The expo was first held in , with about 50 retailers and erotica-related businesses in attendance. In , substantial media coverage of attempts to ban the parade led to several weeks of political and moral debate in local political circles with the mayor Dick Hubbard condemning the parade and the expo , the public and the media, resulting in the parade drawing several tens of thousands of spectators.

After 12 years, Auckland's ASB Showground will no longer play host the adult entertainment expo after a contract between the two parties ended. The show had seen better days and had dropped off in popularity," ASB Showground's chief executive Mark Frankham said. Speaking at the Auckland Council's culture arts and events forum on Tuesday, Auckland Agricultural, Pastoral and Industrial Shows Board chairman Dave Scott said the board, which owns the showground, had been trying for a long time to show Crow the door. Although Crow admitted he was unaware the expo had been shut out of the venue, he said he had "no plans to go back there anyway". He is already looking at other venues.
