CCBill Reports Another Successful Phoenix Forum for 2017

TEMPE, Arizona—Host sponsor CCBill took stock after The Phoenix Forum 2017 concluded, and shared some information about the show, its sponsors, and the 2017 attendees. The annual event brings together a large number of global professionals within the adult digital, live cam, dating and pleasure products industries, for four days of business, networking, and education in sunny Phoenix.

Though rumors were circulating that the 2017 show’s numbers were down, possibly due to concerns with the increased scrutiny on inbound U.S. travel, The Phoenix Forum reported that its 2017 attendance remained 100 percent steady with The Phoenix Forum 2016 show traffic. The team sees that as both a positive indicator that the adult digital entertainment industry remains strong as well as the value of The Phoenix Forum for show sponsors and attendees.

New at The Phoenix Forum, CCBill launched its CCBill Lab concept, inviting show attendees to meet with some of their key software, content and business partners from the CCBill Integration Partners program for demos and presentations. The CCBill Integration Partner program connects CCBill merchants looking to launch or expand their current business offering, with leading-edge technology and business services providers. CCBill made a point of thanking the Integration Partners who participated in the CCBill Lab: TrafficHausPinnacle CartPayGardenNATSHoloFilm Productions7 VeilsYNOT MailAdult SiteRunner2000Charge and Quantox.  Because of the positive response, CCBill now plans to take its CCBill Lab on the road to a few of the upcoming global industry trade events in 2017 to share its Payments-as-a-Service solution options and support the ongoing business needs of CCBill merchants.

Another aspect of The Phoenix Forum is the support that attendees and sponsors give back to the overall adult community. The Phoenix Forum's 13th annual Charity Golf Tournament, presented by X2K, took place at this year’s event and once again raised important dollars for the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection, a non-profit organization dedicated to online child protection.

As always, The Phoenix Forum 2017 would not have been possible without generous support for its 2017 show from sponsored events and media sponsors, including the following sponsors:

Premium Sponsors: ImLive and XBIZ.

Platinum Sponsors: ASACP, AVN, BongaCash, Cavecreek, Datetronix, Flirt4Free, Gamma Entertainment, Humboldt Merchant Services, ModelCentro, VIPOffers and WTS.

“Year after year, The Phoenix Forum is focused on delivering a premier business experience for our entire industry,” said Gary Jackson, managing VP of sales at CCBill. “While we are known for our fun events and sometimes crazy parties, when you consider the educational benefit of our seminars and roundtables, the number of people who participate in face-to-face business meetings, not to mention the magic of networking that takes place throughout the three-day event, the value of The Phoenix Forum stands solid.”

As soon as the 2017 Forum wrapped, work began on The Phoenix Forum 2018. The event will take place Wednesday, March 21 through Sunday, March 25, 2018, at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel in Tempe, Arizona.
