ED Publications honors the "best-of-the-best" during industry's only national awards show at the industry's national convention: The "ED EXPO"Clearwater, FL — For the 21st straight year, an entire industry—a multi-billion-dollar industry—came together for three days of networking events, seminars, exclusive parties, a packed tradeshow and an industry Awards Show. The Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners EXPO, held August 20-22, 2013 at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, boasted one of the event's highest attendance, including club owners and operators, DJs and other club staff, feature entertainers, industry pros and many more.  As is the case each year, the EXPO's highlight event was the 16th Annual "ED's" Awards Show, held this year on August 21st at the House of Blues and sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. Anchored by Awards Show host, comedian Adam Hunter and including special guest appearances by Motley Crue's Vince Neil and Pantera/Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul, along with command performances by the four Overall Entertainer of the Year Nominees—Lacey Rain, Krystle Cummings, Christina Aguchi and Dakota Skye—the Annual ED's Awards Show presented awards to the industry's top adult nightclubs and feature entertainers. The two top awards—Overall Feature Entertainer of the Year and Overall Club of the Year—went to Christina Aguchi and Spearmint Rhino Las Vegas respectively. (See complete list of winners below.)

"With its fast pace, engaging special presenters and amazing feature entertainer performances—not to mention the great live music provided by Las Vegas' own Brazen—this year's ED's Awards Show will certainly go down as one of the best ever," says ED's Associate Publisher Dave Manack, noting that other "big winners" include Rick's Cabaret for Club Chain of the Year, Hall of Fame inductee (the late) Hal Lowrie of the PT's Showclub chain, Darling Danika for Newcomer Entertainer of the Year and Suzie Malone for Club Favorite Entertainer of the Year. "We not only salute each and every club and entertainer who won this year, but all of the deserving nominees as well. It is our privilege to be the only national awards show for this industry, and we enjoy celebrating the best-of-the-best each year."
