YNOT Cammunity Frequently Asked Questions

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


When and where does YNOT Cammunity take place?

YNOT Cammunity 2023 returns to the W Hollywood Hotel, conveniently located right in the heart of Hollywood, California.  Recommended arrival day is Sunday, August 6th, with various welcome activities planned for that afternoon and evening; expect full days of seminars and networking on the 7th and 8th. Then on the 9th 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 register for a pass to the show?

New for 2023, YNOT Events is now offering all tickets through YNOT’s proprietary YNOTID.com system. This is now the only place to register for the show.

Just login at www.ynotid.com (free to make an account if you don’t already have one), then click “My Tickets” on the left, select the “YNOT Cammunity 2023” option from the list, then click “Get Tickets” to finish your order.

If you have a code for a “Friend Pass” from someone else, you can enter that code at the top before clicking “Get Tickets” and your Friend Pass option will then show up.

What is the YNOT Cammunity Code of Conduct?

Every attendee must respect commonsense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, and common courtesy. YNOT holds a zero-tolerance policy for harassing or offensive behavior of any kind, and any non-consensual touching of other attendees is strictly prohibited. Public nudity or sexual contact is not allowed at YNOT Cammunity. Drugs and/or outside alcohol are not allowed in event spaces. Smoking (including vaping) is also prohibited, except in any designated areas. No weapons of any kind are allowed anywhere at this event.

Personal photography is allowed, but respect the wishes of any attendee who does not want to be photographed. Professional photographers who want to cover the event must be credentialed by YNOT.

YNOT reserves the right to revoke, without refund, the badge of any attendee not in compliance with this policy.

Participants finding themselves in a situation where they feel unsafe, or who witnesses another attendee violating this policy, should immediately locate a YNOT Cammunity security or staff member so that the matter can be handled in an expeditious manner.

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 business and career development conference for the live cam and creator sectors of the adult entertainment industry.  If you work in (or with) this area of adult, YNOT Cammunity is ideal for you. If you are a model (or want to become one), this is a must-attend show.  YNOT Cammunity is an obvious choice for executives, biz dev and marketing professionals from cam networks, studios, clips stores or any other monetization platforms used by models.  Affiliates who work with Live Cam or creator 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 by design, and a Model Pass 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 any sponsor 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!


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, and please note to get the cheapest rooms you need to select the “Run of House” option.

When should I arrive and when should I check out?

When making your hotel reservations, plan to arrive on August 6th by 3pm at the latest. You can schedule your check-out for the morning of August 10th 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.


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. (Please note a free Speaker Pass does not come with the “Bring a Friend Free” benefits provided by the Model Pass and Cam Star 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. Some sessions may be recorded, and there will be photographers around and other attendees sharing event pictures online, so keep that in mind.
