LOS ANGELES — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection has announced its participation in the upcoming QWEBEC Expo, slated for August 9-11 at the Marriott Chateau Champlain in Montreal.

QWEBEC Expo is a tradeshow and technical conference serving existing and prospective online adult entertainment professionals. The annual event acts as an international crossroads for U.S., Canadian and European members of the adult industry to gather, network and learn about the latest technologies, trends, products and services.

Promoters of QWEBEC Expo are providing ASACP with banner space, a table for their informational materials and an ad in the event’s show guide.

“QWEBEC Expo is honored to support ASACP and RTA again this year by giving them as much exposure as possible,” event organizer Michael Plante said. “Tim and his team are doing a tremendous job of helping mainstream audiences understand that the legitimate adult industry community has no links to CP and is fighting this heinous crime against children.”

ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning says he will attend the event as part of the association’s commitment to educate businesses about the need to protect children on the Internet and how ASACP services, such as the Restricted To Adults website metalabel, Best Practices and a Code of Ethics enable this endeavor.

“The QWEBEC Expo attracts a global audience of digital media stakeholders, including those that might avoid American events due to travel restrictions,” Henning stated. “Reaching this critical and diverse audience is vital to the association’s international outreach efforts.”

Henning will play an active role in the event, moderating the “New Bees Worksho,” where “the questions you were too shy to ask” will be answered, representatives say.  

“Having a voice on the ‘New Bees Workshop’ is valuable to ASACP, as it allows us to reach both new and prospective entrants to the online adult entertainment arena,” Henning explained. “This is a perfect opportunity to deliver our message of corporate and social responsibility to frontline operators, helping to stem potential problems before they begin.”

Henning will have an additional opportunity to present his pitch to QWEBEC Expo attendees when he participates as a panelist in the“Adult Industry Do’s and Don’ts” session that will examine the ethics of porn promotion.

He will also join adult entertainment moguls for the 6th Annual QWEBEC Masters Golf Tournament at Club de Golf de Montreal and participate in QWEBEC’s Hockey Night.
