On the final day of XSF attendees made their way into a fruitful Q&A presentation about new Visa regulations with billing experts; which is to be followed by a legal clinic where attendees can walk away with key advice from top industry attorneys and adult trade organizations, ASACP and FSC.
Over the course of the past three days the XBIZ Summer Forum not only mixed business with pleasure but with the oncoming debut of the XFANZ Expo, a colorful mixture of the movers and shakers from all walks of the industry forumulated as everyone united in anticipation for the first-ever outdoor adult consumer show.
Adult movie starlets, including Lupe Fuentes, Joanna Angel and Sunny Lane, could be seen mingling poolside amongst the droves of business men and women from the online sector.
Claudia Marie strutted her stuff poolside in hopes of drawing the online world’s attention to her website and corresponding affiliate program. However, while wading in the crowded Dish Pool, she told XBIZ that XFANZ was the main event on her agenda.
“I love my fans and I’m so excited that I’ll be able to spend as much time with each of them as I want without a stuffy, crowded venue,” Marie said, adding that based on feedback on her website and online social networking ventures, more than 200 of her fans have already bought their tickets for the opportunity to meet her and her teeny bikini by the world-famous Hard Rock Hotel pool.
MetroBabes got a leg up on the competition, giving consumers a peak into its cabana even as it was intended for a B2B audience.
MetroBabes' Most Wanted girls Nyomi Banxxx, Sunny Lane, and Jessica Bangkok began streaming live from the MetroBabes.com booth during the XBIZ Summer Forum and will continue to through the XFANZ Expo.
As more sponsors, exhibitors and hundreds of adult stars from the movie and novelty sides of the biz made their arrival at the Hard Rock Hotel Wednesday in preparation of today’s groundbreaking event, all of the industry’s finest from all sectors across the board were undivided.
Jeff Bolanos whose BeaMonstar brand of award winning sex enhancement supplements for men, women and couples will be showcased today at XFANZ, arrived at the Hard Rock Hotel a day early seeking opportunities to cross promote.
“I think having the two shows coincide like this is a great representation of what the industry should - and does - do, which is support each other,” Bolanos said. “Today I got to talk business with online entrepreneurs and tomorrow I get to mix with other novelty companies and the lovely stars that attract men - my target consumer.”
While some XSF attendees trek back to their offices, others told XBIZ that curiosity about the XFANZ Expo will keep them in town. With the ribbon cutting ceremony only a few hours away, the 2010 XBIZ Summer Forum ends in excitement.
