XBIZ is publisher of business news and information for the adult industry, well known for hosting multiple exhibitions, conferences, and award shows. It also facilitates networking among adult professionals online through a B2B professional networking service.
XBIZ Miami is organized by XBIZ to connect the global community and offer fresh perspectives on business practices, trends, and technologies shaping the future of adult entertainment. As a flagship event for a company that holds a variety of events frequently, XBIZ needed a powerful platform for their virtual event to meet attendees’ expectations and maintain XBIZ’s reputation as the top trade publication for the adult industry.
Due to COVID-19 and the subsequent restrictions on in-person events, XBIZ Miami 2021 required shifting to a virtual venue. After multiple negative experiences with other virtual event platforms, the organizers were wary of solutions available in the market.
They needed a solution that would allow them to brand the entire event experience, host several workshops seamlessly, provide multiple networking options, and connect exhibitors and attendees with each other. And they needed it to be reliable.
After detailed discussions with the Hubilo team and several demo rounds, the organizing team not only selected Hubilo to host XBIZ Miami 2021, but also signed an annual contract with Hubilo to deliver all upcoming virtual events.
As a result of this partnership, XBIZ Miami 2021 was a huge success. The event feed was well received by the attendees, featuring a high volume of shout-outs, introductions, and discussions. They utilized the directories and matchmaking facility to exchange chat messages and schedule one-on-one meetings. Attendees also took part in various educational seminars and happy hours, resulting in over 8,000 session views. Similarly, the 30 plus virtual booths and networking lounges were extensively used by exhibitors to interact with their prospects and customers.
