ASACP Set for The European Summit

LOS ANGELES (Sep. 7, 2016) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce its return to Prague for The European Summit, scheduled for September 20-23, at The Park Hotel Praha.

According to its promoters, The European Summit (TES) is Europe’s leading B2B conference for the online entertainment industries, uniting a diverse group of adult and digital media operators that represent dozens of countries around the world, for networking, seminars, socializing and more.

“Being the father of a six year old boy myself, I fully understand the benefits which ASACP’s Restricted To Adults (RTA) website labeling system provides to parents with young children,” says TES’ promoter Andreas Bischoff. “Therefore we are a strong supporter of ASCAP and its goals, and would like to see our clients join forces with ASACP as well.”

For 2016, The European Summit’s producers are continuing their longtime support of the association, by providing ASACP with sponsor status, including a complimentary hotel room and show badge, plus premium banner placement, an ad in the event’s show guide, a banner on the TES homepage, as well as other exposure on the event website and an exhibitor listing in TES’ mobile event app.

ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning will attend the event to further the association’s international outreach efforts by meeting with relevant stakeholders to educate them about the ways, means and necessity of protecting children on the internet.

“The European Summit’s promoters make it possible for ASACP to reach a prominent audience of adult industry operators from both Eastern and Western Europe, and beyond,” Henning explains. “This provides the association with a unique opportunity for reaching global digital media companies and explaining how ASACP’s Restricted To Adults (RTA) website labeling system, Best Practices and a professional Code of Ethics, help businesses protect themselves by protecting children.”

ASACP is also conducting the first sponsorship campaign in its 20-year history, by reaching out to the adult industry in hopes of receiving immediate additional funding. As part of this membership drive, Henning will host a special session at TES entitled, “ASACP Needs YOUR Vital Help and Support Now!”

The informative discussion will detail how the industry’s child protection efforts protect businesses, and how responsible corporate partners can support these crucial efforts. It is set for Thursday, September 22, from 10-10:50 a.m. in the hotel’s Roomburak Seminar Room.

The sponsors of TES are among the caring companies extending their support to ASACP during the association’s current time of need, as it grapples with a smaller budget amidst the increasing costs of fulfilling its mission to keep children out of and away from adult entertainment.

Helping to spread this message at TES is the YNOT Group, which is generously supporting ASACP’s fundraising efforts through its YNOT Karting Grand Prix on Tuesday, September 20, from 6-9 p.m., and at the YNOT Awards Show, on Wednesday, September 21, from, 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., where an ASACP funding drive video will be shown.

“As always it’s a pleasure for YNOT to see ASACP at the shows and seeing the continued outpouring of industry support,” says YNOT Group, LLC co-owner Jay Kopita. “Their mission continues to be important and highly relevant after all these years in an ever-changing industry, and we greatly appreciate the work they do.”

One anonymous benefactor has fully underwritten Henning’s flights to this year’s European events, enabling him to attend these important industry events, and demonstrating how the industry takes child protection and “doing the right thing” seriously.

“In an act of true charity a very generous person has selflessly offered to be a silent sponsor for my flights,” Henning says. “This person wants no public recognition for this and we are very grateful for this crucial support at a time when we need it the most.”
