The Gay Forum At The Phoenix Forum


The Phoenix Forum


After what has been a very long winter, its time to head to the bright Arizona desert sun to not only warm your business soul but also inspire new vision for 2018. Break out your hotness and register for the top business show catering to our gay market at CCBill’s annual business tradeshow, The Phoenix Forum.

We Bring the Fun, You Bring the Fabulous

The show is designed to bring the industry together and promote business opportunities for every aspect of the market in a friendly and fun environment, and will last from March 22-25, 2018 in Tempe, Arizona. Bringing a mix of intense networking events, such as our renowned Sponsor Meet & Greet, our Gay Forum Welcome Party, the show is designed to spark a smile, and energize new business connections. Meet up with old friends and industry royalty at the Cybersocket Party, and then recover Saturday by the pool, with the top industry leaders, award-winning talent, and some rather revealing swimwear.

Weekend With The Boys

The non-stop networking and educational events will energize your business, but we want your body... to keep going as well. Join the boys for a power shake in the Gay Spot Lounge, or loiter in the Snack Shacks for endless goodies, including the famous ice cream carts and warm cookies. To energize your mind, attend one of our diverse panels or industry roundtables - and see why The Phoenix Forum continues to be an all-inclusive adult industry show for gay and non-gay alike.
