Parties & Events 2020
Las Vegas in October is… hot. But at EXPO 2020, things will get even hotter at night with the parties and special events planned for the 28th EXPO at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, October 25-28.
With three days packed full of Staff Training Seminars, a Keynote Address, the Legal & Marketing Panels, and a two-day, 120-booth Tradeshow, it’s clear that the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO is about doing business. But it’s also about having a great time! As is the case each year, EXPO 2020 will be packed with evening events, parties and the Annual ED’s Awards Show, all designed to allow attendees to network, get caught up with old friends, make new friends and ... PARTY!
Parties and Events for EXPO 2020!
Opening Night Halloween Party, Sponsored by Religion Tequila
Monday, October 26, 9 pm-midnight
Gallery Nightclub @ Planet Hollywood
Whether you’re into Michael, Jason or Freddy, or you’re the old-school vampire, werewolf or witch type, or you prefer the more humorous — or sexy — approach, all costumes are welcome and thoroughly encouraged at the EXPO’s Opening Night Halloween Party on Monday, October 26th. From 9 pm to the witching hour, the EXPO kicks off in devilish fashion at the Gallery Nightclub inside Planet Hollywood. Cash prizes will be awarded to the feature entertainer and attendee who have the best or most inventive costumes, while ED Awards will be presented ahead the “main” Awards Show on Tuesday evening. There may never be an Opening Night Halloween Party again, so don't miss it!
The ED Awards being handed out on Monday evening include:
GM of the Year • DJ of the Year • Club Employee of the Year • Urban Club of the Year • International Club of the Year • International Showgirl of the Year • Adult Entertainer of the Year • Newcomer Entertainer of the Year • Miss ExoticDancer.com of the Year
Annual ED’s Awards Show
October 27, 9-11 pm (8-9 pm reception)
Criss Angel Theater, Planet Hollywood
Presented in a Brand Education Partnership with Patron Tequila
For 23 years, ED Publications and the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO have honored the adult nightclub industry with its only national awards show, acknowledging the best-of-the-best amongst clubs, club staff and touring feature entertainers. At EXPO 2020, the Criss Angel Theater at Planet Hollywood will once again play host to the ED Awards on Tuesday, October 27th. For the second straight year, the ED Awards Show is presented in a Brand Education Partnership with Patron Tequila, the “World’s Finest Ultra-Premium Spirits.” The Awards Show will boast a nationally known comedian as the evening’s host, and will also include command performances by the three ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year nominees.
Among the evening’s marquee awards will be the Overall Gentlemen’s Club of the Year, Club Chain of the Year, the Overall Entertainer of the Year and the ED Hall of Fame. There will also be two new awards introduced in 2020: The Industry Executive of the Year, a category which will feature a broad list of industry professional nominees, and the Overall “Small” Club of the Year, a category which, like the Overall Gentlemen’s Club of the Year, will recognize the top “small” clubs from across the country (ten nominees in all).
Tickets for the ED Awards Show are $69 ($89 after May 31) and can be purchased by clicking here or by calling ED Publications at (727) 726-3592.
In the style of the famous NCAA “March Madness” college basketball tournament, 16 of the industry’s top feature entertainers will be selected to compete in the first-ever “Sweet 16” Feature Bracket Tournament. Once the “field” is selected, entertainers will be slotted in one-on-one “match-ups” where each girl will get three minutes on stage to “wow” the judges. One girl is then selected the winner of that match-up, and the field is narrowed down from the “sweet 16” to the “elite 8,” then to the “final four” and on to the final two features in the bracket “championship.” Madness, indeed! The winner will receive a championship belt, thousands in advertising and some serious bragging rights! Come enjoy the show and relax at our annual “Chill Day” event to cap off your EXPO 2020 experience!
