The 25th Anniversary Gentlemen’s Club EXPO heads back to Sin City, August 27-30, 2017, at the Hard Rock

It’s where the first Gentlemen’s Club EXPO was held in 1993. It’s the city that the EXPO called home 20 times out of the past 24 years. With the EXPO celebrating its Silver Anniversary in 2017, it makes all the sense in the world to bring it back “home,” to Sin City, for the 25th Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, August 27-30, 2017

hard-rock-hotel-las-vegasThis time, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, with its brand new convention area, will play host to the multi-billion-dollar industry’s only national convention and awards show.

“While we received a lot of input over the past few years from people who wanted a break from having the EXPO in Las Vegas, the reaction to the EXPO returning to Vegas has already been overwhelmingly enthusiastic,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher Dave Manack (the EXPO moved to New Orleans in 2014 & ‘15). “And because it’s our 25th EXPO, you can bet we’re going to pull out all the stops and produce the biggest and best EXPO this industry has ever seen!”

ED Publications, which has produced the EXPO since the first show in ‘93 at the (now-defunct) Stardust Hotel & Casino, is also proud to note that next year’s EXPO will play host to the 20th Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show—aka, the ED’s Awards Show—the only national awards show for the top adult nightclubs and feature entertainers. 

Exciting Hard Rock Hotel & Casino venues will play host to EXPO 2017 events, including Vanity (which will host the Opening Night Party), The Joint Theater (which will host the ED's Award Show) and the Breathe Pool Ultra Lounge (which will host the "Chill Day" Pool Party & Bikini Contest). 

For more information on the adult nightclub industry’s only national convention (open to industry professionals), email dave@edpublications.com, find ED on Facebook at ED Publications, or call (727) 726-3592.

What they are saying about EXPO 2016

  • “We look forward to the EXPO every year to see our friends, to continue building strong relationships and to meet new club owners. The EXPO is like no other! Lots of entertainment, an incredible amount of sharing great knowledge and tools for club owners, encouraging and celebrating accomplishments with Awards Show night. For club owners, this show is a must!” — Marsha Long, Alpha Patterned Carpets, GA

  • “We felt EXPO was a great success. We all enjoyed our time with everyone. We have potential licensing agreements from our exposure at the trade show. We are looking to expand the Babe’s brand and the EXPO has played a tremendous part in helping us develop and market the Babe’s Cabaret brand.” — Charles, Jordan and Darren Bass, Babe’s NOLA, LA and NJ
  • “I enjoyed the show. It was my first time. I believe my presentation was well received. I already have more than 50 contacts that I followed up with as a result of receiving their business card at the show. It has been fruitful.”  — Trevor Estelle, TIPS, VA
  • “The EXPO was great for us. A week out and we’ve more than doubled our previous best client sign up. Looking forward to the home cooking of Vegas next year.”  — Duffy Franclemont, J Dog Media, FL
  • “We hope that you bring the dancers competition back onto the trade show floor or do something to give the attendees a reason to come into the exhibit hall, especially on the second day. We are looking forward to the show again next year and we plan to exhibit as we have for most of the past 20-plus years.”  — Paul Artt, QnC, Dallas
  • “Love the entire event. From the PANDA party pre-EXPO to bowling. This year was my second year and I learned so much. I didn’t go to as many DJ panels because I wanted to learn more about other areas and I did. It was great!”  — Jerry Butler, The Ritz, Houston
  • “Thoroughly enjoyed my first EXPO experience. I came back refreshed, with new ideas, new contacts and an enthusiasm to get back to work.”  — Jay Hatch, Paradise Found, Syracuse, NY
  • “A House Mom Seminar next year would be great, teaching the skills of this business from a house moms’ view. Also a seminar on being a better manager from the time you walk in the door to the time you lock up. I’d like to know what other managers do when there for a shift, i.e. walk the floor, run to walk in, pick up after waitresses, paperwork, social media.”  — Eric Anthony, Rhode Island Dolls, RI
  • “I always enjoy the EXPO. I get to see people I know, and I always meet new people.”  — Myles Shaffer, AINews.com
  • “The learning opportunities at EXPO are fabulous if you go in with that as your goal.”  — Kira Mundhenk, Double Visions, Horsham, PA
  • “Fantastic networking with other ACE chapters, the club owners and attorneys. Thanks for bringing COAST training to EXPO!”  — Jill Chambers, Goodtime Emporium, Atlanta
  • “I’d like to see lighting systems for clubs and live events on the trade show floor.”  — Jeremy Sweigert, Teasers, Jamme Holdings, PA
  • “More seminars on bar revenue and bartender and server training, and live entertainment on a stage in the trade show.”  —Shon Boulden, Devil’s Point, Portland, OR

    First Amendment Attorney

    When we poll attendees for the #1 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.” If you’ve never been, it’s almost a guarantee that “networking” is the reason why you’ll keep coming back.

  • It’s your chance to learn

    Panel Sessions
