MELBOURNE, Australia — Four of the largest adult companies in Australia have joined forces to create a new B2B show called The Australian Adult Expo that will be held at Sexpo on Nov. 30 in Melbourne.
The founders of the new annual show are Claredale Distributors, Windsor Wholesale, The Eros Foundation and Sexpo.
Organizers said that with the participation of other major wholesalers and distributors, The Australian Adult Expo is expected to be the largest of its kind in the country.
The one-day expo will include free seminars on new product releases, issues affecting the industry, and keynote speakers. Ron Jeremy and Alexis Texas, who recently signed an exclusive deal with Adam & Eve, will be making guest appearances.
Ozzy Sarman, general manager of Claredale Distributors, remarked, "Claredale Distributors is delighted to be a founding member of the first Australian Adult Expo. This will be the premier annual B2B show for Australia and we look forward to presenting the new lines from our key brands such as Pipedream, Topco, La Viva and many more."
Fiona Patten of the Eros Foundation said, "This event recognizes the maturity of our industry and is a perfect complement to the Eros Shine Awards that will be held the night before to recognize excellence, innovation and professionalism in this ever changing and growing industry."
David Watts, general manager of Windsor Wholesale, agreed.
"Windsor Wholesale Australasia (WWA) are very proud and excited to be participating in the country's first official Australian Adult Expo," Watts said. "To celebrate Windsor Wholesale will be introducing new brands at the show and presenting product seminars featuring Swiss Navy Lubricants, Evolved Novelties, Zero Tolerance, Classic Erotica and many more, plus a chance for our clients to win a trip for two to the USA."
The Australian Adult Expo will coincide with the Eros Shine Awards, which will be held on the night of Nov. 29, and top adult lifestyle show, Sexpo, which goes from Nov. 30-Dec. 2 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
