MIAMI — Exxxotica Miami Beach wrapped up its third year last weekend, and organizers announced that this was their biggest year ever.

This year's show, sponsored by HotMovies.com, was held at the Miami Beach Convention Center in South Beach and saw over 22,000 fans of the adult industry pack the show.

Each day of the three-day adult consumer show showed growth and improvement from the numbers of the past two years, with an overall increase of attendees of close to 30 percent from last year's numbers.

Highlights of the show included the show's massive “Fantasy Island” booth (sponsored by Genesis magazine), which hosted such adult stars as Jesse Jane, Stormy Daniels, Jenna Haze, Eva Angelina, Bree Olson, Kayden Kross, Roxy DeVille, Moxxie Maddron, Joanna Angel, Nautica Thorn, Lisa Sparxxx and Donna Doll.

Many of the stars completely sold out of their DVDs and photos that fans lined up to purchase.

"There's nothing I enjoy more than meeting my fans,” Jane said. “Exxxotica Miami brought in thousands of them. It was one of the best shows ever, and I will definitely be back next year.”

"I personally have to give a shout out to everyone that made this event happen," Angelina said. "I had a lot of fun. The fans were great to me — as always — and it was a positive experience. I'd love to do it all again."

Other stars exhibiting and attending the show included fan favorite Tera Patrick, who brought along gal pals Sasha Grey and Charmane Star. Gina Lynn was signing at a booth for her production company, and Belladonna was signing at the Evil Angel booth. IVD's “Girls Gone Wild” booth featured visits from Brianna Love, Roxy Reynolds, Persia, Shayla Hayes and Carmen Hayes.

Also seen in attendance were Tommy Gunn, Lee Stone, Ashlynn Brooke, Lexi Love, Zoe Britton, Nikki Rhodes and Lexi Lamour.

Two of the stars weren't even human.

Gina Lynn's monster truck attracted a ton of fans, as did the infamous Bang Bus, which left the show floor with its newest star ready to shoot an Exxxotica Miami scene.

Bang Brothers weren't the only new exhibitors to this year's show who were thrilled with the turnout. Other first time-exhibitors included Evil Angel and distributor IVD — both promoting their various lines.

Previous attendees were equally excited about the turnout this year.

"This was our second year attending and exhibiting, and it was easily the best," Genesis magazine editor Dan Davis said. "Our 'Fantasy Island' booth had never-ending lines, and we feel that we not only gained new readers for our magazine, but were also able to solidify business relationships as well."

Fans enjoyed a nonstop schedule of excitement, which included the Pillow Fight League, Tattoo Alley, the Ms. Exxxotica pageant, dance shows, professional wrestling matches and an all-star panel of adult's biggest names answering questions from audience members.

The show also included the first-ever Ammy Awards which celebrated amateur submissions to XTube.com. The event was cohosted by Gina Lynn and Travis Knight.

J. Handy of Victory Tradeshow Management (the company who produced the Exxxotica Miami Beach show) summed the weekend up best.

"We are here to celebrate sexy, and that's exactly what the show does,” Handy said. “We are ecstatic that our exhibitors and attendees had an amazing time at this year's show and we can only promise to improve and grow for many years to come."

The 2009 Exxxotica Miami Beach show will take place May 8-10, 2009.
