Set for its fourth annual show, the Latin America Adult Business Expo (LALExpo) runs from July 10-12, at the Cartagena de Indias Convention Center in Cartagena, Colombia, known as one of the largest and most impressive convention centers in Latin America. According to its promoters, LALExpo attracts a growing international and Latin-American audience of approximately 1,300 business professionals from companies representing all aspects of the online and adult business world. Because LALExpo is a business-to-business, education and trade event, the general public is not permitted to attend, but a diverse range of companies from the billing, mobile tech, ad network, affiliate sector and more will be in attendance.
This executive event is capped by the LALExpo Awards, honoring excellence across dozens of industry categories and market segments.
Anthony Rivera, an organizer of the event and co-founder of AJ Studios, explains that in a global economy, there is a need for a professional-level business event that targets and serves as a resource for the Latin American and Spanish-speaking digital media markets.
“Colombia has emerged as a vibrant center of the global camming community and broader digital media market, and LALExpo’s goal has always been to promote excellence and responsibility among the companies in this space,” Rivera says. “Our roots are in the camming community and we serve this group made up of countless independent performers, providing an opportunity for all adults who wish to make a living and support their families and themselves through today’s technology.”
“Of course, with this opportunity comes a great responsibility to do the right thing, and to help ensure that only those who are legally able to enjoy camming and other adult entrepreneurial activities are doing so,” Rivera adds. “This is why we support ASACP and its mission to educate and professionalize the industry in the name of protecting children, as well as restrict attendance at our event to adult business professionals only.”
Included in its sponsorship package, the LALExpo.com website will feature an ASACP logo along with promotion on the show’s social media and industry forums. The ASACP logo will also be displayed in the show guide, which will feature a half-page ad for the association, and on the show’s interview billboard; while a complimentary table at the event’s Meet Market will allow the association to reach out to adult business owners and operators face-to-face. LALExpo’s promoters have also very generously underwritten ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning’s event admission and hotel room.
“ASACP is extremely grateful to LALExpo for this outpouring of support,” Henning says. “The live cam industry is on the forefront of the need for online child protection to ensure that both fans and performers are of legal age, and as an industry leader, LALExpo’s support of the association sends a very powerful message.”
“Through their generosity,” Henning adds, “ASACP will reach countless frontline operators, providing them with the education and free resources they need to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented materials, helping to make the internet a safer place.”
ASACP uses the support it receives from its sponsors to fund initiatives such as its internationally recognized Child Exploitation Tipline, which has processed more than one million CP reports since its inception; and ASACP’s multiple award-winning Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta labeling system that prevents children’s access to adult-oriented web pages and mobile apps. Market-specific Best Practices and a universal Code of Ethics help guide digital media companies towards child-safe operation and are also among ASACP’s tangible successes.
