AVN Awards Launch Event and Party at the Palms Announced

LOS ANGELES—AVN Media Network and the 9Group have announced that they will team up with the Palms Casino Resort for a pre-AVN Awards Show party and press event June 4-6 in Las Vegas.

AVN has invited more than 15 of the top adult performers in the world to party with their friends and fans at the Palms, the official home of the annual AVN Awards Show. The lineup of hostesses for the weekend includes numerous AVN award-winners, former hosts and gorgeous contract stars. Among the girls already confirmed are Jesse Jane, Jenna Haze, Tori Black, Belladonna, Jessica Drake, Kirsten Price, Kayden Kross, Riley Steele, Raven Alexis, Joanna Angel, Savanna Samson, Courtney Cummz, Misty Stone, Kagney Linn Karter and Sunny Leone.

They will kickoff the summer at the Palms Pool & Bungalows on Friday, June 4, when the girls will host Ditch Friday, one of the most popular and stimulating weekly pool parties in Sin City since it began in 2007. Then later that night the starlets will entertain at the after-party inside the futuristic Moon Nightclub at the Palms.

"We are thrilled to be the home of AVN," said Palms owner George Maloof. “The summer pool party is going to be a spectacular event."

AVN will also hold a press conference on June 4, when several exciting announcements will be made, including the names of the 2011 AVN Awards Show hosts.

There will also be a poker tournament, autograph signings and numerous photo opportunities throughout the weekend.

“This is a completely new event for us and it should be a blast,” said Paul Fishbein, AVN founder. “All these hot girls at multiple pool parties and events throughout the casino, just to celebrate the awards shows past and future. We had a great 2010 Awards Show at the Palms and we know the January, 2011 Awards Show will be ever bigger and better.”

AVN indicated that its Erotica LA show will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center in June 2011, but fans can still see all their favorite stars this June during this special weekend in Vegas.

The 9 Group operates a total of 10 venues nationwide: seven in Las Vegas, including N9NE Steakhouse, Nove Italiano, Rain Nightclub, Ghostbar, Moon Nightclub, Playboy Club and Palms Pool & Bungalows. This past January the 9 Group’s venues became the epicenter of adult entertainment on its biggest weekend, hosting an incredible array of parties as the AVN Awards Show made its long-awaited debut at the Palms.
