LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce Ethan Imboden, founder of the design-centric Jimmyjane brand, as the visionary keynote speaker for the highly anticipated XBIZ 360° Pleasure Products Conference, presented by Pipedream Products, slated for Jan. 9 at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles.

Imboden entered the pleasure products industry with an entrepreneurial background in design and engineering, spanning more than 10 years in brand and product development for top design firms and consulting for clients such as Ford, Motorola, Dell and Nike. In 2003, he founded Jimmyjane with the goal of leveraging his integrated design philosophy within the pleasure products industry to transform the consumer experience.

In recent years, Imboden has received more than 10 ID, IDEA, AIGA, and Good Design awards in recognition of his contributions to the fields of product and graphic design. A prolific innovator, he is listed as inventor on more than 20 registered patents and applications.

“It’s been a 10-year blur since I attended my first pleasure products tradeshow and in that short time, our market has undergone dramatic changes, impacting everything from development methodologies and distribution strategies to consumer perception and media representation,” Imboden said. “I’m pleased to serve as keynote speaker of the XBIZ 360 Pleasure Products Conference and look forward to sharing observations from the decade past, and projecting possible futures for the decade to come. The pace of change in our industry is only accelerating, and I’m excited to have this opportunity to reflect on what’s coming next with friends and colleagues.”

The XBIZ 360° Pleasure Products Conference will provide specialized expertise from the industry’s top executives in the realm of pleasure products. The one-day trade conference will cover essential topics and issues relevant to the industry, creating an unparalleled opportunity to learn where the industry is headed in the coming year as well as connect with the most influential members of the adult novelty and retail communities.

“Under Ethan's progressive leadership, Jimmyjame has taken a cutting-edge approach to product design and brand building that wholly complements the theme of our event,” XBIZ President and Publisher Alec Helmy said. “XBIZ is very pleased to present Ethan Imboden in his first address to the industry as the visionary keynote for our XBIZ 360° Pleasure Products Conference, granting attendees a rare opportunity to gain perspective about the future of pleasure products from a true innovator.”

As part of the XBIZ 360° conference series, the Pleasure Products Conference will be held in tandem with the Retail Conference, presented by Adam & Eve stores, followed by the Adult Film Conference, presented by LiveJasmin.com, and the Digital Media Conference, presented by CECash.com.

Highlighting XBIZ 360° is the star-studded 2013 XBIZ Awards, presented by Fleshlight and hosted by the incomparable adult film superstar Tera Patrick.
