Photos from Thursday at the 2017 Phoenix Forum

Friday, March 24th, 2017

The photos were taken Thursday at one of the longest running adult B-to-B trade shows, The Phoenix Forum. For the 13th straight year, the Phoenix Forum has been held at the Tempe Mission Palms hotel; with the entire venue being dedicated to Phoenix Forum attendees only.

As I mentioned in my previous article, the weather was a good 20 or 25 degrees cooler than what people have grown accustomed. My first Forum was 2004 when we had monsoon rains; I think it was warmer then than it has been this week. To be clear, I have no complaints; I will take 70 over 95 any day.

The photos from Thursday include the multiple panels, seminars and round-table discussions that were held, along with the XBIZ Speed Networking, the GFY Happy Hour, the Welcome Reception, Cybersocket Kickoff Party and the Late Night Suites. (more…)

The Phoenix Forum 2017 YNOT Grand Prix

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

These photos were taken at the YNOT Grand Prix event at Octane Raceway.

The 2017 Phoenix Forum unofficially began Wednesday with the X2K Golf Tournament and the YNOT Grand Prix which was held at Octane Raceway in Scottsdale. While racers zipped around the track, others enjoyed some Mexican food and networking.

This will be an interesting show in that it is colder than any Forum that I have attended since 2004 when it was drenched with monsoon rains. I am sure people will have a good time; I am just not sure how much use the Tempe Mission Palms pool will get this year.

Once again, my photos for The Phoenix Forum 2017 are sponsored by Mobius Payments; if you are attending The Phoenix Forum, be sure to talk to Matt or Mia about how they can help you with your processing needs. We have been using them for our processing needs for several years and have been extremely happy with the service. (more…)

Photos from Wednesday at XBIZ Show 2017

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

These photos were taken Wednesday at XBIZ Show 2017, an adult B-to-B trade show which is being held this week at Andaz West Hollywood.

Wednesday appeared to be a transition day as it seemed that there were quite a few people heading out after the awards show of Tuesday evening; and even more coming in for the XBIZ Awards which will be held Thursday evening.

My photos include the Performers of the Year panel, the Keynote Q&A with Greg Lansky, and Happy Hour.

Thanks again to Mobius Payments for the photo sponsorship; and a special shout-out to Flirt4Free for sponsoring the valet parking at Andaz West Hollywood, it was definitely appreciated. (more…)
