ASACP Set for 2021 XBIZ Show, Will Discuss UGC, Online Child Protection

LOS ANGELES (January 8, 2021) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce its participation in the 2021 XBIZ Show.

Set for January 11-14, the all-new virtual edition of the XBIZ Show unleashes the newest installment in a trilogy of virtual conferences, concluding a trifecta of global opportunities for deal-making, learning, and networking that began in 2020 by offering a socially-safe and world-traveler-accessible option for its famed Miami, Berlin and now Hollywood gatherings.

ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning will participate in the breakthrough event.

“ASACP has attended the XBIZ Show since its inception,” Henning said. “This popular event attracts an elite audience of stakeholders allowing ASACP to reach numerous decision-makers who can make a real difference in protecting children online.”

“The XBIZ Show covers all segments of the adult industry, providing a broad range of opportunities for spreading our message,” Henning explained. “It is a great way for ASACP to begin its yearly fundraising and sponsorship drives, and to engage different audiences than we might at other events.”

Among the highlights of ASACP’s presence at the 2021 XBIZ Show, Henning will present a workshop on Monday, January 11, from 5-6 p.m., exploring how companies can better protect themselves from risks associated with user-generated content (UGC), tackling the subject from a child protection standpoint. The presentation will feature a message from Roi Carthy, CMO of the association’s newest Title Sponsor, L1ght.com.

Henning will also discuss the topic during a workshop hosted by premier online billing company Segpay, on Tuesday, January 12, from 5-6 p.m., focused on “Best Practices for Managing User Uploaded Content,” examining how UGC and child protection are impacting the payment processing space for website operators and app publishers.

Finally, Henning will participate in the annual “State of the Industry” panel on Wednesday, January 13, from 5-6 p.m., examining the trends shaping the future of adult digital media, including renewed threats of an escalating “War on Porn,” and the huge responsibility that companies in this marketspace face in regards to protecting minors.

In addition, Henning hopes to meet with current and prospective sponsors in XBIZ’s Virtual Business Lounge, where he will be available to discuss how modern media and service providers can do their part to further online child protection — and why it is so important to support the association today.

ASACP will also receive prominent exposure on the event website and media coverage, providing valued recognition for the association at this elite gathering of adult industry professionals.

“XBIZ’s longtime support of the association helps us carry out our mission,” Henning explained. “This support combined with that of our sponsors enables various initiatives, including the development of the Restricted To Adults website meta label and international TipLine, proving the adult industry is truly a responsible partner in keeping children out of and away from age-inappropriate material.”

“Held in a virtual setting where barriers to travel are eliminated, the 2021 XBIZ Show is the ideal venue for meeting with industry stakeholders that may not otherwise be able to visit Hollywood, broadening the range of business owners and operators that we can reach,” Henning concluded. “This is an unprecedented opportunity to spread our message as we respond to the evolving nature of online child protection and the many challenges that this new technological era presents.”
