The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo comes to the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas next week, January 24 – 27. Approximately 30,000 attendees are expected, including some 500+ adult film stars.
Most of the porn world, including its greatest megastars, will be available in the exhibit areas at one time or another next week, signing autographs and posing for pics with fans. The exhibits usually run the gamut from adult film company booths pushing their latest hits to virtual reality demos, cam girl booths, and sex toy displays, as well as every kind of seminar and class you can imagine, from bondage demonstrations, classes on anal, panel discussions on how to break into porn, and more.
We’ve covered this event for the past three years and we’ll be reporting from the convention again this year, with plenty of photos. If you haven’t been to an AVN Expo, the best way to get a feel for what to expect is to look at our coverage of the previous three Expos:

Throughout AVN week, the Vegas strip clubs will be featuring porn stars on stage at night, and those shows tend to attract lots of other porn stars to the audience. Check out our post on porn star appearances at Sapphire during AVN 2018.
There will even be a porn star stand-up comedy show on Thursday, January 25 from 7-9 pm at Sapphire Las Vegas. This show was hilarious last year, featuring Ron Jeremy, Evan Stone, Nina Hartley, Rebecca Love, Kurt Lockwood, Kyle Stone, and Sasha Heart all joking about their experiences in the XXX world. I’ll post a complete listing of who’s appearing at all the Vegas strip clubs next week.
