The four-day event, sponsored by Clips4Sale.com, will be held at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel in St. Petersburg, Fla. Fetish Con describes itself as “the largest networking event for the fetish industry and community on the East Coast.”

“Fetish Con was born from the need and desire to nurture and grow relationships within the fetish industry and community,” said Genesis Lynn, event promoter for Fetish Con. “Our class schedule this year is very diverse, offering a selection of informative classes geared towards the beginner as well as the more experienced within the fetish and alternative lifestyle. Offering business and lifestyle classes, there’s truly something for everyone. We have doubled our classroom space, and we are looking forward to presenting this year’s exciting class schedule.”

“The Fetish Connect: Speed Networking,” sponsored by FetishWork, will be held this Thurs., Aug. 11, as part of the trade show kickoff. FetishWork is also the sponsor for the Fetish Con smoking room.

The Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel is located at 333 First St. South in St Petersburg.
