a release.

The Fan Photo Shoot, where models will be bound and gagged for a photo shoot blitz by fans, will also be returning for its fourteenth year. In addition, the 9th Annual Super Heroine Showdown will again be hosted by writer and illustrator George Perez of Avengers/Teen Titans/Wonder Woman fame, for a “cosplay-meets-bondage” show on the main stage.

“Fetish Con 2014 has so many new and exciting events that will debut this year, we cannot wait to unveil them,” Lynn added. “Industry attendees can participate in a free B2B event, called The Fetish Connect — registered models and producers are invited to take part in this intensive one-on-one speed networking session. During this event, attendees will be able to put a face to a name and exchange business cards and contact information while at Fetish Con.”

Lynn added that this year will also see the advent of the Kinky [RED] Carpet to kick off the trade show. The “pervy paparazzi” will be snapping photos of attendees, models and special guests. The event will be streamed live on FetishCon.com along with real-time photo updates on Instagram here.

Fetish Con reps say that the event drew 7,500 attendees last year, with around 200 models and 60 vendors.

Registration is open and attendees can purchase tickets here.

Additional information on classes and events will be made available as the trade show dates draw near.
