Having left early to head off to London for the inaugural Sexpo UK 2015 visit to Olympia, it was encouraging to see a queue had already formed as the doors opened.
Sexpo was aimed at the public and billed as the ‘world’s biggest sexual health and lifestyle expo’. With the external factors occurring in France, it was no wonder the visitor numbers were down but an impressive 10,000 attended over the weekend, according to organisers Carnal Creative.
We certainly enjoyed our experience with many exhibitors and product stands, stage acts, bars and informative seminars covering all aspects of the industry. The Metro published an interesting article on “14 things you won’t believe I saw this weekend” which explained a lot from a visitors point of view.
We met many of our old and existing clients and were introduced to a number of very interesting parties. There were many thought provoking conversations had which we all hope will flourish into either new or evolving product developments.
Of particular note, William from Doxy Massager was busy being well received alongside the exquisite and well produced Lovearc. An interesting conversation was had with Neil from Luvsense who explained his product with great passion and belief. Amongst others, Jason from adultxfunding will certainly have been kept busy by visitors with potential new sex toy ideas. The enthusiastic Adam from Godemiche, with his hand-poured silicone products, shows great potential to thrive.
Adam from Hot Octopuss was showing the excellent and award winning Pulse Solo and Pulse Duo sex toys on his slick and well-presented stand.
Sexpo would not be complete without a mention of Pricasso who was being commissioned and completing portraits using everything but his hands. He was stood proud, donned with only his big pink hat, painting away. And last but not least, the pups from Puppy Pride UK were busy being fed and playing in their petting zoo.
Unfortunately, we had to head off early for another client meeting elsewhere in London, so missed out catching up with yet more people. Sated Design are confident the event will be even bigger and better next year.
