ASACP Participates in QWEBEC Expo

LOS ANGELES (August 16, 2011) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce that it will participate in the upcoming QWEBEC Expo, being held August 26-28, at the Marriott Chateau Champlain in Montreal.

According to its promoters, QWEBEC-Expo is a tradeshow and technical conference serving existing and prospective online adult entertainment professionals. This annual B2B event acts as an international crossroads for U.S., Canadian and European members of the adult industry, who gather to network and learn about the latest technologies, trends, products and services.

ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning will participate in the event, moderating the New Bees Workshop and will also participate in the ethics-centered special feature presentation “Adult Industry Do’s and Don’ts,” on Friday, Aug. 26, from 11 a.m. until 12:15 p.m.

“QWEBEC Expo has always been an important event for ASACP to be involved in,” Henning stated. “The ability to have face-time with this group of global adult entertainment industry professionals is vital to the association’s international outreach program.”

Henning will also be on hand as part of the association’s commitment to engage worldwide businesses in its war to protect children on the Internet; with an information booth to accept donations and process new memberships, while offering informative handouts. ASACP will also place flyers in the attendee’s gift bags.

“We are very happy to have ASACP/RTA with us again this year. This organization really helps protecting the children, but also traces the line between the legit and honest companies in the Adult Industry, and the ugly ones who exploit children. Too many people out there put us all in the same boat, and ASACP/RTA really makes a difference,” stated Michel Plante, CEO QWEBEC Expo 2011.

“ASACP has enjoyed several recent successes, including its contribution to the takedown of the illegal Dreamboard forum — considered one of the worst CP sites ever,” Henning added. “These cases illustrate ASACP’s effectiveness at pursuing criminal websites, but there is still work to be done.”
