XBizâ€™s trade event, XBizLA, focuses on digital media and technologyâ€™s impact on adult entertainment and BtoB (business-to-business) networking relationships. Consequently, XBizâ€™s wintertime mad/fun-ness is geared toward professional members of the adult industry.
AVNâ€™s Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) has a slightly wider trade scope, focusing on more general aspects of the adult production business. Additionally, AVNâ€™s trade show has fan days and fans are able to attend the awards show (!!), making it AEE a relatively “public” event.
Why does all this matter?
Well, I just returned to the ATX after giving thanks in LA with my family, and man-oh-man was my mailbox full of fun awards-related items when I got home!!Â I had a super interesting story planned for today, but I got distracted by the resultant mountain of pending awesome (and revamping the site â€“ do you like it?!).
Anyway, I imagine I’ll be talking some about these two shows over the next few months – I just wanted to give youÂ a mini-low down in the meantime.Â Off to continue sorting!!
