(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- AVN is proud to announce Phil Harvey as one of the keynote speakers for this year’s premier adult industry trade event, the AVN Show. Aside from his role as co-founder and president of Adam & Eve, Harvey is also an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and libertarian who has dedicated the past three decades to creating global non-profit programs that deliver subsidized contraceptives in poor countries.
Harvey is the president of DKT International, the Washington, D.C.-based charity that implements family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention programs in 15 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. He is also the chief sponsor of the Liberty Project which raises awareness about freedom of speech issues in the United States. Harvey has been referred to as ''one of the most influential figures in the American sex industry today.''
A graduate of Harvard College and North Carolina University, Harvey has an operational philosophy that combines altruism with strong business models. Adam & Eve is one of the largest sex product companies in the world, and Harvey’s share of profits from Adam & Eve support DKT International’s mission to make low-priced contraceptives available though business channels found in every corner of the world. Thanks to his efforts, millions of impoverished men and women around the globe have been protected from unwanted pregnancies, STDs, and HIV infections.
Phil Harvey will deliver one of the two keynote presentations at the AVN Show, which takes place August 5-8 in Hollywood, Fla. For more information on attending the conference, please visit AVNshow.com.
