Each year, CCBill is proud to present The Phoenix Forum, which has become the #1 exclusive industry trade event for online entertainment. The show connects a diverse blend of content producers, broadcast studios, paysite programs, talent/models, service providers, advertisers and affiliates, to simply do business together in an intimate, private venue.
Unique for a payments provider to promote, CCBill produces The Phoenix Forum as a complete show designed specifically for the needs, goals and unique challenges the business community in the industry and after months of speaking with our peers and friends, our schedule combines a complete menu of educational sessions, fun networking opportunities, coordinated meetings and tailored gatherings.
What Makes This Year Even More Special
Driving education has always been a key highlight of The Phoenix Forum, and this year is no different. Our strategic industry sessions and star-studded round-tables provide the perfect focus on important topics and current affairs affecting our business. New this year, we welcome some new tracks sponsored by top players in Affiliate Traffic, as well as our new business tracks specifically tailored for Cam Pros in all segments.
But It's Not All Business
The Phoenix Forum is popular for its generosity, food, bars, food, pool, education, food, and business. Did we mention food? However, with all the connections our attendees make make they will have no option but to do business at The Phoenix Forum. If you choose to attend The Phoenix Forum we have also arranged a series of events to connect you with new opportunities.
Years of experience bring about specially tailored events for all tastes. Get more traffic from Affiliate Day, and connect with the front of the camera in the Live Cam Business Tracks. The always-packed Back-to-Basics Sessions, our Affiliate Day, Panels and Seminars, Cam Performers and of course the popular CCBill Lab (where you can meet dozens of CCBill Integration Partners) present opportunities for connections everywhere.
This year, we are kicking off the weekend under the stars with a big community bash on opening night. Break out your best white attire and join our Noche en Blanco (Night on White) Opening Party. Food, drink, dancing and Latin performance paired with the best people in the business – you!
After a long, cold winter for most, you know you need some time in the sun. This year, break out your sunscreen and spend your Saturday under the shade of your cabana or sipping a cocktail with some of the leading industry connections at the Pool Day on Saturday.
We know the right way to mix business with pleasure.
