By on September 5, 2007

skin two expoNow in our 9th year, the Skin Two Expo is the world’s biggest fetish fair, attended by 4,000 people from around the world. Come and join us on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th October. Enjoy the demos. Chill out with Club RUB. Meet your local fetish clubs, models – and specialist BDSM/fetish suppliers you won’t find anywhere else.

Some of you may remember the first Skin Two Expo, in 1998 at the Institute for Contemporary Art, in the Mall – in front of Buckingham Palace, no less! This became the world’s biggest fetish fair and we moved to a larger space in ’99. This year, we have moved again, to a still bigger venue, ExCel London. This is a very cool purpose-built £300 million exhibition centre, with 4,000 parking spaces, 6 hotels, 30 bars and restaurants, etc.

ExCel is easier to reach from outside London – just off the M25 motorway. It’s convenient for Londoners too – fast and easy on the Jubilee line and 3 minutes from Canning Town on the DLR Beckton line. It even has its own station, Custom House, in the heart of the booming Docklands regeneration area, beside the financial centre at Canary Wharf. Get full information on the venue, including travel, maps, hotels, restaurants, etc, at

Media partners this year include Spice Extreme, part of Playboy International, who are promoting their TV channel – come along to their stand and discover how to watch rude films on your TV at home. And check out the TV ads for the Expo on Sky, Virgin Media and Tiscali.

Come and relax, get a coffee and meet friends in the Cafe Club area, hosted again for us this year by Club RUB, London’s friendly fetish club.

Meet your favourite fetish models in the models zone. Enjoy the demos – learn to swing a whip! Find your local fetish club in the clubs zone – maybe they can tempt you to go along!

Most of all, shop ’til you drop. The Skin Two Expo gathers together the world’s top fetish specialists in one place, for just two days each year. Check out the latest shoes at Alternative Footwear, super bondage gear from London’s Beautiful & Damned, Masks from Black Rose, or electrics from E-Stim Systems and Electrastim. Book a pervy holiday at Euphoria Weekends, commission a portrait by Suzanne Rachel Forbes from Berkeley, California and get your loved one the super new Fetish Photo Anthology from Secret of Belgium.

Of course, the Skin Two Expo is part of Rubber Ball Weekend, so you can hang out at the Expo on Friday and Saturday, buy an outfit and then wear it to the Ball on Saturday night. Whatever you do, don’t miss the Rubber Ball!

Expo opening hours are 12 until 7pm on Friday 5th and 11 am until 5 pm on Saturday 6th. Tickets are only £12 in advance + £1 booking fee – and this year tickets include both days, so you can visit as much as you like on both days.
