LOS ANGELES—AVN Media Network is pleased to announce its featured speakers for the 2017 Webmaster Access show set for September 8-11 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
The Seminar Program, exclusively sponsored by StripChat, will once again focus on international business opportunities with panels devoted to exploring the profit potential in some of the largest markets in the world.
The 13th annual show will return to the Doubletree by Hilton Centraal Station located in the heart of the historic city center. The popular educational series is one of the centerpieces of the adult industry’s longest-running webmaster conference, which will host an international contingent of executives for three days of networking and parties.
Webmaster Access introduced its international track at last year’s event, spotlighting regions such as Eastern Europe, Germany, The Netherlands and North America—all of which will return in September. In addition, this year for the first time Webmaster Access will host a special session on the Japanese landscape as well as address the U.K.’s newly passed Digital Economy Act for age verification on adult sites.
Each of the discussions will feature a multinational panel of professionals representing dozens of blue-chip companies. The Seminar Program also includes special sessions targeting live cams, mobile, traffic, dating and virtual reality content production. Meanwhile, GAYVN returns to this year’s show with a panel that will dissect the biggest trends in the gay market.
The seminar lineup is as follows:
