What is SEXPO?

SEXPO – Health, Sexuality and Lifestyle Exhibition is the world’s longest-running adult exhibition and is designed to provide a fun and vibrant atmosphere for all adults.
SEXPO is not just about sex, it’s about fun and the celebration of all lifestyles and sexualities.

At SEXPO you’ll find hundreds of exhibitors, and there’s something for everyone. If you’re looking for that fun, different or special gift for a friend or loved one, you sure to find it at SEXPO.

Entertainment: The entertainment is second to none, with international performers, male and female stage acts, comedy hypnotists, fetish demonstrations and lots of audience participation, including the world famous Amateur Strip competition!

The Party: Come along to party in any of several lounge bars, including the All Male Review, or upgrade your ticket and get exclusive access to the VIP bar right next to the stage, with an uninterrupted view of all the action.

SEXPO provides all their patrons with the opportunity to mix in a bit of shopping and socialising with world class entertainment – what better way to spend a day out with your friends or partner?

We specifically invite people who have never been to SEXPO, thinking it is just a big “sex show,” to come along and be pleasantly surprised by the fun and relaxed atmosphere.


SEXPO was conceived in 1995 in Melbourne, Australia, and is the longest-running adult consumer exhibition in the world. It is also one of the largest exhibitions in Australia, having drawn crowds of over 2.5 million people throughout its 20 year history.

The aim of the first SEXPO show was simple; bring adult products out of adult stores and present them to the public (and women in particular) in a comfortable and fun atmosphere.

The first SEXPO was held at the Carlton Crest Hotel in Albert Park, Victoria, in October 1996, with an attendance of just over 5,500 people. The following year, SEXPO moved to the venue it would call home for the next two decades, the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, and drew a crowd of almost 40,000 people.

Since these auspicious beginnings, SEXPO has gone from strength to strength, staging exhibitions in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, Gold Coast and Townsville. In 2007, the first international SEXPO was held in Johannesburg, South Africa, and in late 2015, SEXPO had its inaugural London show.

Join SEXPO in 2016 to honour this magnificent success story, as they celebrate their 20th Anniversary!


SEXPO offers a huge retail area where you can shop until your heart’s content. Show bags, toys, health & beauty products, and much, much more!
