The XBIZ 360° Adult Entertainment Conference will cover every major facet of the rapidly changing business of adult content today. Topics will include genre trends, such as the recent surge in couples-themed and all-girl porn; performer branding, such as establishing star power in today's social-media driven world; and adult film production technology, including practical analysis of the latest technological solutions and advances.
In addition, the conference will address trends related to content distribution channels with executive insights about various delivery platforms such as VOD, IPTV, mobile and the still profitable DVD; the industry marketing/PR machine, including how to effectively navigate today’s media landscape to build buzz; and the future of adult film from the perspective of major studio heads.
The XBIZ 360° Adult Entertainment Conference will culminate with a special keynote address from one of the adult film industry’s most-renowned visionaries to be announced in the coming weeks.
"We believe there's been an unmet need for an all-encompassing conference for the adult film community," XBIZ founder and president Alec Helmy said. "This one-of-a-kind event will provide members of the community the opportunity to stay ahead of the curve in today's fast changing business, cultivate relationships and propel their business in the new year."
In addition to the XBIZ 360° Adult Entertainment Conference, this breakthrough event series will feature related conferences individually devoted to the digital sector and the realm of retail — providing the industry's most comprehensive showcase of trade event offerings that will catapult attendees into the fast lane for 2013.
Highlighting the event will be the star-studded 2013 XBIZ Awards, presented by Fleshlight and hosted by the incomparable adult film superstar Tera Patrick. The red-carpet gala will honor movers and shakers across more than 150 award categories — spotlighting the year's best in Web & Technology, Movies & Production, Pleasure Products and Retail & Distribution market segments.
