Sexapalooza bounces back after sophomore slump

Sexapalooza is doing well, but in the third year of the show, manager Liz Lewis would like to see it grow a bit bigger.

Sexapalooza is doing well, but in the third year of the show, manager Liz Lewis would like to see it grow a bit bigger.


But there are challenges, she said.


The salons at Lansdowne Park are getting too cramped for the 15,000 people that came to the show this weekend. There is no room to grow and the new plan for Lansdowne Park has no trade show space at all.


In its three years in Ottawa, Lewis said the event bounced back strongly after the bus strike, terrible weather and a recession combined for a sophomore slump.


The show, she said, is about promoting healthy sexuality, which makes the information component very important. Ten percent of the booths are set aside for non-profit groups devoted to education.
