SAN FRANCISCO -- Cybernet Expo 2009 has announced the schedule of workshops and panel discussions for its 2009 show, set for June 25-27 at the Golden Gateway Hotel in San Francisco.
New this year will be a special classroom-style "Intensive Training Series" that will be offered along with traditional industry panels. Planned workshops and panels will cover a variety of subjects of vital interest to adult Internet businesses and feature a lineup of industry leaders.
Individual industry experts will "teach" attendees during the various training series programs, which will run from 90 minutes to two hours.
"Think of a college classroom setting with one instructor and a prepared course of study," explained Connor Young, president of YNOT Network, which owns and operates Cybernet Expo.
"We think these smaller classroom-like training workshops will be an extremely popular addition."
The Intensive Training Series will cover a variety of topics: Porn legend Dave Cummings, an experienced college-level instructor and veteran of adult video production, will teach a class on shooting and producing adult video content; Spannow, adult Internet photographer and owner of SoloBabeCash.com, will conduct a live photo shoot featuring Internet model Emily Saint from EmilySaint.com, complete with instructions on everything from shooting in cramped spaces to indoor lighting and working with models; adult industry attorney Eric M. Bernstein will cover the issue of complying with 18 USC 2257 record-keeping laws; Lisa Weinberger, an experienced Internet marketing instructor from PearlyWrites.com, will address organic traffic generation, covering topics such as search engine optimization and leveraging social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook; Web developer and marketing expert KevinG, from Web 3.0 Internet Consulting, will lead a class in website design; and industry veteran Quentin Boyer from Pink Visual has agreed to teach a session designed to introduce new arrivals to the basics of the online adult entertainment business.
Cybernet 2009 will also feature its annual "Industry Insider Series" panels, each featuring four to six expert speakers from various segments of the adult entertainment business. Topics for the Insider Series include "Techniques in Modern Adult Internet Marketing," "Online Billing: Beyond the IPSP," "Opportunities for Women in Adult Businesses," "Understanding Fetish and Niche Markets," "Writing for Adult Businesses," "Buying Adult Traffic," and "State of the Industry."
In addition to the Industry Insider and Intensive Training sessions, a couple of short special addresses will be delivered by Allan Henning, founder of DatingGold.com, and YNOT.com President Young.
Registration is open for the show, with an "early bird" rate of $99 per badge available through the end of next week, May 1.
