LOS ANGELES — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) and Tim Henning, its executive director, will return to the Latin America Adult Business Expo (LALExpo) next month.
The event is set for February 16 to 20 at the Valle del Pacifico convention center in Cali, Colombia. LALExpo is billed as “the definitive B2B show for Central and South America,” with a particular focus on webcam performers and studios.
Anthony Rivera, an organizer of the event and co-founder of AJ Studios, said LALExpo provides “a significant opportunity for ASACP to reach out to professional businesses operating in the Latin American and Spanish-speaking digital media markets.”
Rivera described Colombia as “a hub of the global camming community.”
“Colombia is also making inroads into the broader digital media market. As such, LALExpo promotes excellence and responsibility among the companies that are making a living and supporting their families and themselves through technology,” he stated. “This is why we support ASACP and its mission to educate and professionalize the industry in the name of protecting minors.”
Towards that end, LALExpo restricts attendance to adult industry professionals.
ASACP will receive Crown level sponsorship on the LALExpo website; promotion via social media and industry forums; placement on the event’s interview billboard; and a complimentary table at LALExpo’s “Meet Market” networking event.
Event organizers will also underwrite Hennings’s event admission and travel expenses, alongside ASACP’s Travel Sponsor, DialXS.
Henning notes ASACP’s outreach is “vital” as “the live cam industry is a major driver of opportunity and prosperity for independent performers and companies of all sizes — and where both fans and the performers must be of legal age to participate.”
LALExpo’s support “sends a very powerful message,” Henning continued, “and helps establish its promoters among the upper echelon of industry leaders. Through their generosity, ASACP is able to reach a much broader audience of front-line operators, providing them with the education and valuable free resources they need to keep minors out of and away from adult-oriented content, and in turn, help make the global internet a safer, more family-friendly place.”
In related news, Henning and ASACP will return to the InterNext B2B Expo in Las Vegas later this month.
