    Bringin  it  to  the  Big  Easy

    New Orleans set to host 2015 Gentlemens Club EXPO, August 23-26 at the Hilton Riverside


    December 2, Cleawater, FL:  This might be some of the biggest news to hit the Big Easy in some time: The multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industrys only national convention is coming to New Orleans. And heres some more big news: This convention finally has its own dedicated


    Though the Annual Gentlemens Club EXPO has found its home in Las Vegas for two decades, the time was right to move the convention to the east and to a city that, although very different, holds much of the allure of Sin City.  But its also filled with historic landmarks, incredible foodand, of course, the legendary Bourbon Street.


    After having the EXPO in Las Vegas for the past 20 years12 of which were held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casinoit was just time for a breath of fresh air, says EDs Associate Publisher, Dave Manack.  There are only so many things we can do, and have done, to tweak the formula of the EXPO to make it new and fresh every single year. At a certain point, no matter what cool twists we put on the EXPO, its still Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. We think EXPO 2015 in New Orleans has a very exciting ring to it, and we expect it will have that same exciting ring for both our newest and longtime convention attendees.


    The 23rd Annual Gentlemens Club EXPO will be held August 23-26, 2015, at the Hilton Riverside Hotel. The hotel will feature a two-day EXPO Tradeshow, legal panels and a return of the very popular Staff Training Seminars, while evening events will include the Opening Night Bourbon Street Pub Crawl, the 18th Annual EDs Awards Show at the historic Civic Theatre, and a Chill Day Steamboat Party and Pirates Booty Contest aboard the Steamboat Natchez. A brand new website dedicated exclusively to the EXPOwww.theEDexpo.comwill contain all of the latest information on the EXPO, including EXPO registration, exhibiting and sponsorship opportunities.


    As big as the EXPO is, we felt as if it finally deserved its own website, says Manack. We still have that will have everything people need to know about our company or our magazines and digital formats, but is your source for everything EXPO.


    Highlight events include the EXPO 2015 Opening Night Bourbon Street Pub Crawl, which begins with a one-hour reception at the host hotel (Hilton Riverside), followed by visits at four top New Orleans adult clubsthe Penthouse Club, Larry Flynts Hustler Club, Ricks Cabaret and Babes Cabareteach hour, on the hour, featuring complimentary drinks and a showcase performance by one of the industrys top feature entertainers.


    The Annual EDs Awards, the adult nightclub industrys only national awards show, finds a brand new home in the most historic theater in all of New Orleansthe Civic Theatre. Built in 1906, the Civic Theatre is a beautiful historic structure, and care has been taken at every step to preserve these details.


    After the overwhelming success of EXPO 2014s Chill Day Bikini Contest & Pool Party, the format returnsalbeit in a very different venue! EXPO 2015s Chill Day and Pirates Booty Contest, following a morning of legal panels, will be held on the Steamboat Natchez, the last authentic steamboat on the mighty Mississippi! EXPO attendees will take a two-hour, catered cruise around the Mississippi on this legendary steamboat, which also boasts a large air-conditioned area in the center of the boat.


    We couldnt be more excited to make this announcement, and were expecting this EXPO to be the biggest and most well-attended in the conventions history, says Manack.  For more information, visit or call (727) 726-3592.
