Hard Rock Casino • Las Vegas • August 27-30 2017
ED Publications announces key details for their 25th Anniversary Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, slated for August 27-30, 2017,
at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas
For immediate release: It’s where the first Gentlemen’s Club EXPO was held in 1993. It’s the city that the EXPO called home 20 times out of the past 24 years. With the EXPO celebrating its Silver Anniversary in 2017, it made all the sense in the world to bring it back “home,” to Sin City, for the 25th Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, August 27-30, 2017.
This time, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, with its brand new convention area, will play host to the multi-billion-dollar industry’s only national convention and awards show. The brand new, 12-page 25th EXPO brochure is currently available for view at www.theEDexpo.com, the convention’s official website.
“While this is just the ‘first look’ at this year’s Silver-Anniversary EXPO, there’s already a lot to be excited about,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher and EXPO Co-Producer, Dave Manack. “We’ve announced two big ‘returns’ — the return of the $10,000 EXPO Bikini Contest, thanks to event sponsor Platinum 84 in Denver, and the return of the big EXPO Tradeshow Mainstage, thanks to sponsor Sound Stage Systems.”
The new brochure also presents all of this year’s “Welcome to the Future” seminar topics, including the “Government relationships you need for your club’s future,” which will include a former police chief, congressman and state liquor board member. The EXPO Legal Panel will also address the industry’s most crucial issue today: What you NEED to know if you’re considering converting your entertainers to employees.
ED Publications, which has produced the EXPO since the first show in ‘93 at the (now-defunct) Stardust Hotel & Casino, is also proud to note that next year’s EXPO will play host to the 20th Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show—aka, the ED’s Awards Show—the only national awards show for the top adult nightclubs and feature entertainers. This year’s ED’s Awards Show will be held inside the Hard Rock at The Joint Theater on Tuesday, August 29th.
Exciting Hard Rock Hotel & Casino venues will play host to EXPO 2017 events, including Vanity (which will host the Opening Night Party), The Joint Theater and the Breathe Pool Ultra Lounge (which will host the "Chill Day" Pool Party & Bikini Contest).

Each time we poll attendees for the number-one reason why they come to the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, the answer that comes back more often than any other is, “To see old friends, meet new ones, and come together as an industry.” It’s the one time of year the entire adult nightclub industry comes together for three days of business and pleasure. From the Tradeshow to the seminars to the ACE National meeting to the parties, there are many networking opportunities at EXPO for everyone who makes their living in the adult nightclub industry. If you’ve never been, it’s almost a guarantee that “networking” is the reason why you’ll keep coming back. It’s an opportunity you won’t find anywhere else, ever!
While there are no “Strip Club 101” courses being offered at any colleges or universities around the country, the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO presents three days of educational seminars for attendees on a wide variety of subjects. These include: Marketing, bar sales, entertainer relations, new products, industry trends, legal issues, social media, management & leadership, DJ training, feature bookings, food sales, modern technology and so much more! The bottom line is, if you come to the EXPO ready to learn, you will leave the EXPO with ideas that you can bring back with you to improve your club, your career or both.
The Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO is celebrating a true milestone—25 years! But this silver anniversary isn’t simply a pat on the back for ED Publications. It’s a milestone that every single club owner, club operator, club staffer, feature entertainer and industry professional should take pride in. The 25th Anniversary EXPO, at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, will be one an entire industry will remember for years to come. The EXPO is a celebration of the industry at large. It represents the opportunity for all of us to come together as one, to share ideas, to shake hands, to get better at what we do. And of course, we have a great time along the way! In 2017, it's time to celebrate!
