Amid tough times, the industry’s largest convention, the Adult Video Network’s Adult Entertainment Expo, hits Las Vegas today with steady fan attendance and a host of challenges on the exhibit floor.
AVN’s four-day expo is expected to lure adult stars, about 25,000 visitors and 250-plus exhibitors showcasing the latest in adult novelties, DVDs and technology.
