The ETO Show in Birmingham, England, has been an integral part of the European erotic industry since 2005. The organizers have opted for the fair not to be held this year for various reasons. This decision was announced on 21 March in the online edition of ETO Magazine. The reasons are the high cost for the exhibiting companies as well as the economic uncertainties of Brexit. The organizers said that also plans to start this year with a new trade-show concept have been rejected. It remains to be seen how the event will continue.
“The EAN team regrets the decision to cancel the traditional ETO show deeply, but we can fully understand the reasons,” explains Randolph Heil, EAN editor. “We have been accompanying the ETO Show as an exhibitor and media partner over the years and have always had a very friendly and very professional relationship with Jonny Kirk and his team. The ETO Show always gave us a perfect platform to get in touch with the British erotic market. Let’s hope the best for 2018!”
