Best Adult Awards a Hit
by: Company Press Release
(QUEBEC, ONTARIO) -- It was a flurry of traded business cards and appointments, shaken hands, expert seminars, and snapped photos and g-strings. It was an adult tradeshow. It was the first Qwebec Expo.
But the heart of the Expo, Michel Plante's brainchild and labor of love, was the Best Adult Awards. Created to honor the Best Adult Webmasters and Websites, the ceremony was literally held together by Plante, who is also CEO of 3XWebDesign.com. Plante's sweat and dedication were in evidence from beginning to end.
Though the beginning of the Saturday, September 4th show was a little shaky, what with the display on-screen not quite matching the nominees being listed off by presenter Eric of GammaBucks.com, it was soon fixed and the rest went smoothly. Part of the fun came from presenters being called from among audience-members to read out nominees and present awards in a display of communal camaraderie and support at flubs and unrehearsed jokes.
Together, hosts Malezia and Chuck V, she with her stunning looks and he with his smooth demeanor, as well as DJ Franco Fabi and live rock band Zone 51, elevated the show to a professional sheen and pace.
2Much.net founder Mark Prince, one of the show sponsors and nominees, was there. "It wasn't a huge expo," he said. "But because the Internext just happened and Labour Day weekend is upon us, the Expo came off amazingly well, against rough odds. Michel did an incredible job. And it was very productive. It's going to happen again, and become an important show."
Though Plante has said there will be another BAA next year, it is still too early to announce the date. A full list of Best Adult Award winners , which was also sponsored by Tag Network, EarnCoin and Ynot Masters, is expected shortly.
