"One of the most important elements in the success of the Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo is the active participation of some of the leading liquor companies in the world as sponsors. These firms understand the very close relationship between alcoholic beverage marketing and the gentlemen's club industry, particularly when they are breaking new brands and trying to build a buzz among a very influential family of consumers."

--Ed Anakar, Director of Operations, Rick's Cabaret Club Chain
