From Feb. 9-11, the XBIZ Retail Expo is set to draw buyers representing more than 650 retail operations. The expo’s exhibiting hall was expanded to include suites on the hotel’s 10th floor, to accommodate a growing amount of the industry’s top manufacturers, which will showcase their latest and greatest product releases.

The XBIZ Retail Expo also features a full schedule of informative seminars and panels led by the industry’s heavyweights, including a special keynote session featuring Hustler founder Larry Flynt with Mark Franks of Castle Megastore serving as the session’s Q&A host.

“The XBIZ Retail Expo marks a milestone for XBIZ’s growing event product line and for the adult industry in general, whose expressed need for a pure adult retail B2B show inspired its launch,” XBIZ President and Publisher Alec Helmy said. “We’ve incorporated and refined the elements of XBIZ’s standard-setting formula for B2B events to best serve the adult retail community. The debut of XBIZ Retail Expo will without doubt set a new standard.”

Additionally, the input from the XBIZ Retail Expo & Conference Advisory Board, consisting of the industry’s most esteemed adult retail professionals, was carefully integrated to achieve the most relevant line-up of retail-focused sessions, Helmy said.

XBIZ Retail Expo 2011 kicks off with the 9th annual XBIZ Awards, the industry’s biggest business awards show, held on Feb. 9 at the legendary Hollywood Palladium.

Retailers from all sectors of the industry, including e-tailers, home party organizers, wholesalers and manufactures, are invited to attend to the XBIZ Retail Expo, which provides vital knowledge and tools that set the stage for success in the New Year and beyond.
