ST. LOUIS, MO – Nix Conference & Meeting Management of St. Louis was honored this week by ECPAT-USA as a Top Member of The Code to fight sex trafficking. Named for the second year in a row, Nix is among just 19 companies in the U.S. honored by ECPAT-USA as Top Members of The Code “for their exceptional work to integrate child protection practices into their businesses in 2015.”
For the past five years, Nix has led the charge among meeting planners worldwide to help end sex trafficking in hotels. The social action organization they founded, Exchange Initiative, recently released a new, free mobile app called TraffickCam, which enables travelers to anonymously photograph hotel rooms and upload data to a national database that will be used by law enforcement and investigators to locate victims and their pimps. The app has been downloaded nearly 70,000 times in the past two weeks.
Nix presented the national conference “IGNITE: Sparking Action Against Sex Trafficking” in 2014 and initiated and signed the first-ever Meeting Planners Code of Conduct with ECPAT-USA in January, 2012. Their staff members address the trafficking issue with the management of every hotel where they do business.
