EDISON, N.J. — Exxxotica New Jersey wrapped its Garden State fan expo last weekend at the New Jersey Expo and Convention Center, with a show-stopping appearance by adult legend Jenna Jameson.
The event’s operators said for the sixth straight year, more than 20,000 attendees hit the show floor.
Exxxotica treated fans to stage shows, seminars, after parties and an A-list lineup of more than 150 adult stars including legends Jameson and Ron Jeremy.
The show marked Jameson’s first-ever appearance in New Jersey, according to the event's operators, with hundreds of fans lining up hours in advance of her scheduled signing time. Exxxotica official said the star’s appearance called for extra security, as a chance to meet the superstar has been so rare.
Other stars including Asa Akira, Lisa Ann, Jessica Drake, Stormy Daniels, Tori Black, Allie Haze, Lexi Belle, Tasha Reign and more, along with mainstream gossip page fixtures “Tan Mom” and “Weinergate” centerpiece, Sydney Leathers were also in attendance.
Exxxotica said more than 100 exhibitors showcased their products, many reporting record sales. New companies expressed their desire to return to future N.J. shows due in large part to an increased attendance that officials said rose just over 10 percent from last year’s event.
Exxxotica New Jersey was the fourth and final show of 2013 for the producers, Three Expo Events, who said they also saw record-setting shows in Chicago and Fort Lauderdale, as well as the launch of Exxxotica Atlantic City this past April.
“This was an incredible year for Exxxotica,” J. Handy, the expo’s director and creator, said. “With our Atlantic City launch, a successful move from Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale and increased attendance in Chicago and Edison this year, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you to all of the fans, stars and companies for your support this year, and we promise to continue making Exxxotica bigger and better for years to come. 2014 is going to be epic.”
Exxxotica Atlantic City will be returning to the Trump Taj Mahal Casino and Hotel, April 11-13, 2014 that promises major developments and enhancements to be announced in the coming weeks and months.
