MIAMI — XBIZ is pleased to announced that Cathy Beardsley, SegPay’s president and CEO, will deliver a special keynote address that sets the stage for the inaugural 2016 WIA Summit at XBIZ Miami.
The first-ever WIA keynote, sponsored by Chaturbate, is scheduled for Thursday, June 2, at 11 a.m.
Organizers chose Beardsley to keynote WIA Summit based on her wealth of experience in online adult and her unique perspective from a businesswoman’s point of view.
Beardsley, in fact, was honored at the 2016 XBIZ Industry Exec Awards as Businesswoman of the Year during the 2016 XBIZ Show in West Hollywood, Calif.
As president and CEO of leading payment processing company SegPay, Beardsley oversees the day-to-day operations and long-term strategic planning for the company, one of four companies approved by Visa USA to operate as a high-risk internet payment service provider in the U.S.
“I am honored to be speaking this May in Miami at Women in Adult,” Beardsley told XBIZ. “I am looking forward to sharing my insights and getting to know more women in the industry.”
XBIZ Miami 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.”
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 show offers a bold mix of high-energy events combined with the laid-back tropical setting of South Beach.
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 — as well as the annual Mankini contest, networking sessions and more.
XBIZ Miami rooms at the SLS Hotel are now sold out, but additional rooms are available nearby at adjacent sister property, The Redbury, by calling (305) 604-1776 and by using group code “XBIZ.”
