Los Angeles, CA – The upcoming dates for the Transgender Erotica Awards have been changed to March 6-7, 2016 due to a scheduling conflict with the Grammy’s and the unnecessarily high costs of hotel, transport, and entertainment that would be incurred by guests. The event will still be held at the Avalon for the Awards and its connecting property, the Bardot, for the After Party.
‘We’ve always ran the show on the President’s Day weekend but this year the clash with the Grammy’s has caused us to look at the impact it would have on all of our out of town guests,” said Grooby owner Steven Grooby. “I appreciate it’s not ideal to change a date after it’s been announced, but I hope it’s early enough so plans can be changed and I apologize to anyone who has been unduly inconvenienced. We’re working on some extra goodies for the show, including hotel options to try and help all our attendees have an incredible weekend.”
Grooby, the company that hosts the Transgender Erotica Awards (the TEAs), was concerned by the high cost of hotel, transportation, and additional expenses guests would incur by hosting the event the same weekend as the Grammy’s and decided it would be beneficial to move the event to a later date.
“By giving almost six months notice, we’re trusting this decision won’t affect anyone’s plans too drastically,” said Grooby Marketing Director Kristel Penn. “If it has, however, caused undue hardship to any of our guests, I encourage them to contact me immediately.”
