The 11th Annual Cybernet Expo will be held this year in San Francisco, June 10th through the 12th. The Expo runs in June of every year and is the longest running adult internet trade show in the business, according to LAJ, Vice President of show operator YNOT.
''Anyone currently working in or with an interest in working in any facet of the adult online business should attend this show'' says LAJ, adding that ''people interested in learning about the online adult business and networking with many of itsí players should also attend.''
LAJ (also Director of Operations for Cybernet Expo) and YNOT President Connor Young are producing the show since taking it over from previous operators Fay Sharp and Dave Gould, although LAJ has worked the Expo since 2003. The show will include a 3 hour exhibiting opportunity called ''Show and Sell'' on Wednesday, June 11th.
Many companies have already registered to present, including Hi Def Riches, Yappo Dollars, HotMovies, Netbilling and attorney Eric Bernstein. Pricing for exhibitors is quite low according to LAJ, encouraging potential exhibitors to take advantage of the networking opportunity.
The Expo will also include a wide variety of seminars invaluable to internet based adult businesspersons. ''We place a huge importance on the quality of the education program at Cybernet Expo'' says LAJ, noting that this year John Stagliano of Evil Angel will deliver a speech regarding EA's current legal difficulties stemming from recent government obscenity charges. The full speaker list can be found at http://www.cybernetexpo.com/exhibitors.php.
LAJ estimates the Expo (held at the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway in SF) to draw between 400 and 500 attendees and expects availability in the hotelís reserved block of rooms to be limited. Interested participants are encouraged to register through the Cybernet Expo web site as soon as possible. More tomorrow on currently registered exhibitors, after parties and the XXX Iron man Competition occurring as part of the event.
