(CLEARWATER, FL) -- The largest cash prize - $23,000.00 - in the history of the exotic entertainer contest industry will be given out this coming August in Las Vegas at the 13th Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo and the 9th Annual Exotic Dancer Fan Fair.
In a unique twist, $13,000 in cash will go to the entertainers who win-and the other $10,000 will go to the club owners, agents or video companies that sponsor the winners. The contest is open to club dancers, feature entertainers and pornstars. Past Top 10 winners have included Inari Vachs, Nakita Kash, Devon Michaels, Felecia, Tanya Taylor, Exotica, Mercedez, jessica drake, and Kloey Love.
"Most contests claim high dollar prizes and then give away trips or bookings; at this event the winners and sponsors will walk away with $23,000 in cold hard cash," say the publishers of Exotic Dancer Magazine, the show producers.
In other news, the Expo 2005 convention and tradeshow - the largest gathering of the year of adult nightclub owners and entertainers - will be held one week earlier this year on August 23-25, 2005 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The theme of Expo 2005 is "Increasing Profits at Adult Nightclubs."
Expo 2005 is earlier this year so that attendees can avoid the Labor Day weekend and receive better airfare and hotel rates. Expo 2005 will be immediately followed at Mandalay Bay by the Exotic Dancer Fan Fair 2005 on August 26-27, a two-day national event for the fans of exotic entertainers.
The 13th Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo will once again bring over 3,000 adult nightclub owners and operators, vendors, feature entertainers, industry professionals and media from all over the world to Vegas for three days of panel sessions, nightly parties, dancer showcases, a 300-booth Tradeshow and a national awards show. Directly following Expo 2005 is the annual Exotic Dancer Fan Fair which offers the devotees of exotic entertainment the unique opportunity to see many of the adult industry's top stars all in one place at a tradeshow, two evening dancer showcases and the $23,000 dancer contest.
The Annual Expo/Fan Fair bikini contest has been redesigned as a $23,000 contest to find the country's Number 1 dancer. The contest, which will continue to be produced by the Pure Gold national club chain, is now called "Club Owners Challenge-America's Number 1 Dancer" and is open to entertainers who will strut their stuff on the main stage; the emphasis now is on sexy dancing, not bikini posing. The top four winning dancers will split $10,000 in cash prizes-and the club owners, agents or video companies that sponsor them will also split $10,000 in cash prizes! Another $3,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to dancers who place in the Top 10. The contest is held the first day of Fan Fair and is open to industry pros and fans.
