Larry Flynt to Guest at XBIZ Retail Expo, Mark Franks to Host Q&A

LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce that the inaugural XBIZ Retail Expo & Conference will feature a special keynote session featuring Hustler founder Larry Flynt with Mark Franks of Castle Megastore serving as the session’s Q&A host.

The Retail Expo is a first-of-its-kind retail trade event, which brings together the premier adult retail chains of North America representing more than 200 adult stores.

“For those attending the XBIZ Retail Expo, I can promise this, I’ll deliver a great speech,” Flynt told XBIZ.

Castle Megastore CEO and President Mark Franks, who is a XBIZ Retail advisory board member, will be on hand presenting and fielding questions during the session.

"I am honored to have the privilege to host the Q&A for Larry Flynt," Franks said.

"Larry has been a leader, pioneer and visionary through decades of change in the adult industry. Even during these challenging economic and regulatory times, Larry’s passion, leadership and business acumen are an inspiration for all. It will be a real treat for attendees to share Larry’s view and vision on the now and the future of adult.

"XBIZ has taken an amazing leadership role by providing the first industry expo ever, focusing on retail best practices," Franks added.

"I am very excited to be a part of the advisory board that has given me the opportunity to mold and formulate the topics and sessions being offered to all attendees. I am personally excited to attend these sessions so that I too can improve my business skills and prepare myself and Castle Megastore for a more competitive business landscape in the future."

The event will bring together business professionals and industry leaders from all segments of the adult retail marketplace, such as retail store owners and buyers, e-tailers, home party organizers, wholesalers and adult product manufacturers.

The XBIZ Retail Expo & Conference will coincide with the industry’s biggest business awards show, the 9th annual XBIZ Awards preceded by the leading digital media trade conference, XBIZ LA.
