2024 AltStar Awards and Expo Schedule

2106

As I mention in the issue of AltStar Magazine, presented by MyFreeCams, that’s about to be released, we’re on the verge of some even more exciting growth for our annual AltStar Awards event, presented by Bad Dragon. Tons of details below. We will add more schedule details to the site as we get them. But, if you just want to get straight to setting up to attend:
Tickets are at this ticket link. Hotel discount room block reservations are at this link. If you are a nominee, past year nominee, or press, please contact us for your complimentary VIP passes for all the weekend events.

We’ve found a fun and cool new party location that I think everyone will enjoy. Also in the heart of the Arts District in Downtown Las Vegas, Sinwave is a bigger space with room to have the red carpet indoors with air conditioning, so VIP attendees can all be photographed at your cool and hot best. The red carpet looks in previous years have always been so fabulous and interesting and we are looking forward to seeing what everyone wears this year. Once again, the ceremony will be hosted by MC Jeffrey Damnit and Trophy Goddess Malice McMunn. They will be presenting our beautiful cut crystal star trophies to winners on stage and they will be presenting in every category. The AltStar Awards announces all nominees live on stage. You can see the list of nominees here. photo by Tef WesleyAdditionally, they will be presenting AltStar Hall of Fame inductees and the Chaturbate Broadcaster of the Year. We’ll have a party bus, sponsored by BlueBlood, to take everyone from the official convention hotel to the red carpet and ceremony venue where the red carpet will be hosted by AltStar Hall of Famers Amelia G and Forrest Black and there will be tons of photo and video media created. The red carpet is sponsored by Bad Dragon, LoyalFans, and Hankey’s Toys. There is open bar during the first hours of the red carpet, so it is worth it to show up early. In addition to the ceremony, we will have a fantastic burlesque performance by last year’s AltStar Awards Best Modern Burlesque winner Daisy Ducati. Here is the schedule for the AltStar Awards night, but keep reading because adding the mini convention in our official hotel last year went so well that we have expanded to three days of festivities.

AltStar Expo


Friday evening, we will be kicking things off at the official convention hotel with a media/mixer room in the Albert I and II Hall and a separate room across the way in George I with a slate of panels we are very excited about. The media/mixer area will give all of you wonderful attendees the opportunity to mingle and catch up with old friends and meet new collaborators. Same as last year, there will be complimentary snacks and drinks. There will be three photo stations in the Albert Hall, two run by award-winning photographers and one well-lit selfie station. There will also be a number of exhibitors, including Zinetastic showcasing back issues of AltStar Magazine, among other things. The panels in the George room will feature top experts sharing tips for success and anecdotes from their interesting careers. The first day panels include Branding, How to be Good Male Talent, and once again, the Alt Model Success in a Mainstream World panel which was so popular last year. Keep scrolling because there is more!

We are thrilled and excited to be embarking on our second AltStar Awards and Convention Weekend in Las Vegas! After a decade in Hollywood, California, it’s been an incredible amount of work making the move and adding all these new activities, but last year was a blast and this year has even more! I really want to take a moment to appreciate all the cool companies that have stepped up to help sponsor the growth. It makes me so happy to see people supporting the Alt community and helping foster a space for such an amazing group of diverse creative individuals, dedicated to doing sexy cool things in their own unique ways. Las Vegas was a big change for us and we’re still getting used to things, working through unexpected surprises, and adding details that I think will make this event even better for everyone. I just wish we could give a trophy to ALL of you, because this community is kicking out so much amazing and inspiring work.

As last year’s event sold out and this year’s event is an additional day, only VIP tickets are available at this time and General Admission may or may not end up being released. VIP tickets give access to all activities, snacks, open bar, red carpet, ceremony, etc. If you are a nominee who has contacted us for your secret code, you may use it at the ticketing link and this is also where additional VIP tickets may be purchased.

The hotel was gracious enough to extend our discount room block by a couple of days, but the extension is only a couple of days, so please do not sleep on reserving your hotel room. Please note, the first day in our room block is sold out, but, if you would like to come a day earlier or stay a day or two later, please either contact us or DM us with your confirmation number (not other info, just confirmation number) and we can have the hotel manually adjust your reservation while keeping your AltStar discount! These are rooms in the nicer tower, near the pool and mixer locations, where everyone will be staying, includes free valet parking, and more!
