LOS ANGELES — The promoters of the sixth edition of the Latin America Adult Business Expo (LALExpo) are reporting its successful conclusion and the setting of new attendance and sponsorship records.
Held from February 17-20 in Cali, Colombia, the city known as “Branch of the Sky,” LALExpo reportedly attracted more than 50 sponsors, eager to reach the businessmen, traffic companies, webmasters, studios, models and websites, that were part of the more than 2,000 attendees at the conference.
The seminars addressed a variety of international and local issues, such as FOSTA/SESTA, the legal landscape in Colombia, tools for growing successful teams for webcam studios, content production for Latam, and more.
One of the best experiences was with actress Esperanza Gómez, who unveiled the secrets of success and answered open questions from attendees; among them, “What has been the biggest challenge she has faced in her career in the adult industry?”
During this event, the fifth edition of Camgirl Magazine was also launched, loaded with new stories, photos and the secrets of top models.
The different display booths showed the innovation and growth of the companies, new apps for the models, the presence of representatives from the main webcam sites, the advances in technology with the virtual reality lounge, and the different payment methods used by the industry.
Parties were also part of LALExpo 2019, first welcoming guests with a Hawaiian Pool Party sponsored by BongaCams and Paxum. The first day after the cycle of conferences and Meet Market, was a White Party sponsored by FreeWebCams; while the second day, was the Fiesta de Salsa Stripchat.
The closing day was the LALExpo Awards ceremony, the gala that recognizes the efforts of the models, studios and adult community, and ended with the Jasmin Circus closing party that amazed attendees with its stage full of acrobats and color.
Once again, LALExpo is the best place to develop new business connections and learn about the lasts industry developments in Latin America.
A number of attendees had good words to say about the event:
“We were proud to co-organize the very first edition of our Jasmin Academy in Colombia, which we started to help all our partners, models and studios, to maximize their performance on Jasmin,” says Jasmin’s Guillaume Tanferri. “We closed LALExpo 2019 with the now famous Jasmin Circus party, and based on the guests’ reactions, everyone had the time of their life.”
“LALExpo manages to outdo their brilliance and raise the event’s importance year after year, based on skillful organization and a large number of business-minded attendees. LALExpo brings thousands of adult industry executives and performers together, who are eager to get business done,” Chaturbate’s Shirley Lara explains. “Chaturbate highly values LALExpo as the live cam industry market leader for South America. We are looking forward to the 2020 dates and those that will follow for years to come.”
“The impact LALExpo has had on Paxum’s business is phenomenal. Every year the number of attendees increases and with more people comes more knowledge and diversity, and that makes attendance an absolute must!” exclaims Paxum’s Chris Youngs. “Paxum has supported LALExpo as sponsors since its inception in 2014 and we appreciate the dedication of LALExpo staff to always make sure our entire crew is well taken care of. Two huge thumbs up for this show that keeps growing and improving year after year. The next LALExpo is definitely on our 2020 show schedule!”
“It was a pleasure to attend LALExpo for the third year in a row. Streamate has been impressed with the organization, streamlined approach and heartfelt welcome by all organizers over the years,” Streamate’s Liz Rekevics notes. “This year, show attendance was impressive, events were well planned and the flow at the expo center was great. We look forward to visiting Colombia and participating in LALExpo for years to come!”
“I finally went to my first LAL Expo in 2019 and was blown away in many respects. I regret not going to an earlier edition. The organization and quality of everything from start to finish were professional and completely on point,” says Jay Kopita, co-owner of YNOTCam, YNOTAwards, and YNOTMail. “I met many people I would have otherwise not met elsewhere and was able to close deals on the spot that far exceeded my costs for this trip. LAL Expo is now permanently on my schedule.”
“LAL Expo 2019 exceeded all of my business expectations! Anthony and his team worked very hard and successfully executed an international conference with a superb educational track and amazing hospitality,” MojoHost CEO Brad Mitchell exclaims. “I encourage business owners from North America and Europe to attend in even larger numbers next year, as opportunity abounds within South American markets. I very much enjoyed the cultural experience, also, the opportunity to amazingly have such easy access to the owners and decision makers from the largest cam companies in the world. That’s Good Mojo!”
“LALExpo is one of the best events of the year. Anthony and his team really take that extra step to let you feel special and very welcome in Colombia. Most of the people you meet at LALExpo are C-level and it is pretty easy to approach them and have a chat in an informal atmosphere,” Reflected Networks’ Norman Hauwert says. “You say VIP? well, no other event will make you more VIP than LALExpo, even we as a small sponsor got the full VIP treatment, from the airport pickup to the registration, to the amazing parties, you will be taken care of as a real VIP. Reflected Networks will certainly return in 2020 and is looking forward to meeting you there!”
“LALExpo is the most important adult industry event in Latin America. The show is extremely professional and a great place to do business. If you are looking to do business in Colombia, this is your one-stop shop to meet all the industry players,” says Dave from XloveCam. “XloveCam.com has been in the industry for over 13 years and we have won consecutive Best European Webcam Site (2018-19). At the LALExpo event, we are always looking to grown our partnerships with all the models and studios.”
“For the third year in a row, Best Studios was present as a sponsor at LALExpo, a top event in the video chat industry. For us since our first participation in this event, it has meant an extraordinary experience from which we had so much to learn,” Best Studios’ COO Maria Boroghina reveals. “What caught our attention, in particular, is the grandeur of the event, the number of participants and the number of sponsors and their involvement. The seminars bring added value to the event thanks to the speakers and subjects chosen. Through the live voting system offered within the gala, the event brought much transparency desired by everyone, showing real-time the chances of each nominee. In this way, a moment of suspense was created, which made it much better to receive the desired trophy. We will definitely continue to be present and sponsor the following editions.”
