Just some days ago The European Summit in Sitges, Spain ended. It is one of those B2B events for the adult online industry where nobody is starving. Not regarding networking opportunities and neither food or drinkwise. Sure it was not yet summer however the patio of the Calipolis hotel was rarely empty. The sky was blue and the sun brought in at least 20 degrees during the days.
If you’re working in the adult industry it’s quite a must to visit the XBIZ 360. It’s a B2B event packed with seminars, discussion panels and networking opportunities.
This years event was held in the very stylish W Hotel Hollywood. Right in front of the doors one could find the many stars of Hollywood’s “Walk Of Fame”. Inside though it was time for business: Digital Media, Adult Film, Pleasure Products and Adult Retail were the main conference topics. For example one could listen to the very inspiring Keynote speech by New Sensations founder Scott Taylor. Those more interested in porn stars could hear from James Deen, Asa Akira or Christy Mack how they life their porn lives. Talks about traffic generation, how to sell novelties or the porn laws in the US were as well attracting a broad audience.
One evening the FSC (Free Speech Coalition) gave away their awards for remarkable achievments. The other night webcam giant Live Jasmin hosted a party on the hotels roof. The perfect preparation for the main big party, the XBIZ Award show the day after.
Some of the winners were:
