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…)

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…)
