    Viva Las Vegas!

    The 25th Anniversary Gentlemens Club EXPO heads back to Sin City, August 27-30, 2017, at the Hard Rock

    It’s where the first Gentlemen’s Club EXPO was held in 1993. It’s the city the EXPO called

    home 20 times out of the past 24 years. With the EXPO celebrating its Silver Anniversary in 2017, it makes all the sense in the world to bring it back home, to Sin City, for the 25th Annual Gentlemens Club EXPO in 2017.

    This time, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas,with its brand new convention space, will play host to the multi-billion-dollar industrys only National Convention, Tradeshow, and Awards Show August 27-30, 2017.

    While we received a lot of input over the past few years from people who wanted a break from having the EXPO in Las Vegas, the reaction to the EXPO returning to Vegas has already been overwhelmingly enthusiastic, says ED Publications Associate Publisher Dave Manack (the EXPO moved to New Orleans in 2014-15). “And because its our 25th EXPO, you can bet were going to pull out all the stops and produce the biggest and best EXPO this industry has ever seen!

    The Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO is a three-day, three-night event featuring a full slate of seminars, workshops and panel sessions; a 120-booth Tradeshow showcasing companies with products and services available to club owners and operators; nightly parties and feature entertainer showcases; the EXPO Chill Day festivities; the Annual ED Awards Show; and the only national board meeting for ACE (the Association of Club Executives) thats open to the entire industry.

    ED Publications, which has produced the EXPO since the first show in 1993 at the Stardust Hotel & Casino, is also proud to note that next years EXPO will play host to the 20th Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Showaka, the EDs Awards Showthe only national awards show for the top adult nightclubs and feature entertainers.

    Get the Inside Track on Building Relationships
    with Government Officials at EXPO 2017

    What if the Police Chief of a major city, the Executive 
    Director of a state’s Licensed Beverage Association, 
    and a State Congressional Representative agreed 
    to give you advice on how your adult nightclub can 
    best cultivate relationships with law enforcement, 
    liquor control and state legislators? 
    Never happen, you say? It will at EXPO 2017.

    Politicians, liquor control boards and law enforcement: These are areas that can give club owners and operators nightmares. But what if you could get inside information and advice from key figures in each of these areas, information and advice that can help you foster a positive relationship with these entities? At this EXPO Government Relations Panel, we will feature three such individuals—Charles Wilson, retired commander of the Detroit Police Department; Scott Ellis, Executive Director of the Michigan Licensed Beverage Association (MLBA); and Michigan State Representative Harvey Santana, the most powerful Democrat in the State of Michigan—who will help club owners and operators to demystify the relationships with each of these three crucial areas of government and law enforcement. The panel will be moderated by ACE of Michigan Executive Director Larry Kaplan who has worked with all three men.

    Don't miss this Government Relations Panel and other must-attend Panel Sessions at the 2017 Gentlemen's Club EXPO this August 27-30 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
