Adult industry professionals and trade reps
Uniting 1,500+ invited guests from across the adult industry, the XBIZ trade show is one of the largest events of its kind in the USA.

- Performers in Focus
- Women in Adult
- Paysite Biz
- VR/AR in Focus
- Gay Market Watch
- Trans Trends
- Other important core elements of the show include the Talent Track where performers get to find out about new opportunities plus the FSC (Free Speech Coalition) Summit.
It’s a must visit event for anyone involved in the adult industry including the talent as well as webmasters, affiliates and even fans.
Everything To Do With Sex Show (Montreal) 2019
Place Bonaventure, 800 De La Gauchetière St. W. #240, Montreal, QC H5A 1K6, Canada
18-20 January 2019
A part of the Taboo Show schedule of events that takes place across Canada, the Everything to Do With Sex Show is a celebration of a sex-positive lifestyle with entertainment, seminars and unique shopping opportunities.
A ‘can’t-miss’ event, this ‘upscale’ playground takes place over three days before moving on to set-up in another city (see Taboo Show Naughty but Nice Sex Show, Vancouver below).
It’s a big event with plenty of big name exhibitors including We-Vibe, SDC Media, Fantasia and Canada’s Toy Box but is not really a networking opportunity. It is useful for end-users and supply chain professionals as well as the general public.
