Be a VIP at EXPO with our first-ever Premium VIP Experience!
You offer your customers the VIP experience, now it’s your turn to be treated like the rock star you are!
Gentlemen’s clubs pride themselves on providing VIP service and amenities. And just as this year’s EXPO and its “Party Business” theme is celebrating the way the industry’s clubs throw a party every night, we wanted to help recreate that VIP experience at EXPO. That’s exactly why we’ve introduced the Premium VIP Registration Package for EXPO 2018!
You deserve to be treated like a “VIP.” And why not?! We all like to feel special and appreciated, and feeling like a “VIP” can turn a night out or a vacation into an unforgettable experience. If you’d like to have something more from your EXPO experience, the Premium VIP Registration is for you.
“VIP packages have become standard in the entertainment industry,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher, Dave Manack. “Whether you’re talking about concerts, major sports or nightclub events, we as the consumer now have the opportunity to ‘upgrade’ our experiences. It was a natural progression for us to upgrade the EXPO experience, especially as our convention’s theme revolves around the ‘business’ of throwing the best possible party in your club. And selling the VIP experience is certainly part of the ‘party business.’”
Here’s what EXPO guests will receive with their Premium VIP Registration for just $1,995:
• Three EXPO badges, which are our first-ever specially designated Gold VIP laminate badges ($1077 value)
• Three up-front VIP table tickets for the 2018 ED’s Awards Show ($450 value)
• EXPO registration VIP Room for badge pick-up (skip the registration lines)
• Early entry and line-jumping to all events (including the Opening Night Party and the “Splash Party”/$10,000 Bikini Contest)
• Limited-edition EXPO 2018 Travel Bag and shirt ($75 value)
• And all additional EXPO badges can be purchased for just $199

And don't miss another EXPO first: The "On the Couch" Seminar Series!
Think Jimmy Fallon. Think Conan.
A couch, a table, a coffee mug, a conversation — and maybe a few laughs!
At EXPO 2018, we’re introducing an entirely different kind of seminar presentation, one that will resemble a talk-show and will replace the “talking-heads” format typically seen at EXPO panels. We’ll introduce three speakers, one at a time, and our “host” will pepper them with specific questions about their particular area of expertise as it relates to the topics of this year’s seminars. The format will be entertaining, but even more importantly, you’ll leave the EXPO 2018 seminars with practical advice and tips you can use to choose, plan and execute parties and other special events in your club.
This new format kicks off on the first full day of EXPO, August 20th, with the "Party Business" seminar series, including:
Each time we poll attendees for the number-one reason why they come to the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, the answer that comes back more often than any other is, “To see old friends, meet new ones, and come together as an industry.” It’s the one time of year the entire adult nightclub industry comes together for three days of business and pleasure. From the Tradeshow to the seminars to the ACE National meeting to the parties, there are many networking opportunities at EXPO for everyone who makes their living in the adult nightclub industry. If you’ve never been, it’s almost a guarantee that “networking” is the reason why you’ll keep coming back. It’s an opportunity you won’t find anywhere else, ever!
While there are no “Strip Club 101” courses being offered at any colleges or universities around the country, the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO presents three days of educational seminars for attendees on a wide variety of subjects. These include: Marketing, bar sales, entertainer relations, new products, industry trends, legal issues, social media, management & leadership, DJ training, feature bookings, food sales, modern technology and so much more! The bottom line is, if you come to the EXPO ready to learn, you will leave the EXPO with ideas that you can bring back with you to improve your club, your career or both.
The Annual Gentlemen's Club EXPO serves several functions. It brings the entire industry together. It celebrates the industry with its only national awards show. It educates the industry with informative seminars and panel sessions. It also allows club owners/operators, club staff, entertainers and industry pros to do business, as companies exhibit products and services designed for the adult nightclub industry in the EXPO Tradeshow. But of course, this is the adult nightclub industry—and the parties are just as much a part of the convention as the seminars and tradeshow. As we at ED Publications like to say, the EXPO is the most fun you'll ever have doing business. With events such as the Opening Night "Kick-Off" Party, the ED's Awards Show and After-Party, the Bikini Contest and Closing Night festivities, attendees will have a blast at EXPO!
