SWITZERLAND—Adult industry veteran Michael Plante has been named Events Manager for upstart virtual reality company, Terpon VR, and will be managing the company’s presence at all of the upcoming events.

“In our first year we learned quickly how important industry events can be for an adult company if they are utilized effectively,” said Jean-Claude Artonne, CEO of Terpon.com. “We did a lot of strategizing and testing with various events inside and outside the adult realm, and we are looking forward to a robust presence on the show schedule in 2017. Michael continues to do a great job with QwebecExpo and is attuned to what works or doesn’t at the other shows as well. His expertise will be helpful, and his strong reputation for honesty and integrity are crucial for our company as we continue to assemble all the right pieces.”

“Having been in the industry for two decades, I have seen many products come and go, so I know exactly the kind of inertia that Terpon must overcome in proving to everyone that we have the endurance and reliability to be a strong technology partner for adult companies in the webcam sector," Plante said. “After meeting with Jean-Claude and seeing the long term plans he already has in place, it’s obvious to me that Terpon will be a key component of any cam model’s career very quickly. Helping to explain that point of view with simple, truthful hands-on interaction at trade shows will be my top priority.”

Beginning with the upcoming show in Sitges, and continuing throughout the yearlong show schedule, attendees can expect to see Plante at the shows working with Terpon. The company is distributing 1,000 VR webcams to top performers for free, and deals are being signed each week by major platforms that include ModelCentro and SkyPrivate along with a number of studios.
