YNOT Cammunity Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions, and we (hopefully) have answers.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

When and where does YNOT Cammunity take place?

YNOT Cammunity returns to the W Hollywood Hotel in 2022, so we’re happening right in the heart of the US entertainment industry.  The arrival day will be October 10th with various activities planned throughout the day; expect full days of seminars and networking on the 11th and 12th. Then on the 13th there will be light activities in the daytime followed by the YNOT Cam Awards event at Avalon Hollywood in the evening, which is a block away.

How do I get one of those cool YNOT Cammunity hoodies I've seen before?

Those are provided as a special benefit to people who purchase a Cam Star Pass, and that’s the only way to get one.

Who should attend YNOT Cammunity?

YNOT Cammunity is a professional development conference created for anyone with an interest in the live webcam and clips/creator sectors of the adult entertainment industry, but it is especially intended for models and creators.  If you are a model (or want to become one), this show is definitely for you.  YNOT Cammunity is an obvious choice for executives from cam networks, studios, clips stores or any other monetization platforms used by models.  Affiliates who work with Live Cam or Clips platforms, or who are interested in monetizing traffic through these businesses, will find YNOT Cammunity to be valuable.  The show is also a good match for executives from peripheral services, such as billing solutions, web hosts, technical service providers, etc.

I am a model already, can I get in for free?

Show passes for models are very low cost, which gets you access to the whole show.  Additionally, if you purchase a pass, you can bring a friend with you for free. If you need a free pass and you already work as a model then you can ask sponsors for a code redeemable for one free pass, but it’s at their discretion if they want to provide that to you and they may require you to have an account with their platform.

I am not a model yet, but want to be. What do I have to pay to attend?

Your best bet is to grab a Model Pass at a very low cost, which gets you access to the whole show.  You can optionally reach out to one of our sponsors since they have codes they can share with models that are redeemable for a free pass. However they may require you to be an active model on their platform before they provide you with a code.

I'm a webmaster or affiliate who has attended shows like Internext, TES Affiliate Conferences or YNOT Reunion before. Should I attend this?

If you have any professional connection to the live cam or clips/creator side of the business, absolutely. Join us!

COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

Is proof of vaccination required?

You will need to supply EITHER proof of current vaccination (last dose no more than 6 months prior to arrival) OR a recent negative Covid test (taken no more than 48 hours prior to arrival). We care about the safety of everyone who attends YNOT events, so this step is for our collective safety. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. There are testing locations all around Hollywood if you need to go that route.

Is one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine enough?

If you are supplying vaccination proof (as opposed to a negative Covid test), then your last dose must be no more than six months prior to arrival. As long as you can meet that requirement you’re fine, otherwise you can supply a recent negative Covid test instead.

Can I present a recent negative COVID-19 test instead of vaccination proof?

Yes, you can. The test needs to be completed no more than 48 hours prior to arrival, and there are plenty of testing locations around Hollywood if you need to test after you arrive in the city.

Will I be required to wear a mask?

Only if the venue requires it at the time of the event, otherwise this will be your choice. If you would like to wear a mask we encourage you to do so.

Is a recent negative COVID-19 test required in addition to vaccination proof?

Only one or the other will be required.

HOTEL QUESTIONS

Can I get discounted rooms at the W Hollywood?

No joke: discounted rooms are available on a first-come first-served basis. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. We highly recommend that you grab your room(s) as soon as they’re available. Check out out Hotel Information Page for more details.

When should I arrive and when should I check out?

When making your hotel reservations, plan to arrive on October 10th by 3pm at the latest. You can schedule your check-out for the morning of October 14th if you’re attending the YNOT Cam Awards.

Do I have to stay at the W Hollywood?

Not at all.  However, if you need a place to stay, we highly recommend staying at the W.  First, staying where the action is will make it a lot easier for you to enjoy the show.  You can easily drop stuff off in your room, run up to change as needed, and enjoy other venue specific benefits and access.  Second, the more our attendees stay at our venue, the lower the prices we can get for everyone in the future, so you’re showing support for YNOT Cammunity by staying at the W.  Third, we chose the W partially for its location and partially because it really is one of the nicest hotels in Hollywood, so we think you’ll enjoy your stay. W Hollywood is an adult-friendly venue and we greatly appreciate the respect they’ve shown our industry.

I'm having trouble affording a room, what can I do?

If you’re on a very tight budget we recommend you try one of these two things: 1) Find a friend who’s willing to share a room with you, which can cut your costs in half. 2) You can check airbnb.com or other nearby accommodations that might offer a lower price than the W Hollywood. At the time of writing this, airbnb.com has many options in Hollywood that are under $100/night, just please be safe and have a transportation plan in place.

SPEAKER QUESTIONS

How many other speakers will be on my session panel?

This depends on the session.  In some cases a presentation will be handled by just one speaker, however with most panels there will be a range of 4 to 6 speakers. If you need more detailed information about the number of speakers on your specific panel, please contact YNOT through our contact form.

When should I show up?

We ask all featured speakers to arrive at their room at least 15 mins before the start of your session.  This will save your moderator a lot of stress!  If you are arriving at YNOT Cammunity just prior to your session, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get to the W Hollywood (accounting for that LA traffic), as well as time to get parked and pick up your badge. Obviously if you’re staying at the W Hollywood, this makes things a lot easier.

Do I get a free badge for being a speaker?

Yes!  All featured speakers are extended a free pass to the event.  This will get you into all parties and activities at YNOT Cammunity itself, but please note that YNOT Cammunity and YNOT Cam Awards are separate events so if you want to attend YNOT Cam Awards please check that website for details.  Check with YNOT for your complimentary code redeemable for your free Speaker pass.

What's the format for sessions at YNOT Cammunity?

For most sessions, there will be a moderator who will be asking questions of the panel and fielding questions from the audience.  Your moderator will contact you about a week or two before the event to help you get familiar with the panel’s format.  So you will have a chance to raise any questions or concerns with the moderator well before YNOT Cammunity starts.

What time is my session and where is it?

Session times and locations will be added to the official Show Schedule as soon as they are locked in (check back later if you still see the schedule from the prior year’s event).  Your moderator will also go over this information with you about a week or two prior to the show.

How should speakers dress?

YNOT Cammunity is a ‘business casual’ to ‘casual’ type event, so you should dress comfortable.  Some speakers will be wearing business attire, while others will be wearing jeans and t-shirts.  If you are a performer with an online persona, note that YNOT Cammunity is not open to fans, so please project whatever image you’d like to project to fellow models and industry executives. However some sessions may be recorded, and there will be photographers around and other attendees sharing event pictures online, so keep that in mind.
