What our Exhibitors Say
Steve Laliberte, Classic Escapes
Hi Team Erotica,We just wanted to say here at Classic Escapes New Zealand that of all shows that we do throughout the year the Erotica show is by far our most successful both in lead generation and sales. The team is fantastic from start to finish and we would recommend them to any perspective exhibitors.

“At the time we decided to launch, it was not clear we should rush to get Vigel into the erotica expo. Now though, and with hindsight, we are extremely glad we did. With 20,000 people attending Vigel got in front of exactly the kind of audience we needed. Just as importantly people who came to erotica were there to buy and that meant our sales of Vigel were great. Needless to say we’ve already booked to be at erotica expo 2004!”

You can add the following to your testimonials page if you like:
Erotica 2009 was a fantastic experience for all of us from Spookers.
We loved meeting so many different types of people from various ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. All of the consumers looked like they were having a fantastic time and our actors especially loved being able to get up in everyone’s faces and give them a good old fashioned fright.
We will certainly be returning as an exhibitor to Erotica 2010 as it was well worth our while being there, the marketing value was immense and we also sold a lot of merchandise as well.
Thank you Michelle, everything was very well organized by yourself and your team!

getapartybus is a new business to Auckland and being at The Erotica Show this year was huge for us! it really put us on the map we have had untold enquiries and indeed business from the show already.
It was great to have the bus actually in the show and show the people of Auckland what the bus can offer. We found the whole experience with Michelle and organisers easy, well organised and laid back no drama's.
Thanks Sharon and Tommy

Congratulations on another very successful expo....and THANKYOU for raising funds for Clitoraid by auctioning off the posters.
Every dollar counts and it takes us one step closer toward the completion of the hospital in Burkina Faso :-)

Since coming to New Zealand 4 years ago to work the Erotica Expos, we have always traded great at the shows, making many great contacts, customers & friends along the way. The Erotica Expo is one of the best run & handled show that we do over the year. And with little touches like the free water left on your stand daily along with the friendly & enthusiastic management & staff from Erotica the show can’t help to be a big success. We look forward to doing all the shows again this year.

Logan Millar, AHS - 2004
Quite simply the best exhibition type show that we attend annually”- for many reasons. Over the last four years we have found the Erotica Lifestyles Expo to be an enjoyable, profitable and interesting show. All aspects of the event from the erotica staff, security, and show layout are excellent and undertaken professionally. I have personally found Erotica’s best feature to be the atmosphere at ground level within the crowd. No other major show we have ever exhibited at creates an atmosphere anything like Erotica, and compared to other shows I find the three days a pleasure. I highly recommend the Erotica Expo to anybody looking to promote their business, services or products to a wide range of consumers with tremendous spending capability.
Rod Dawson, Stained Skin Tattoo
I would like to say thank you to Sandy and the rest of the erotica team for encouraging us to be apart of erotica 2004. Stained Skin Tattoo had so much fun and also great business over the weekend, tattooing a record number of people over 3 days at the expo. The people we met over the weekend, the Exhibitors and people of the public were exceptional and we are really keen to be apart of it again in ‘05. Thanks again erotica team and we will see you next year.”
Peter Wyatt, Pebbles and Potions
We had a good show, sales up on last year but stall prices down, a good mix of people came thru buying a large range of items, some tyre kickers but lots looking to spend some money. I like the small stand with lots of customer frontage and no wasted space. One customer's comment “I come to a sex show and end up buying a set of swords” but he was very happy with his purchase. Both your staff and security staff were helpful and friendly, even the free bottled water each day was a nice thought that perhaps we were human and not just a monetary re- source to be exploited.
