Parties & Events 2021
Miami in May is… hot. But at EXPO 2021, things will get even hotter at night with the parties and special events planned for the 29th EXPO at the InterContinental Hotel, May 23-26.
With three days packed full of Staff Training Seminars, a Keynote Address, the Legal & Marketing Panels, and a two-day, 120-booth Tradeshow, it’s clear that the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO is about doing business. But it’s also about having a great time! As is the case each year, EXPO 2021 will be packed with evening events, parties and the Annual ED’s Awards Show, all designed to allow attendees to network, get caught up with old friends, make new friends and ... PARTY!
Parties and Events for EXPO 2021!
The first-ever, one-night-only EDI Finals! The top four finalists from the most recent EDI contests— Shar Zayn, Natasha Nova, Justice and Janine Jericho— will compete on Sunday, May 23, at Tootsie’s Cabaret by performing competition-level shows for the judges and EXPO attendees. The top two scoring entertainers will move on to perform during the ED Awards Show on Tuesday, May 25, at the Grand Ballroom inside the InterContinental Hotel. And at the conclusion of the ED Awards Show, the winner of the first-ever EDI’s Overall Entertainer of the Year will be announced.
“To have four amazing EDI showgirls competing on the stage of one of the top gentlemen’s clubs in the entire US — Tootsie’s Cabaret — is going to be very exciting for all of us,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher Dave Manack, who is also the founder and co-producer of the Annual EDI East & West contests. “Finally, our EXPO attendees can see what a real competition-level EDI show is all about. Prepare to be stunned by these performances!”
Enjoy the view of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean in Miami at EXPO 20/21's Opening Night Sunset Party. A scenic outdoor landscape and vibrant music will greet EXPO attendees from 7-10 pm on Monday, May 24, as we kick the EXPO off in true Miami style right on property at the InterContinental Miami Hotel.
The EXPO's Opening Sunset Party will also present the first-ever Feature Entertainer Spelling Bee! Several of the industry's top features will compete in a very "unique" (i.e. totally appropriate for the strip club industry) spelling contest, where the winner receives a feature booking courtesy of The Pony Clubs' Jerry Westlund!
After-Party: Complimentary bus transportation (limited seating) will take EXPO attendees to the "After-Party" at Tootsie's Cabaret (150 NW 183rd St, Miami, FL) as the party continues from 10:30 pm until ... who knows?!

2021 Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show
Presented in a Brand Partnership with Patron Tequila
May 25, 2021, 9-11 pm (reception 8-9 pm)
ED Publications has announced an entirely different approach to the ED Awards Show in 2021, which will be held on-site in the Grand Ballroom at the InterContinental Hotel Miami. The ED Awards Show is presented in Brand Partnership with Patron Tequila on May 25 and will be hosted by comedian and actor Jimmy Shubert. And, for the first time ever, the ED Awards Show is FREE for registered attendees (a "ticket" will be given out with EXPO badges).
Eschewing such typical categories as “Club of the Year West Region” or “International Club of the Year” (since many adult clubs have been closed or only open partially for over a year), ED Publications has created eight new award titles, all of which will be presented during the 23rd Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show. ED’s Overall Feature Entertainer of the Year — will also have an entirely different approach. Four features — Natasha Nova, Justice, Shar Zayn and Janine Jericho — will compete on Sunday, May 23, at the world-famous Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami for a one-night-only, winner-take-all final. These performances will be full, competition-level shows, and the top two scorers will be invited to perform during the ED Awards Show. The presentation of EDI Entertainer of the Year Award will conclude the Awards Show.
Show staging is being produced by Luna Reps & AVLInnovations, two leading sound and lighting production companies.
Tickets for the ED Awards Show are FREE!
