Proven Adult Business Models 1:15 PM - 2:00 PM The adult Internet market has changed dramatically in recent years, with consumers planted squarely in the driver's seat of the major online media markets.

Pros and Cons of .XXX Domain Names 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM If you have heard the news that ICANN has approved the creation of a .XXX sponsored-level domain name, you probably have a lot of questions. The central question to the .XXX discussion is of course whether or not to buy one.

In this informative seminar, we will take a look at the most important issues website owners need to understand before deciding whether or not to buy .XXX domain names.
Summit Games: Two Truths and a Lie 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM In a slight variation on the classic networking game, our version will pit teams of attendees against each other in a fun and entertaining way.

Tricked Out Sites: Integrating Third Party Technologies 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM Today's websites aren't just about pictures, videos and HTML; successful modern websites integrate a number of software technologies that turn static and uninspired online properties into dynamic and engaging gateways to information and entertainment.

Look for an all-new lineup of live entertainment, plus a new and more intimate atmosphere at the Kink Armory. Transportation will be provided from the Golden Gateway Hotel, so start gathering in the lobby at 7:30 for buses, sponsored by Dating Gold.
