AVN has always honored the best talents in the adult entertainment industry. The event dates back to 1986 when it started with 30 persons in a basement room in Chicago. However, the scenario quickly changes when AVN decided to shift base to Las Vegas. Las Vegas was emerging as the hub of the adult entertainment industry and AVN spotted the trend really quickly by switching to Las Vegas.
AVN has transformed over the years. The show continued at the Tropicana for a span of 6 years with an attendance of 1,500, and then it was taken to Bally’s in 1992 which saw a rise of attendance to 2,500 people. In 1996, the show returned to Aladdin which was also the year of its first TV appearance. From Aladdin the show was taken to Riviera and back to Bally’s for another six year stint. The show was moved to Palms in 2007 which witnessed an attendance of 6000 fans. From 2012 the show has been hosted at the Hard Rock with attendance soaring year on year.
Talent agencies across America are flying more than 300 porn stars to the event. The names are listed alphabetically to cut confusion. Steve Orenstein, winner of the 2014 visionary award has been entrusted with the responsibility of hosting the convention activities along with Jeeica Drake and Asa Akira, Samantha Saint, Stormy Daniels and Kaylani Lei at the Penthouse Suite.
The event has attracted the attention of Global Media. Request of participation from 25 countries media was placed but unfortunately more than 500 applications for media coverage had to be rejected.
