The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) is an adult entertainment convention and trade show held each January in Las Vegas, Nevada and is sponsored by AVN magazine. The AEE is the largest pornography industry trade show in the United States.[1] The 2007 AVN Expo had over 30,000 attendees, which included 355 exhibiting companies.[2]

The AEE is a four-day show which mixes industry-only events with open hours for fans seeking autographs, photo opportunities and memorabilia. The first two days are "Trade Only" (with access limited to people in the adult industry), and the remainder of the show includes open hours for fans. One of the major aspects of the AEE is that most of the major adult entertainment stars make appearances. The AVN Awards are presented on the show's closing night.


Until 2012, the AEE was usually held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center concurrently with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). In 2012, the AEE was held at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on January 18–21, one week after the 2012 CES[3] to help exhibitors minimize travel expenses and maximize networking opportunities.[4]

In 2013, the 15th annual AEE was again held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas,[5] and the 2014 AEE was held January 15-18 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, as was the 2015 AEE[6]


The 1998 AEE and Awards are the subject of David Foster Wallace's article "Neither Adult nor Entertainment", published in Premiere, and later reprinted and extended as "Big Red Son", the first essay of his collection Consider the Lobster.[7]
