(MIAMI, FL) -- Exxxotica Miami Beach 2008 (presented by HotMovies.com) wrapped up its third year this weekend, and with the counts in, organizers are thrilled to announce that this was their biggest year ever.
This year's show, which ran at the Miami Beach Convention Center in South Beach from Friday, April 18th to Sunday, April 20th, saw over 22,000 fans of the adult industry pack into 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% from last year's numbers.
Highlights of the show included the show's massive ''Fantasy Island'' booth which was sponsored by Genesis Magazine, and that 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 the fans lined up to purchase from a virtual who's who of porn.
''There's nothing I enjoy more than meeting my fans and Exxxotica Miami brought in thousands of them,'' Jesse Jane said about the event. ''it was one of the best shows ever and I will definitely be back next year. Thank you to the show's organizers, Genesis, who sponsored the booth, and everyone who came out to meet me. I love y'all.''
''I personally have to give a shout out to everyone that made this event happen,'' said Eva Angelina. ''I had a lot of fun, the fans were great to me as always, it was a positive experience and I'd love to do it all again.''
Other stars exhibiting and attending the show included the always-stunning 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 much to the delight of the Miami Beach crowd. And IVD's Girls Gone Wild booth featured visits from Brianna Love, Roxy Reynolds, Persia, Shayla Hayes and Carmen Hayes. Also seen in attendance were such stars as Tommy Gunn, Lee Stone, Ashlynn Brooke, Lexi Love, Zoe Britton, Nikki Rhodes and Lexi Lamour.
It was also shown that stars come in all shapes and sizes, and two of the stars weren't even in the human form. 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 major first time exhibitors included Evil Angel and distribution giants, Ivd who were promoting their various lines. For those who had attended the show in the prior two years, they were equally excited about the turnout this year.
''This was our second year attending and exhibiting at Exxxotica and it was easily the best,'' said Dan Davis, Editor of Genesis Magazine. ''Our 'Fantasy Island' booth had non-stop lines and we feel that we not only gained new readers for our magazine, but also were able to solidify business relationships as well.''
Fans enjoyed a non-stop 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 and was hosted by Gina Lynn and Travis Knight.
J. Handy of Victory Tradeshow Management, who are the producers of Exxxotica Miami Beach, summed the weekend up best. ''We are here to celebrate sexy, and that's exactly what the show does. We are ecstatic 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.''
