Exhibitor Info 2018

2018 EXPO final2
The 26th Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO convention and tradeshow will be held  August 19-22, 2018 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The backbone of the Annual EXPO is the Tradeshow which runs on days one and two (Monday and Tuesday) of the EXPO; with management workshops, panel sessions, and evening events all three days: Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

In keeping with the industry that we cover, there is a very casual, party-like atmosphere to the Tradeshow—think cocktails, music and constant activity throughout.  To reserve your Tradeshow booth space, please call Kris Kay or Caroline Ashe at the ED Publications offices at (727) 726-3592.

“I’ve been to all of the EXPOs and this year showed a real upturn in quality buyers. As a ATM vendor we can face some serious competition in the market but this year we saw some great traffic on both days of the tradeshow. We’re looking forward to seeing where exactly EXPO will be next year.”

We Give Our Club EXPO Exhibitors More Than Just Booth Space

When a vendor makes some great sales at the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, the only one happier than the vendor is us.
And for a selfish reason. A vendor who makes sales at an industry tradeshow is going to come back to that tradeshow. Which is why we at ED Publications go the extra mile to get as much attention as possible from club owners, general managers and other buyers for those companies that exhibit at EXPO. Here are just a few ways we do it:

we give more 6Each exhibitor’s company name, company logo, website and booth number is listed in the Confirmed Exhibitors Section of our convention website, www.theEDexpo.com  Click here for a look at the companies that will be exhibiting at EXPO 2018 this Aug. 19-22 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
we give more 1Exhibitors are given ED’s mailing list of 4,000 emails of club owners and general managers to email them in advance and invite them to their booth at the EXPO. And Exhibitors are announced in ED’s weekly e-Newsletter to the industry as they sign up for the show.
we give more 3Exhibitors are listed with their contact information in the printed EXPO Program Guide handed out at the show to all of the attendees.
we give more 2Exhibitors are mentioned from the Tradeshow Mainstage with their booth numbers and what unique products and services attendees can find at their booths. The Tradeshow Mainstage and the shout-outs to exhibitors are done both days of the Tradeshow.
we give more 4Exhibitor photos run in the EXPO recap issues of ED Magazine after the show.
we give more 5We even did full articles with photos of our Exhibitors from EXPO 2017 in a special section called "Friends with Benefits" in the two issues of ED Magazine following the show to remind show attendees about the great products and services they saw at the EXPO. Of course we included contact info on those exhibitors so club owners and managers could reach out to them.


The cost for a single 10-by-10 Basic Booth is $2,190, and the cost for a Premium Booth with preferred placement is $2,490.  Each booth includes a complimentary six-foot table, two chairs, a company sign and two EXPO badges (a $718 value).  You can purchase up to two additional badges per 10-by-10 booth at a discounted price of $250 per badge.  Those badges must be pre-purchased by July 1; after that date, all badges are sold at the regular price of $359 per person.  A signed contract and 50 percent deposit are required to reserve your booth space.  However, only full payment guarantees your booth space.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is the sole provider of food and beverage on property. However, the Hard Rock will not charge exhibitors a corking or service fee for handing out "samples" of beverages or food items (for products manufactured or produced by the exhibitor) as long as the samples are two (2) ounces for beverages and one (1) ounce for food.  

If you are handing out a full beer, a full glass of wine, a full cocktail or a full bottle/can of water or an energy drink, you will be charged a corkage and service fee. Also, if you are handing out alcoholic beverages from your booth, you will need to hire a Hard Rock bartender to handle the alcoholic beverage (it’s the law).    

To reserve a Hard Rock bartender for your booth, to check on corkage and service fees, and/or to order ice or other related items, please contact Julia Tovar, Program Coordinator Hard Rock, (702) 693-4003, This email address is being protected from spambots.
