It wasn’t just a convention. It wasn’t just a celebration. On August 27-30, 2017, the adult nightclub industry gathered en masse for the 25th Anniversary Gentlemen’s Club EXPO at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and it lived up to all of the hype associated with a Silver Anniversary. Throughout the four-day convention experience, industry luminaries offered their praise and congratulations as the industry celebrated 25 years of its only national convention.

“From the outside looking in, the EXPO certainly appeared seamless,” says industry legend Michael J. Peter, an EXPO 2017 attendee and considered by many to be the forefather of the modern gentlemen’s club. “Thank you and all of your staff for your endless diligent work that really has made all of us feel more professional about ourselves. You have been the glue and more for this industry. Give yourselves a pat on the back, you all deserve the utmost respect.”

23rd Annual Gentlemen's Club EXPO
We brought it to the Big Easy!

New Orleans hosted 2015 Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, August 23-26 at the Hilton Riverside

Though the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO had its home in Las Vegas for two decades, the time was right in 2015 to move the convention to the east and to a city that, although very different, holds much of the allure of Sin City.  But it’s also filled with historic landmarks, incredible food—and, of course, the legendary Bourbon Street. That city, of course was New Orleans, Louisiana. 

The 23rd Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO was held August 23-26, 2015, at the Hilton Riverside Hotel. The EXPO featured a two-day EXPO Tradeshow, three days of educational panel sessions including the return of the very popular “Staff Training Seminars,” while evening events will included the “Opening Night Bourbon Street Pub Crawl,” the 18th Annual ED’s Awards Show at the historic Civic Theatre, and a “Chill Day” Steamboat Party aboard the Creole Queen.

If the 2014 Gentlemen’s Club EXPO (August 17-20, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas) proved one thing, it’s that the EXPO isn’t just for club owners anymore. In fact, while the 22nd Annual EXPO brought in hundreds of adult nightclub owners from across the U.S. and around the world, scores of club staff also attended the EXPO, including general managers, floor managers, DJs, waitstaff, security and more.  A focal point for these club staffers was certainly the two days of “Staff Training Seminars” offered at the EXPO, seminars which targeted very specific areas of club operation including management, security, bartending, waitressing, DJs, promotions and social media, along with an impressive Keynote Address from Renegade Hospitality’s Tim Kirkland which exemplified the EXPO’s theme, “Formula Win: Turn Your Staff Into a Winning Crew.”
