(MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA) -- Now it's Brisbane's Turn - and Maybe the USA! Three-Quarters of a Million Visit Sexpo - a record crowd of 75,000 visited the Club X Sexpo, staged at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, Clarendon Street, Southbank from Thursday November 21 to Sunday November 24 2002.
During the course of the event, the number of people to have visited Sexpo around Australia - since its debut in 1996 - surpassed three-quarters-of-a-million people.
Attention now swings to Brisbane, which will host the event from February 27 to March 2, 2003. A record local crowd in excess of 50,000 is expected.
Moves To Take Sexpo To the US - Organisers of the most successful adult lifestyle exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere are considering taking the Sexpo experience to the US market. "While we are already having meaningful discussions with one group, we are interested in speaking with any US based company that is interested in drawing on our substantial experience regarding the unique 'Lifestyle' show. We would be happy to speak to others that may be interested in being part of the Sexpo (trademarked) Phenomenon," says Sexpo founder and organiser, David Ross.
2003 Dates - Sexpo is set to visit 4 Capital Cities around Australia this year:
Brisbane, Australia. Feb 27 - March 2, 2003.
Perth, Australia. April 10 -13, 2003.
Sydney, Australia. July 31 - Aug 3, 2003.
Melbourne, Australia. Nov 27 - 30, 2003.
Word's Biggest Porn Star At Sexpo - the world's most famous porn star, Ron Jeremy, met his Australian fans at Melbourne Sexpo.
The subject of an internationally acclaimed film about his life, Jeremy was joined by leading female adult film stars, including Serenity and Jacklyn Lick.
The Female Factor - Sexpo originally began as a comfortable environment for women to purchase sex toys and erotica and has since established itself as Australia's busiest public exhibition, visiting an average four major cities a year.
40-percent of Sexpo visitors are female, and the opening day is traditionally Ladies' Day, with any female visitor receiving a special gift on arrival and being treated to extra male entertainment on stage. The professional childcare service is free on this day. It should be noted that men are also welcome to attend Sexpo on Ladies' Day, although most of the stage performances are aimed at entertaining the female visitors.
Sex Sells - Sexpo has expanded to accommodate the full spectrum of 'adult lifestyles', with exhibitors including wineries, spa manufacturers, holiday operators, photographers, herbalists and Pay TV operators.
Sexpo caters for everything from sex to sunglasses and shoes. If it's adult, it's at Sexpo!
Mr Sexpo - Former motor mechanic, David Ross, is the creator and organiser of the Sexpo phenomenon.
A car accident led to a radical career change, which saw David applying his entrepreneurial skills to the sex industry. From brothel owner to a sex industry crusader, Ross has long recognised the event's 'universal appeal' and its marketing potential.
Child Minding - While Sexpo is only open to people aged over 18, a professional child minding service is available while parents go inside.
