AVN Show 2016 at Hard Rock Delights Fans
The AVN Show, held yearly in Las Vegas, is the only event in the adult industry that combines business and pleasure. It includes adult studios, performers, pleasure product manufacturers and distributors, fans and more under one roof. It is a unique gathering for those in the industry and for the fans that support it. More than 500 performers attend and make themselves available to meet thousands of their fans and sign autographs.

There's a upbeat party atmosphere as fans roam the exhibition rooms at the Hard Rock Resort and Casino with souvenir bags picking up pens, pictures, videos, and other remembrances of their visit to this unique expo. Visit the AVN and you'll see lines of fans waiting to take a photo with their favorite performers and get a personally autographed picture as well. The products displayed are not what you'll find in your local grocery or department store, but there is a huge segment of the population that embraces and supports this legal tax paying industry.

I've been covering this event for many years now and as one vendor described it, “It's like a camp reunion of friends we see once a year.” Yes, it does feel like that. Hope you enjoy taking a look – from a distance – of my photos and videos of my visit to the 2016 AVN.
