2019 EXPO | August 11-14

 

Exhibitor Info 2019

EXPO generic logo 2019
The 27th Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO convention and tradeshow will be held  August 11-14, 2019 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The backbone of the Annual EXPO is the Tradeshow which runs on days one and two (Monday and Tuesday) of the EXPO; with management workshops, panel sessions, and evening events all three days: Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

In keeping with the industry that we cover, there is a very casual, party-like atmosphere to the Tradeshow—think cocktails, music and constant activity throughout.  To reserve your Tradeshow booth space, please call Kris Kay or Caroline Ashe at the ED Publications offices at (727) 726-3592.

“I’ve been to all of the EXPOs and this year showed a real upturn in quality buyers. As a ATM vendor we can face some serious competition in the market but this year we saw some great traffic on both days of the tradeshow. We’re looking forward to seeing where exactly EXPO will be next year.”

We Give Our Club EXPO Exhibitors More Than Just Booth Space

When a vendor makes some great sales at the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, the only one happier than the vendor is us.
And for a selfish reason. A vendor who makes sales at an industry tradeshow is going to come back to that tradeshow. Which is why we at ED Publications go the extra mile to get as much attention as possible from club owners, general managers and other buyers for those companies that exhibit at EXPO. Here are just a few ways we do it:
