LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce FriendFinder Networks’ CEO Anthony Previte as its special guest keynote speaker for the 2014 edition of XBIZ 360 Digital Media Conference.

Scheduled for Jan. 22-25, the digital media conference is one of seven events as part of the XBIZ 360 events series, which will bring together industry executives and entrepreneurs from around the world to explore the future of the multibillion-dollar adult industry.

With a complete take-over of the extraordinary W Hollywood Hotel, the 2014 edition of XBIZ 360 is set to be the most all-encompassing trade show in adult industry history, culminating with the industry’s awards event of the year — the 2014 XBIZ Awards show, presented by Fleshlight and hosted by adult movie legend Jenna Jameson as master of ceremonies.

FriendFinder Networks, with its diverse portfolio of dating and live cam sites which include powerhouse brands AdultFriendFinder.com and Cams.com, operates some of the Internet's top-visited destinations which allow people the opportunity to establish connections for dating, romance and a wide variety of specialty encounters.

FriendFinder Networks is the steward of one of the most well-known brands in the realm of adult entertainment: Penthouse, which publishes print and multimedia products as well as its brand licensing division, which counts among them a string of Penthouse branded gentlemen’s clubs. 

Groomed for several years to eventually lead FriendFinder Networks, Previte was tapped in 2008 as the entertainment conglomerate's Chief Operating Officer, later climbing the ladder to company President in 2012.

In July 2012, Previte was chosen to succeed Marc Bell as CEO, a position that Bell held for 10 years.

Prior to joining the company, Previte held executive positions at financial business consulting services firm Starsmith LLC and Globix Corp.

In his first year as Chief Executive Officer of FriendFinder Networks, Previte helped shift the company’s business towards its growing live cam and mobile audiences, while launching a new European interactive TV product. Currently working to bolster its business divisions in the midst of its corporate restructuring, Previte is at the sharp end of the spear and plans on sharing his outlook with XBIZ 360 attendees.

“I am flattered to be asked by XBIZ to serve as keynote speaker of the upcoming XBIZ 360,” Previte said. “I look forward to sharing and reflecting on my past experiences as well as discussing what is yet to come in our industry.”

Attendees will find Previte’s keynote to be one of the key highlights of the XBIZ 360 events series given his involvement with a wide variety of adult entertainment business units.

“It’s a great privilege to host Anthony come January,” XBIZ founder Alec Helmy said. “With his unique set of experiences steering a multi-faceted enterprise through the many challenges facing the adult industry, he will provide the type of insights that will surely resonate with our audience, providing great inspiration to everyone facing tough choices.”

The XBIZ 360 Digital Media Conference explores the rapidly changing world of online adult entertainment; including in-depth analysis of the latest technological advances, timely sessions discussing the changes in the industry and how new and established companies are positioning themselves for future growth by adapting to the latest market trends.

In addition to exploring the future of online adult entertainment, XBIZ 360 will feature related conferences tailored to the movie production, retail and pleasure products markets — providing the most comprehensive showcase of industry insights ever presented.
