LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce plans for its first-ever “I Heart Pornstars” special event on Jan. 10 at the Key Club on the famed Sunset Strip in Hollywood as part of its XBIZ 360° industry events series.

The annual tribute bash is set to host the top stars of adult film and the movers and shakers behind the scenes for the crowning of the 2013 Penthouse Pet of the Year, one of the most prestigious annual titles in the world of adult entertainment that this year will go to performer Nicole Aniston. Produced in association with Licensed Adult Talent Agents Trade Association (LATATA), the special event is set to be the ultimate mix of business and pleasure.

The “I Heart Pornstars” party will be the climax of the first day of the inaugural XBIZ 360° Adult Film Conference, a first-of-its-kind event dedicated to performers, producers and studio heads slated for Jan. 10-11 at the luxurious Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles. The conference will culminate with the industry awards event of the year, the 2013 XBIZ Awards.

The XBIZ 360° Adult Entertainment Film Conference will cover every major facet of the rapidly changing business of adult film/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 to the XBIZ 360° Adult Film 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 events that will catapult attendees into the fast lane for 2013.

The Key Club is located at 9039 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 90069. To RSVP for the “I Heart Pornstars” party, email iheartpornstars@xbiz.com.
