ASACP Returns to The European Summit

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 22, 2016) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is happy to announce its return to Sitges for The European Summit (TES).

According to its promoters, The European Summit is Europe’s leading B2B conference for the online entertainment industries. Set for Feb. 29 through March 3 at the Hotel Calipolis in Barcelona, Spain, this executive gathering unites representatives from the online affiliate, billing, casual dating, domain name, mobile technology, website services and traffic arenas, with a European focus.

TES fuels stakeholder discussions of essential topics, such as the need to protect children online, and provides a vital venue where attendees can learn about the benefits and services offered by ASACP.

According to TES’ Andreas Bischoff, it is important to support ASACP, and to protect children online.

“A truly remarkable team of individuals,” Bischoff says, “ASACP should constantly receive support from our entire industry.”

Bischoff and TES pay more than lip service to this need for support, by once again providing ASACP with a display table where information about the association is available, along with prime banner placement to help raise awareness of ASACP, plus free show admission and a complimentary hotel room at the event’s venue.

Additionally, TES will host a benefit auction for ASACP on March 2, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in the hotel’s Sert Meeting Room, where two rooms at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel and admission badges to this year’s Phoenix Forum will be up for grabs, courtesy of CCBill.

Also being auctioned, courtesy of TES, are two “Meet Market” tables and an entrance pass for each table at The Latin American Summit, as well as two “Instant Promo Packages” for TES in Prague, also with one entrance pass each. Furthermore, a special promo mailer and ASACP logo projection during the auction are being given to the association by TES, underscoring the event sponsors’ generosity.  

ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning will be in attendance at the event.

“Year after year, TES has graciously supported ASACP and its mission of keeping children out of and away from adult entertainment,” Henning says. “TES helps the association educate online companies about its Restricted To Adults (RTA) website label and Child Exploitation Reporting Hotline, which is only possible through the continued support of the digital media industry, and the many companies that service it.”

Henning notes that a declining budget and quickly evolving technology complicates the association’s efforts to keep children out of harm’s way online, and forces ASACP to seek creative ways of meeting its mission, while doing more with less.

“There are many ways that companies, groups and individuals can help ASACP make a difference, as it evolves alongside a changing media industry and the new technologies it relies on,” Henning adds. “One stellar example is the generosity shown by Cam4, which is sponsoring my flight to TES, helping to make the association’s attendance at this valuable event possible.”

ASACP is also calling for additional donations from individuals or companies that can be auctioned off during the benefit auction. If you have something you would like to donate please contact ASACP.
