XOXO Erotica: The Original LGBT Expo Wrap

Du Jour Marketing was pleased to bring XOXO Erotica to NYC for the all new LGBT Expo

Curated by Fang Ling Lee, the newly expanded booth received an incredible outpouring of interest, and support, making this the best showing of XOXO Erotica to date!

The two day LGBT Expo, held at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center is the nation's largest, and longest running event dedicated to the LGBT community.  Under the direction of Life Out Loud Events, the show floor was updated to showcase an expanded entertainment stage, informative seminars, travel, and wedding pavilions, and top of the line vendors from across the country.

The Du Jour Marketing team worked closely with event organizers, and artists to ensure a variety of styles, and themes were represented at the event. This attention to detail, along with the superior quality of our submissions allowed us to bring XOXO Erotica to one of the biggest cities in the world.  

Event organizer Jay Handy commented “Our main goal from the beginning was to maintain the integrity of the 22-year-old event while enhancing and expanding the attendee experience."  As one of over 300 vendors, and companies involved with this year's show, we can say that this goal was realized, and then some!

Team Du Jour At: EXXXOTICA Chicago

The 3rd instalment of the 2014 EXXXOTICA line up, took place in Chicago, IL last week.  The 23rd event in the show's history boasted record breaking attendance, a star studded line up of industry professionals, and a sold-out exhibitor floor.  

The new and improved main stage showcased acts from near, and far, and wowed crowds with it's state of the art sound, light, and video presentations on the brand new 17 X 12 foot screen.  

Meanwhile, specialized rooms on either side of the venue presented informative, sex positive seminars with some of the best known names in the business, including Joanna Angel, Evan Stone, Ron Jeremy, and Nina Hartley.  

The event also saw record numbers interacting, and posting online, leaving Team Du Jour member Tita racing to cover the action online, and on the show floor!  From Tweets, to Facebook uploads, and Instagram updates, she managed the EXXXOTICA social media with a bounce in her step, and a smile on her face.  The newly added hashtag #FindTita kept her in a spotlight of her own as she ran back, and forth from the production office, to the stage, and thru the impressive rows of vendors at the Rosemont Convention Centre.  

Team DuJour is thrilled to be a part of these top of the line trade shows, and is looking forward to the final event of the 2014 season, November 7-9th, in Edison, NJ.

Each year, this "can't miss event" takes place across 7 Canadian cities beginning, with Vancouver.  Not only was this the premiere show of Taboo's 2014 schedule, it also marked the first convention appearance of the year by SuicideGirls, the celebrated website, and pop culture phenomenon, whose headquarters is located in Los Angeles. 

Our very own Tita "Cupcake Du Jour" helmed the popular booth from Thursday to Sunday, with the help of Team Du Jour friend Stormy, who was also an anchor at XOXO Erotica Vancouver, last September.  

The Taboo Naughty but Nice Sex Show prides itself on providing "an upscale adult playground, dedicated to enhancing lifestyles, encouraging romance, personal betterment, and all things Taboo".

This year's show included appearances by fan favourites  The Vancouver Firefighters' charitable society (a.k.a. shirtless firemen), along side industry icons Ron Jeremy, and Alexis Texas.  

Tita has become a fixture on the SuicideGirls convention circuit, and has helped to represent the brand to fans across North America.  Trade shows represent one of the most impactful Business To Consumer platforms in the world, so Tita's time on show room floors continues to give her unique insight into the world of B2C marketing.

All Things SG - XOXO Erotica: The Wrap Up

Chivalry and Philanthropy are alive and well in Vancouver! Last weekend Tita Suicide teamed up with sponsors Lords of Gastown, and HUSH Magazine to host XOXO Erotica, a multi media art show and online extravaganza, designed to celebrate art, and raise awareness about women’s support services.

“Definitely not your run of the mill art show. #XOXOErotica proves that art, love, and the internet can coexisit with the greater good” –@tenimess

The show turned out to be an an outstanding night of music, mixers, and multi media, and the audience showed its appreciation by staying late into the night, sipping on local ales, and dancing, while videos by tmronin and tsurufoto played in the background.

Models and members of the SG community, including AadieGlitchHarajuku ,MeshellPiratePeatrieRin, and Rydell Suicide were on hand to discuss the show’s powerful theme, contribute to charity, and enjoy incredible erotic art and media from across North America.

“Had SO much fun @xoxoerotica. Great to hang with my #Vancouver Suicidegirl friends.  ” – @AlexSevy84

Meanwhile an extended conversation was helped along by remote participants, who joined in online to advocate for erotic art. It was a perfect capsule in which to discuss topics ranging from the importance of nude modelling in the art world, to the NSA and freedom of expression in North America.

“Where are all my #XOXOErotica Vancouver people at? #wishiwereincanada” – @Jherm

With excitement for the next event already building, Tita and curator Fang Ling Lee are headed to New Jersey, where they will host the second round of the show during EXXXOTICA at the Edison Convention Centre, October 4-6th. This time East Coast Suicide Girls and members including FabriziaSpliffKarma, and Lux have been invited to participate, as well as members from across New England. It promises to be a great addition to the already expanded dialogue and social commentary created by the Vancouver show, and will definitely give the internet something to talk and post about!

Check out the full event photos in the official Facebook albums of Du Jour Marketing and HUSH Magazine. As always, you can keep plugged into the event by watching for the hashtag #XOXOErotica and following @cupcakedujour‪, @DuJourMarketing and @xoxoerotica online.
