You're invited to the Expo!

ED (Exotic Dancer) Publications is the only national business magazine, national convention and national awards show serving the multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industry. The company was established in 1991 and has faithfully served this industry for three decades! We have produced the Annual Gentlemen's Club EXPO since its inception in 1993, and look forward to celebrating the 30th anniversary of EXPO in 2023!

What is the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, and why should you consider attending?

  The Annual Gentlemen’s Club Expo is the only national convention and awards show for the multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub (strip club) industry. The Expo attracts over 1,000 club owners, general managers, club staff and entertainers from across the US and around the world, with attendees coming from as far away as Norway, Australia and New Zealand. The Expo was established in 1993 and is celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2023 at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas (August 20-23). The Expo has three main components: Seminars that provide valuable business insight and advice for club owners, managers and entertainers; a tradeshow with companies showcasing products and services for clubs and entertainers; and exclusive evening parties, including the Annual ED’s Awards Show, the only national awards show for this industry.

But why, exactly, should YOU, an entertainer, come to the EXPO?

If you are an entertainer who wants to make the most of your time as a dancer, the Expo can provide you with many opportunities to learn, to network, to meet club professionals from across the US and connect with the industry on a national scale. You can also have the opportunity to compete in the Expo’s $10,000 Topless Bikini Contest and Day Party at the world-famous Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club! And this year, courtesy of our friends at Pole Position, we’re offering an exclusive Expo registration rate for club entertainers of just $99 (the regular price to attend Expo is $299!).

At EXPO 2023, there will be several educational seminars designed
exclusively for entertainers, including:

Social media management

Monday, August 21, 12:15 pm - 1pm

Social media can be an entertainer’s best marketing tool, or a constant aggravation — or both! Our social media experts — Sammy Shayne and Bryan of Couch Fame, who work regularly with adult entertainers — will help all entertainers better manage their social media and avoid typical pitfalls that frequently plague adult entertainers.  

Protecting your mental & financial health

Monday, August 21, 1:15 – 2 pm

This seminar will focus on your health — mental and financial. Speakers will include Dr. Monique Martinez-Quiros, a dual-licensed mental health therapist in Nevada and Arizona. She is also the Vice Chair of The Cupcake Girls, a group that provides confidential mental health support to those involved in the adult industry including advocacy, holistic resources, and referral service. Additionally, Katherine Studley of The Only Consultant will address areas critical to every entertainer’s career, including both touring “features” and house entertainers. Specifically, how to save and invest your earnings to protect your future.

Can you hear me now? How to get entertainers, DJs and managers on the same page

Wednesday, August 23, 10:30 am - 11:30 am

“What is the best music to play in a club?” That question has been debated for years, and rarely do people agree on what the “correct” answer is. Still, one thing is clear: The key to a successful music format starts with ensuring that everyone in the club understands what music is going to be played and why. This seminar will feature veteran club DJ Danny Meyers, feature entertainer and previous club manager Bambi Wilde, and Bucks Wild GM Jimmy Edwards, who will discuss how to implement a music strategy that everyone in the club can support.

Other highlights will include the Expo’s Keynote Address by world-renown memory expert Ron White on Tuesday, August 22, The Annual ED’s Awards Show at the Paris Theater (tickets are $69), also on Tuesday, and the aforementioned $10K Bikini Contest at Sapphire.
