Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo Returns to Caesars Palace in 2003
by: Company Press Release
(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- By popular demand, the 11th Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo will return to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The newly revamped hotel & casino will host the Expo for the third time, while their brand new Pavilion will house the Expo's 300-booth tradeshow, the largest Expo Tradeshow ever. Expo 2003 is scheduled for Tuesday August 26 through Thursday August 28.
But the larger Tradeshow is certainly not the only thing new at Expo 2003. For the first time, the Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show will take place on Thursday evening (making it the Expo's climactic event), and will include a sit-down dinner. The Awards Show, which will be held in Caesars Palace's luxurious Grand Ballroom, is the only Expo event open to the general public.
Also for the first time, several experts from outside of the industry will be brought in to speak on various subjects for a two-hour "Inside Advice From the Outside" Session, one of the sure highlights of Expo 2003's panel sessions. And this year's Marketing Session will have an "American Idol" flavor, as three industry experts will praise the best-and bash the worst-adult nightclub advertisements in radio and print. Combined with the eagerly anticipated Legal Sessions, Expo 2003's two days of panels are aimed at keeping clubs up and running-and profitable-in difficult economic times.
"Because the economy and the war have certainly affected many clubs nationwide, we think it's crucial that club owners show their unification by attending Expo 2003 to gather information from attorneys, inside and outside experts, vendors and fellow club owners," says Don Waitt, publisher and president of Exotic Dancer Publications, producers of the Expo and a host of publications including the annual Adult Nightclubs Guide, the new Adult Entertainers Guide, the new Industry Buyer's Guide and the bimonthly Exotic Dancer Club Bulletin. ED Publications also produces two leading industry websites: ExoticDancer.com and GirlsOfED.com. "A key theme of Expo 2003 will be the importance of promoting your club-after all, adult nightclubs can provide a great release from the tension of these difficult times. This is something that club owners, club operators and feature entertainers can capitalize on."
While customers may look to the adult nightclubs as an erotic escape from today's tensions, club owners and operators can look to Expo 2003 as their escape. Though the Expo consistently offers attendees the chance to improve their businesses and careers by attending the 300-booth tradeshow or the numerous panel sessions, they also have the rare opportunity to meet with old friends and make new ones at many Expo festivities, including the Expo's Opening Night "Toga Party" at the Caesars Palace Pool, and at the 2nd Annual Club Owner Appreciation Party at the multi-million-dollar Jaguars Gentlemen's Club on Wednesday night.
The Annual Fan Fair will follow the Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo on August 29-30. And like the Expo, there are changes planned to make 2003 the hottest Fan Fair yet. First, Friday's "Meet & Greet" Feature Tradeshow has moved to the spacious Jaguars Gentlemen's Club, one of Vegas' newest adult nightclubs. The Sixth Annual Exotic Dancer Bikini Contest, possibly the Fan Fair's most eagerly anticipated event, will be held poolside at Caesars on Saturday afternoon.
Fan Fair 2003 will also feature two sizzling feature showcases. Friday night's "GirlsOfED.com" Showcase will include ten top feature entertainers, and will be held at Little Darlings gentlemen's club. The showcase will be hosted by Brittany Love and Exotica, who form the new dance duo "Exotic Love." And for the first time ever, fans will have the opportunity to pick which features will showcase by voting for their ten favorites at GirlsOfED.com. Saturday night's "Rising Stars" Showcase will feature ten of the brightest new stars in exotic dance, and will be held at Deja Vu. Saturdays' showcase will be hosted by Lucy L'Vette and Mercedez, ED's 2002 Entertainer of the Year. Both showcases are full nude.
