Thursday at the 2015 XBIZ 360

Friday, January 16th, 2015

These photos were taken Thursday at the Andaz West Hollywood where the 2015 adult B-to-B trade show XBIZ 360 was held. The combination of great weather, people preparing for the evening’s XBIZ Awards and those that already headed off to Las Vegas for the AVN show resulted in a rather sparse turnout of attendees on Thursday afternoon.

Thursday did offer several seminars, demonstrations and panels for those that stuck around. Topics included building paysites, gay porn, adult PR and hot genres. The keynotes dealt with the Future of Online Adult Entertainment and the Future of Adult Film. Suffice it to say, that even with tubes and piracy the industry is not going anywhere.

All-in-all, it was a pretty good show with the right mixture of business and partying. I do not know what the final attendance numbers were primarily because there were a lot of distractions for out of town visitors so I never really experienced any time that everyone was at one venue. From the conversations I had, most seemed to feel they were able to conduct the business they needed to get done.

Thanks again to my photo sponsor, Mobius Payments. (more…)

Wednesday at the 2015 XBIZ 360

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

These photos are from Wednesday at the adult industry conference XBIZ 360, which is being held at the Andaz West Hollywood. The day consisted of various seminars, workshops, demonstrations and keynote talks. The evening included the Free Speech Coalition Awards, BrokerBabe’s Webmaster Rodeo Bash at Saddle Ranch Chop House and an awards dinner.

Thursday will bring more of the same during the day with the XBIZ Red Carpet and Awards happening later this evening; good luck to all the nominees. Special thanks to merchant processing provider, Mobius Payments for sponsoring the photos. (more…)

Friday at AVN’s Internext Summer 2014

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Friday was the last official day of AVN’s adult Internet marketers B2B trade show, Internext Summer 2014 which was held at the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center. The day started off with coffee and beignets as people recovered from the previous evening’s festivities. The business and networking continued with Speed Networking, seminars and the GFY networking lunch.

When the last of the seminars ended the networking continued with the Affil4you Happy Hour; followed by the Affiliate Cocktail Party sponsored by UpForIt, Juicy Ads, Affil4you and AdultCentro. People then split up into groups and did dinner. The evening ended with the Big 6 Bourbon Street Bash at the Hustler Club.

As it seems most people have departed and thunderstorms have been going on all Saturday morning, sight-seeing would be a little damp so I guess you could say Internext Summer 2014 is now officially over. I would like to thank all the sponsors involved in making this show all it was; especially AVN and GFY for the nice hotel room, Orbital Pay for the Traffic Dinner invite, Grand Slam Media for the House of Slam concert and last, but certainly not least, my photo sponsor, Exxxtasy Online. I had a great time and doubt I will wait another 27 years to return to New Orleans. (more…)
