ASACP Set to Attend London’s XBIZ EU Event

LOS ANGELES (Sep. 12, 2013) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is delighted to announce its return to London for the annual XBIZ EU conference, scheduled for September 22-25 at the luxurious Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Hotel.

According to its producers, XBIZ EU brings together digital media executives from around the globe for three days of unparalleled symposiums, networking, deal-making opportunities and more. XBIZ EU attracts adult website operators and affiliates, plus content producers and a wide range of service providers in the interactive, mobile, IPTV, traffic and billing sectors, who learn about the hottest profit centers in the European, American and international arenas.

It is a perfect venue for ASACP to deliver its message of how responsible media companies can protect themselves by protecting children.

The promoters of XBIZ EU have kindly included ASACP among the show’s sponsors, providing the association with premium banner placement, an exhibition table at the popular Mix and Meet session, an ad in the event’s show guide, an insert in the show’s “swag bags,” and complimentary event registration.

ASACP’s U.K.-based Director of European Outreach, Vince Charlton, will attend the event as part of the association’s global outreach program, which seeks in part to carry the message of industrial self-regulation to relevant stakeholders. For example, ASACP’s services such as the Restricted To Adults (RTA) website meta-labeling program, market specific “Best Practices” and adherence to a strict Code of Ethics, allow participants to protect children on the Internet.

“Given the recent restrictions on Internet access by the U.K. government, XBIZ EU will be center stage for the formulation of the industry’s response, as well as a proving ground for a range of alternative solutions to the problem of minor’s accessing adult oriented materials,” Charlton states. “It’s important for ASACP to have a voice in these discussions and to educate businesses about what they can do today to help prevent similar restrictions from taking hold in other countries.”

“These companies’ livelihoods are at stake because not enough has been done to protect kids online,” Charlton adds. “It’s time for us to change that situation, and ASACP is here to help.”
