EXPO 2018 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 100-booth Tradeshow with vendors showcasing their latest products and services; the Opening Night “Kick-Off” Party and Pre-ED Awards presentation; the EXPO “Splash Part” and $10,000 Bikini Contest; and the Annual ED’s Awards Show, the only national awards show honoring the industry’s top adult nightclubs and feature entertainers.
Here are three reasons you can’t miss the 2018 Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, August 19-22, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas
1.) It’s your chance to network.
Each time we poll attendees for the number-one reason why they come to the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, the answer that comes back more often than any other is, “To see old friends, meet new ones, and come together as an industry.” It’s the one time of year the entire adult nightclub industry comes together for three days of business and pleasure. From the Tradeshow to the seminars to the ACE National meeting to the parties, there are many networking opportunities at EXPO for everyone who makes their living in the adult nightclub industry. If you’ve never been, it’s almost a guarantee that “networking” is the reason why you’ll keep coming back. It’s an opportunity you won’t find anywhere else, ever!
2.) It’s your chance to learn.
While there are no “Strip Club 101” courses being offered at any colleges or universities around the country, the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO presents three days of educational seminars for attendees on a wide variety of subjects. These include: Marketing, bar sales, entertainer relations, new products, industry trends, legal issues, social media, management & leadership, DJ training, feature bookings, food sales, modern technology and so much more! The bottom line is, if you come to the EXPO ready to learn, you will leave the EXPO with ideas that you can bring back with you to improve your club, your career or both.
3.) It’s your chance to have great time doing business.
The EXPO is a celebration of the industry at large. It represents the opportunity for all of us to come together as one, to share ideas, to shake hands, to get better at what we do. And of course, we have a great time along the way! From the nightclub atmosphere of the tradeshow to the evening parties to the educational seminars to the ED Awards Show to the $10,000 Bikini Contest & Splash Party, the EXPO is the perfect cocktail of business and pleasure, all in one place — Las Vegas!
“From the outside looking in, (EXPO 2017) certainly appeared seamless. 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”
—Industry veteran and ED Hall of Famer, Michael J. Peter
