Over the course of the 23 years of EXPO, clubs from across the globe have attended the adult nightclub industry's only B2B convention. In 2015, ED Publications and the Annual EXPO introduced our first "international" ED Award for "International Club of the Year
," which featured eight nominees from five countries including Canada, Russia, France, Australia and the U.K. The Penthouse Club in Perth, Australia (see photo, left)
took home this inaugural award. Also in 2015, for the first time ever, Europe's largest industry "magazine" and website, Strip Magazine
), was represented at EXPO by its publisher, Magnus Morland
To further increase the international club presence at EXPO 2016, ED Publications is offering a half-price discount for EXPO all-access badges (that's just $179 each!) by using the code GLOBAL
at registration (http://www.theedexpo.com/attending/attendee-registration
). In conjunction with Magnus and Strip Magazine, ED Publications and the Gentlemen's Club EXPO will offer meeting space at the Hilton Riverside during EXPO for a meeting of all international attendees
. Among the topics of conversation will be an International Gentlemen's Club EXPO
, as well as the specific issues that are important to clubs across the globe.
Here's even more reasons why you want to consider attending the Annual Gentlemen's Club EXPO!
Top experts in many critical areas of club operation, including bar management, staffing, security, food and beverage service, new products and much more, are addressed during the EXPO's seminars and panel sessions. There is also a Legal Panel, which presents the most pressing legal issues facing the adult club industry today (at EXPO 2016, the subject will concern the upcoming U.S. Presidential Election).
