AEE breaks up with CES, Venetian

Whipping it off the Strip this year.

After last year’s kind of stale and shrunk-in-size Adult Entertainment Expo, the porn convention is moving not only to a new venue, but to a new weekend.

This January 18 to 21 — well after CES — AEE and the AVN Novelty Expo will move to the Palms, where the AVN Awards have taken place the last two years. Instead of running with CES, AEE will overlap with SHOT. Trading computer nerds for hunters seems like a push in terms of fervent love of porn, though SHOT is considerably smaller. We suspect there’s more than a few CES attendees ragequitting from the convention now.
