Here's why you can't miss EXPO 2023... IT'S THE BIG 30! EXPO 2023 attendees can count on three days of must-attend seminars and panel sessions geared toward club owners, general managers, DJs, security staff and other key club personnel; two days of a 120-booth Tradeshow with vendors showcasing their latest products and services; the Opening Night "Kick-Off" Party and Pre-ED Awards presentation; the EXPO "Chill Day" and Bikini Contest; and the Annual ED's Awards Show, the only national awards show honoring the industry’s top adult nightclubs and feature entertainers.

“It’s important to support ED Magazine and the EXPO. ED brings information to light and tries to help everybody in our industry because when people in our industry do things the right way, it reflects on everybody. When they do it wrong, it also reflects on everybody. If we don’t support EXPO, we won’t have an industry.” —  Curtis Wise
