We’re a mere week away from the largest event for the adult entertainment industry— AVN Week!
This spectacle takes place in Las Vegas every year, and for the past several years, has been hosted at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
WHAT IS AVN WEEK?
The AVN’s are divided up into different segments.
There is Internext at the beginning of the week, which is a show that is dedicated to Business-to-Business (B2B) networking and workshops. Here, you will find companies and reps that handle much of the back-end and business side of our industry: billing, web hosting, traffic, advertising, webmasters, affiliates, studios, production houses, talent agencies, etc.
There is ANE (Adult Novelty Expo) and AEE (Adult Entertainment Expo), which are the main front-facing events for adult novelty companies, talent, film producers, cam companies, agencies, content makers, and everything in between to exhibit and interact with the public. There are also workshops and panels open to attendees and exhibitors.
Finally, the week is capped off with the actual AVN Awards Show on Saturday- a star-studded red carpet event that has been referred to as “the Oscars of Porn.”
WHAT DOES AVN HAVE TO DO WITH STREAMATE?
You may think, what does this have to do with Streamate? So, Streamate does, or has done, business with a good many companies and people that attend AVN Week: they’ve been brought into the SM fold whether directly or indirectly, from billing to traffic, studios, affiliates, talent, and so on. This show goes far beyond exhibiting. It’s about networking- building new relationships and maintaining existing ones. That said, it’s a pretty robust agenda that most people are looking forward to. And this is before mentioning any of the parties and social events!
What’s Streamate’s main involvement for the 2018 show?
For AEE, Streamate is teaming up with our partners, Cherry Pimps and Pornstars.com (both powered by Streamate), in a row of exhibit space located inside of The Joint. Both of our partners will have talent signing from their respective rosters. For this year, Streamate is introducing a different concept to the show: a live “interview couch,” where we will be hosting candid chats with talent, companies, and show go’ers direct from the show floor. You can watch our activity daily as we stream onto our Youtube and Periscope channels. Our team will also be capturing the action on all of our other social platforms. If you’ll be attending the show, swing by BOOTH 2300 and say hello!

Streamate Model Appreciation Party
Streamate will be hosting our 3rd annual Streamate Model Appreciation Party. The venue this year is the Night Owl Showroom (inside of the Hooters Hotel and Casino, 115 E. Tropicana Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89109). The party kicks off at 10pm and goes through 2am…’ish. You must have a ticket to enter. As of this date, all tickets have been reserved. If you’re a model or potential model that is looking to attend but didn’t get a ticket in time, stop by our booth during AVN Week or send me a private message- we will have a limited number of extra tickets on hand. 😉
We hope to see some new and old faces in Vegas next week! If you’re watching from home, keep an eye on our social media feeds to get a better idea of just how exciting (and crazy) this week really is!
Cheers to a successful show!
