The dates for the upcoming AVN wards show isn’t the only thing that is changing this year. It seems the location is as well and this year the AVN show will be at the Hard Rock. The full story from AVN is below however I should note that the reservations link they provide doesn’t seem to show any available rooms so either that is a mistake or they sold out that quick. Surely they haven’t already sold out 5 months in advance, so my suggestion is you call the Hard Rock directly.
The dates for the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), Adult Novelty Expo (ANE) and the AVN Awards will remain January 18-21, 2012, but the venue is changing to the hip and happening Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The trio of events at the Hard Rock gives attendees a bigger space to mix business with pleasure. The hotel has more meeting space and gives customers more flexibility with suites, meeting rooms and exhibits.
AEE runs January 18–21, ANE takes place January 18–20 and the must-attend AVN Awards will be Saturday, January 21 at The Joint, a world-class concert venue inside the Hard Rock. Internext also will be taking place at the Hard Rock, January 15-17.
The format of the show will be familiar to past attendees, but with some fresh twists that add value for both the industry professional and the consumer. AEE and ANE includes traditional exhibits, meeting rooms, exhibit suites, more networking events, more parties, more product demos and more educational components.
The change of venue also affords attendees a substantial discount on room rates at the hippest hotel in Sin City. The Hard Rock is offering rooms from $99 (Sunday-Thursday) and $179 (Friday/Saturday). To book your accommodations, click here.
In the coming weeks and months, look for more exciting announcements on AdultEntertainmentExpo.com about the January 2012 events, including the registration website, which will be live by mid-September.
The AVN Awards, the showpiece of the adult entertainment industry, is set to rock The Joint on Jan. 21. The Joint is a sleek and upscale 4,000-seat showroom that has the reputation as one of the most sophisticated and authentic venues in Las Vegas.
The new venue will have tables for industry attendees interested in purchasing them. For more information, contact Bonnie LeBlanc at email@example.com. Information about submitting pre-nominations will be forthcoming.
