LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is set to storm DTLA on Wednesday, Nov. 14, for the grandest, most glamorous RISE Adult Talent Appreciation Gala.
The annual red-carpet event, which honors and gives thanks to the adult talent community, sets the stage for the XBIZ Show and XBIZ Awards in January.
Following the success of last year’s jam-packed event, this year's gala has moved to a larger venue, hotspot Exchange LA in Downtown Los Angeles, in anticipation of record attendance. Hundreds of performers, clip artists, cam models, agents and production heads will mix-and-mingle for a night of schmoozing, celebration and giving thanks.
The historic venue, with its stunning bronze doors and 53-foot granite facade, accommodates over 1,000 guests, and originally served as the headquarters of the Los Angeles Stock Exchange and the Pacific Stock Exchange from 1931-1986. The building was designated a Cultural Monument in 1979 and its exterior is protected by the Los Angeles Conservancy.
“Every year, XBIZ is honored to host the only yearly event that channels the Thanksgiving spirit and honors the personalities that make the industry the thriving community it is today,” XBIZ Events Director Moe Helmy said. “Last year’s turnout once again exceeded our expectations, and as new faces consistently enter the industry we expect this to be our biggest and best RISE Adult Talent Appreciation Gala yet.”
Save the date: Wednesday, Nov. 14, 8 p.m. Due to the exclusive nature of the event, reservations are requested. Send your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
