German shows go head to head

Posted: November 4, 2010

Adult shows Venus and eroFame went head to head in Germany last month and although attendance figures were not available at the time of going to press it’s likely both could claim to have ‘won’ – both were bustling with visitors on their first days.

eroFame took place from October 20th – 22nd at the Metropolis Halle on the grounds of the Filmpark Babelsberg while Venus ran from October 21st – 24th at its usual home, the fairground under the radio tower in Berlin.

Venus catered for both consumers and trade visitors while eroFame was dedicated to the trade. One of the key attractions at Venus was Baci Lingerie but eroFame had most of the European industry’s big names – including Scala, Orion, ST Rubber, Shots Media and ABS – in its corner. A few exhibitors hedged their bets by having stands at both shows – Digital Playground was one, but it promoted its Pirates range of toys at eroFame and its films at Venus.
