CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Internext is pleased to announce the seminar lineup for the annual Las Vegas trade show, which takes place Jan. 11-13 at the Palms Casino Resort.
The schedule includes Monday and Wednesday morning seminars and workshops that end by lunchtime in order to allow attendees more time to network in the exhibit hall in the Rain nightclub. Tuesday will feature a pair of Ultimate Networking opportunities—one in the morning, one in the afternoon—that build on previous speed networking events by enabling all participants to connect with one another while at the same time being served breakfast or lunch, depending on the session.
"We're going with a targeted lineup of seminars that focus on useful information that people can implement to improve the daily running of their businesses," AVN senior editor Tom Hymes said. "We're also excited to be able to offer a very timely panel on demystifying the mobile market and also the notoriously popular Adult Business Strategy Roundtable. And, of course, the speed networking events, which have become a staple for adult internet trade show attendees."

Afternoon Session: 1 p.m.-4:15 p.m. (includes lunch 2:15 p.m.-2:45 p.m.)
Take advantage of this opportunity to meet potential partners who are serious about doing business. Ultimate Networking (aka Speed Networking) is a fun and efficient way to make connections that can drastically improve your business. Sessions have been expanded to allow people not only to connect with those sitting across from them but also individuals sitting in the same row. Double the connections, double the opportunities.
Sessions also fill up fast. Advance sign-up is required, available one hour before each session. Participants who sign up must be present for the entire session. Do not schedule any overlapping meetings or activities, since walkouts throw off the effectiveness of the networking and an even number is necessary to match people up.
