Larry Flynt to Give Keynote at Xbiz
by: Company Press Release
(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Xbiz is pleased to announce that Larry Flynt, the celebrated founder of Hustler Magazine and LFP Inc., will be its final keynote speaker for the upcoming Xbiz Hollywood Conference ’07, taking place Feb. 7-8, at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Instead of providing a typical keynote address during the Feb. 8 keynote time slot, Flynt will participate in an in-depth interview that will begin at 4:00 p.m. The Q&A format will allow for a more unrestrictive discussion of topics, including audience participation.
In addition to his position as perhaps the most iconic figure in the adult entertainment industry, Flynt is a well-known political and social thinker who regularly weighs in on national issues having to do with free speech, individual rights and civil liberties. A passionate and articulate cultural and political libertarian, Flynt has also penned several books, most recently "Sex, Lies & Politics: The Naked Truth," which Publisher’s Weekly called a "…provocative polemic against conservatism in general and the Bush administration in particular…"
"We have industry veterans and then we have industry legends," Xbiz president Alec Helmy said. "Larry is one of the legends. His achievements, contributions and business acumen span multiple decades, and that level of success is one in a million. This will certainly be one of the great highlights of the Xbiz Hollywood '07 Conference."
Xbiz Publisher Tom Hymes agreed. "Mr. Flynt has an invaluable perspective regarding the industry’s role as both a billion-dollar business and a controversial participant in the culture wars. Anyone who has seen him interviewed knows that his opinions remain extraordinarily shrewd and unpredictable. At this precise point in time, when the adult entertainment industry faces many challenges and opportunities, there is no better person to address the industry about where it is headed than Larry Flynt."
