First look at the 25th Anniversary EXPO!

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.

2017 EXPO Brochure Page 01“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).

Three reasons you can’t miss the 25th Anniversary Gentlemen’s Club EXPO

  • industry2 v2a

    It’s the entire industry in one place

    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!

  • learn2 v2a

    It’s your chance to learn

    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.

  • celebrate2 v2a

    It’s your chance to celebrate!

    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!

Register for EXPO 2017!

What they are saying about EXPO 2016

  • “We look forward to the EXPO every year to see our friends, to continue building strong relationships and to meet new club owners. The EXPO is like no other! Lots of entertainment, an incredible amount of sharing great knowledge and tools for club owners, encouraging and celebrating accomplishments with Awards Show night. For club owners, this show is a must!” — Marsha Long, Alpha Patterned Carpets, GA

  • “We felt EXPO was a great success. We all enjoyed our time with everyone. We have potential licensing agreements from our exposure at the trade show. We are looking to expand the Babe’s brand and the EXPO has played a tremendous part in helping us develop and market the Babe’s Cabaret brand.” — Charles, Jordan and Darren Bass, Babe’s NOLA, LA and NJ
  • “I enjoyed the show. It was my first time. I believe my presentation was well received. I already have more than 50 contacts that I followed up with as a result of receiving their business card at the show. It has been fruitful.”  — Trevor Estelle, TIPS, VA
  • “The EXPO was great for us. A week out and we’ve more than doubled our previous best client sign up. Looking forward to the home cooking of Vegas next year.”  — Duffy Franclemont, J Dog Media, FL
  • “We hope that you bring the dancers competition back onto the trade show floor or do something to give the attendees a reason to come into the exhibit hall, especially on the second day. We are looking forward to the show again next year and we plan to exhibit as we have for most of the past 20-plus years.”  — Paul Artt, QnC, Dallas
  • “Love the entire event. From the PANDA party pre-EXPO to bowling. This year was my second year and I learned so much. I didn’t go to as many DJ panels because I wanted to learn more about other areas and I did. It was great!”  — Jerry Butler, The Ritz, Houston
  • “Thoroughly enjoyed my first EXPO experience. I came back refreshed, with new ideas, new contacts and an enthusiasm to get back to work.”  — Jay Hatch, Paradise Found, Syracuse, NY
  • “A House Mom Seminar next year would be great, teaching the skills of this business from a house moms’ view. Also a seminar on being a better manager from the time you walk in the door to the time you lock up. I’d like to know what other managers do when there for a shift, i.e. walk the floor, run to walk in, pick up after waitresses, paperwork, social media.”  — Eric Anthony, Rhode Island Dolls, RI
  • “I always enjoy the EXPO. I get to see people I know, and I always meet new people.”  — Myles Shaffer, AINews.com
  • “The learning opportunities at EXPO are fabulous if you go in with that as your goal.”  — Kira Mundhenk, Double Visions, Horsham, PA
  • “Fantastic networking with other ACE chapters, the club owners and attorneys. Thanks for bringing COAST training to EXPO!”  — Jill Chambers, Goodtime Emporium, Atlanta
  • “I’d like to see lighting systems for clubs and live events on the trade show floor.”  — Jeremy Sweigert, Teasers, Jamme Holdings, PA
  • “More seminars on bar revenue and bartender and server training, and live entertainment on a stage in the trade show.”  —Shon Boulden, Devil’s Point, Portland, OR
