The Adult Nightclub Industry's National Convention, Tradeshow & Awards

Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino • Las Vegas • October 25-28, 2020

  • EXPO 2020 virus webEXPO 2020 dates moved to October with HALF-PRICE badges!

    New theme "Navigating the New Normal” will help clubs remain successful in the COVID world

    We are all living in unprecedented times, and we at ED Publications are well aware of what club owners, operators, staff, entertainers and other industry pros have endured over the past several months. We all deserve to get back to work, yet we want to do that in a way that is smart, safe and responsible for staff, entertainers and guests alike.

    As clubs across the country begin to open again, we at ED Publications want our 2020 Gentlemen’s Club EXPO to embrace the “new normal” that we are all trying to understand and embrace. To better serve an industry that has been effectively closed since March, we are moving the dates of EXPO to October 25-28, while remaining at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Our new EXPO dates and agenda, now dubbed “Navigating the New Normal,” will feature seminars that directly address the COVID environment clubs are dealing with today and in the weeks and months to come.

    To further serve the industry in these unprecedented times, we are also doing something unprecedented: All EXPO badges are HALF-PRICE. From now until August 15th, all EXPO badges are just $179 each!

    thumb 2020 EXPO brochure Page 1“After conducting an extensive poll of our previous EXPO attendees, we listened to the suggestions that you made,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher, Dave Manack. “In answer to those suggestions, we’ve moved the dates of the show to late October, we’ve adjusted the theme of the convention to reflect the industry’s ‘new normal,’ while significantly reducing the price of EXPO badges to help those who have been severely impacted by the COVID shutdown. Our 2020 EXPO will do what it has always done: It will help educate and prepare club operators and staff on the best ways to remain successful, as we all navigate the new normal.”

    In addition to the new seminar topics, the revised EXPO dates create new opportunities for EXPO events. This will include a special, one-time-only event, the Opening Night Halloween Party (Monday, October 25), where costumes are encouraged and cash prizes will be awarded throughout the evening. More details on EXPO events, including an updated approach to the ED’s Awards Show that will reflect this unique year, are forthcoming.

    Planet Hollywood hotel room rates remain a very low $85 per night, and coupled with the half-price ($179) badges, this makes EXPO 2020 the most affordable EXPO in history.

    To register for EXPO 2020 or for more information, call ED Publications at (727) 726-3592 or visit the official EXPO site at www.theEDexpo.com.

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

  • ED best 2019 144

    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!

  • ED best 2019 368

    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.

  • ED best 2019 461

    It’s your chance to do business and have a blast!

    The Annual Gentlemen's Club EXPO serves several functions. It brings the entire industry together. It celebrates the industry with its only national awards show. It educates the industry with informative seminars and panel sessions. It also allows club owners/operators, club staff, entertainers and industry pros to do business, as companies exhibit products and services designed for the adult nightclub industry in the EXPO Tradeshow. But of course, this is the adult nightclub industry—and the parties are just as much a part of the convention as the seminars and tradeshow. As we at ED Publications like to say, the EXPO is the most fun you'll ever have doing business. With events such as the Opening Night "Kick-Off" Party, the ED's Awards Show and After-Party, the Bikini Contest and Closing Night festivities, attendees will have a blast at EXPO!

What they are saying about EXPO

  • “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
