LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce award-winning star Vicky Vette will host an all-star panel of top performers at the 2016 XBIZ Show on Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 2 p.m.
Just as the adult entertainment industry has faced significant changes over the past few years, so too has the role of the performers who power it.
Vette invites attendees to an insider’s look at how performers are taking their careers into their own hands, redefining the notion of what it means to be a porn star.
“Porn Star 2.0: Evolution of the Adult Performer” features Carter Cruise, Casey Calvert, Chanel Preston, Dani Daniels, Jessica Drake and Tasha Reign, sharing their opinions and insights on the biggest obstacles and best stepping stones to building a career in the rapidly evolving world of adult entertainment.
Attendees wishing to benefit from their years of experience and success are encouraged to bring plenty of questions for the panel.
In describing the panel, Vette told XBIZ: "How do you end up a winner in the porn star game when the rules and even the squares on the board keep changing? The players have to evolve and reinvent themselves to sing and dance new tunes. Just like a game of monopoly, sometimes it's important to dig into your community chest and take a chance. One wrong roll of the dice and you could end up on Baltic Avenue instead of Park Place.
"I am thrilled that so many successful performers are coming together for what should be a kick ass entertaining panel," she added. "There are a lot of minefields for today's performers. I have been in adult for over 12 years and it is never too late to learn or try something new. This panel has navigated a tricky playing field so learn from some of the best. An hour just won't be long enough!''
