LOS ANGELES — Performer, sex educator and Wicked Sensual Care Brand Strategist Jessica Drake will moderate a virtual panel discussion, titled "Business Today: How Retail Operations are Evolving," for the ANME/XBIZ Show Thursday, July 15, at 9 a.m. (PDT).
Drake will lead a panel of veteran pleasure brand professionals — currently set to include Carol Schweitzer of Doctor Love and Hemp City, Zondre Watson of Ero-Tech Corporation, Megan Swartz from Janra and Deja Vu, Coyote Amrich from Barnaby, Tami Rose from Romantic Adventures and Debra Peterson from Fairvilla — as they explore how adult retailers adapted amid the COVID-19 pandemic and what to expect in-store as society moves past social distancing restrictions.
“I’m very excited to join so many respected industry members for ANME/XBIZ,” Drake said. “I look forward to moderating the discussion on how retail operations have evolved in response to the pandemic. We'll be focusing on workable solutions for customers, employees, managers and owners alike. This is a vitally important subject, and I’m grateful to see so many professionals from various backgrounds joining together to share their unique perspectives."
"My goal as always is to help others in establishing a stronger rapport with each other while increasing understanding and compassion," she said.
In addition, Wicked Sensual Care's Director of Sales Jennifer Brice will actively participate in the week's daily one-on-one sales meetings and networking events.
"Although we wish it were in person, we’ll be excited to see our customers virtually," Brice said. "We appreciate ANME/XBIZ for putting the show together and look forward to discussing plans for the second half of 2021."
