Free Speech Coalition, the national trade organization for the adult industry, will hold its second annual Leadership Conference on January 17, 2019 at the Andaz Hotel. The conference will be bringing in outside experts to address four major issues facing the industry in 2019: banking discrimination, HIV law, the 2257 court battle, and the new age-verification regulations in the UK.
“The Leadership Conference is a way for industry leaders to directly address, question and learn from the policy makers, powerbrokers and experts whose decisions impact our lives,” said Eric Paul Leue, Executive Director of Free Speech Coalition. “We had a packed house for our premiere event last year.”
This year’s speakers will include J. Michael Murray, lead counsel in the suit against 2257 regulations; G2’s Dave Landis, who will speak on new banking and billing regulations; Lambda Legal’s Scott Schoettes, who will speak on HIV discrimination law; and Murray Perkins, of the British Board of Film Classification, who will provide updates on the UK’s new age-verification legislation finally scheduled to take effect this spring.
The conference will take place at the Andaz West Hollywood, 8401 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069 in Studio 4 on the second floor. The conference will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. More information is available here.
