“This year’s XBIZ Miami schedule is set to impress attendees,”  says XBIZ Events Director Moe Helmy. “We have assembled a stellar lineup of industry experts to share their unique insights with our attendees, and provided a relaxed schedule that allows time for our enhanced slate of networking opportunities.”

The exclusive three-day show is set for May 31 through June 3 at the SLS Hotel, on Miami’s world-famous South Beach. XBIZ Miami coincides this year with the annual CamCon, which is dedicated to serving the live webcam community, and punctuated by its popular “fan day.”

Offering a bold mix of high-energy events combined with the laid-back tropical setting of South Beach, XBIZ Miami brings adult business owners and decision makers together from around the world, to stay up to date with all the latest industry happenings, while taking deal-making and relationship-building to the next level.

The SLS Hotel offers a unique and comfortable décor, along with dining and drinking options that include The Bazaar, with its vibrant mix of sophisticated Latin cuisine, as well as the Asian-inspired Katsuya, for sushi dishes with an American flair. The Terrace, reminiscent of Parisian outdoor cafés, along with the casual Bar Centro, round out the culinary and cocktail highlights of SLS South Beach.

The hub of XBIZ Miami’s entertainment and networking activities is Hyde Beach — known as one of the hottest pools in Miami, featuring cabanas and a lounge that offers drinks and luncheon served poolside, or in the shade of the adjacent Mediterranean garden. Among the special events slated to occur in this luxurious setting are pool volleyball and pool beer pong, the popular “Miss XBIZ Miami” bikini contest, networking sessions and more.
