Welcome to Wristrained!

Welcome back to Wristrained!

The winner of the 2013 Arizona Power Exchange Community Award, Wristrained has made a big impact in our community! Produced by Arizona Bound, Wristrained is Arizona’s only rop-themed convention. Wristrained returns on  April 26th-27th 2014 to the Radisson Hotel Phoenix Airport,  427 N. 44th Street, Phoenix, AZ  85008.

Wristrained is Arizona’s largest, and hottest, all rope bondage event. Wristrained is an event to celebrate local rope artists and enthusiasts. Our event is intimate and personal. Our Featured Artists take the time, beyond their scheduled instruction, to speak with you, to work with you, to answer your questions. The speakers we invite to our event may not be internationally, or even nationally, known presenters in the greater rope community, but they are skilled at what they do, and they are there to help. Wristrained Featured Artists understand that this event is intended to give back to our community, to strengthen our community, and that our attendees are the most important part of this event, not their ego.

Wristrained first spread it’s wings on April 13th, 2013. It was very well received by those who attended, and our attendance numbers were outstanding for a first time event. This year we look to go even bigger. This year we look to expand our offerings from what was (more or less) just a demostration setting at Wristrained 2013. We listened to your feedback, and have made every attempt to meet as many of the suggestions as we could.

Wristrained 2014 will have a great selection of demo style classes still as it’s backbone. We are hoping to bring you an even larger group of Artists this year! We hope to bring back some of (if not all of) our amazing presenters from Wristrained 2013.  We are also pushing the envelope further to develop the Arizona Rope Community by specifically looking for new talent, and looking to give those individuals a shot as one of our Introductory Artists.  These are artists who possesses the skills, but have yet to gain the opportunity to present at a large event.  We also look to expand Wristrained with an amazing offering of hands on training classes, as well as some very thorough extended intensive classes. We will also be including the much requested lunch break, as well as hoping to expand our vendor offering.
