XBIZ Summit Pre-Show Swings Into High Gear

Stephen Yagielowicz

MIAMI — Excited attendees of the long awaited and highly anticipated 2012 XBIZ Summit, presented by AWEmpire, are now arriving from around the world: rolling into the luxurious Shelborne Hotel on Miami’s world famous South Beach, where the party and profit-making is just getting started…

Other XBIZ Summit sponsors include WhiteLabelDating.com, PornHub, Affil4You, CCBill, GTBill, MojoHost, ExoClick, CECash, Sex Entertain, Sofort, Humboldt Merchant Services, Saboom, Pay4 and PussyCash, among others.

Slated for May 15-18, the XBIZ Summit kicked off with the return of one of its perennially favorite events, the XBIZ Golf Tournament, presented by X2K.

Sponsored by OrbitalPay, Epoch, MPA3, NETbilling and Gorilla Servers, this afternoon event brought golf fans together for fun and relaxation before the real business begins, allowing them to get a head start on new deals and opportunities at this prestigious retreat for adult business owners and operators. Complimentary shuttle service to the popular Shelborne Hotel Miami Beach Golf Club, along with other helpful amenities, made for an enjoyable and productive day.

Later in the afternoon, event early birds were able to take advantage of the shorter lines and faster service at the PussyCash-sponsored registration booth, where attendees enjoyed informal networking — making new contacts and renewing existing relationships. This one-on-one time while waiting to pick up registration badges, free drink tickets and other show credentials — along with a hefty “swag bag,” generously stuffed with free goodies from the show’s sponsors — forms an excellent opportunity for savvy marketers to get a jumpstart on their competitors.

The excitement was palpable as a growing group of attendees began to arrive around dinnertime and venture about the venue — getting their bearings at this new show hotel and preparing for the action to come — action they would not have to wait long for, as the evening’s events got underway.

Hosted by adult superstar Vicky Vette and sponsored by Adult Webmaster Empire and NETbilling, the XBIZ Summit Warm-Up Party in the Shelborne Hotel’s comfortable lobby bar, kept the heat going even after the sun set over South Beach. With Martinis and Mojitos in hand, XBIZ Summit attendees mixed and mingled, for one-on-one conversations in a relaxing atmosphere, along with small group discussions that included a range of participants; from new entrants to the industry to its top movers and shakers.

For its part, XBIZ hosted an exclusive sponsor appreciation dinner at the Vesper Brasserie in the Shelborne Hotel, providing a “thank you” to those companies that make events like XBIZ Miami possible, while introducing staff members to advertisers and opening new doors for adult business execs to make the most of their support of the XBIZ brand.

Balancing business and pleasure, the XBIZ Summit pre-show events allowed ambitious attendees to get their deal-making done, while paving the way for the information packed and fun-filled days ahead.
