2013 Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo to Focus on Money - Make More. Keep More. Learn How.
"Club owners like me want to know what they can do right now to make more money. How can we make more in profits? What company’s product or service will help us do that? That’s what we want to see and hear at the Expo." — quote from Expo 2012 attendee
"Money—Make More. Keep More. Learn How," is the theme of the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo this coming August 20-22, 2013, at the luxurious Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The 2013 show will mark the 21-Year Anniversary of the multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industry’s only national convention and trade show.
Following the 2012 Expo, attendees were surveyed and an overwhelming number of respondents said they wanted to hear more seminar discussions on how to make more money and how to save more money. They also wanted more Trade show exhibitors at the show to feature the latest products and services that will help them accomplish those goals of making more and saving more. Our attendees asked, and Expo 2013 is designed to deliver.
"With all of our panels and seminars carrying either a ‘make more money’ or ‘save more money’ theme—and with a Keynote Address from Vivid’s Steven Hirsch, one of the most financially successful businessmen in the history of adult entertainment—this year’s Expo is designed to positively impact every attendee’s bottom line," says Ed’s Associate Publisher, Dave Manack. "Our impressive lineup of guest speakers, both from inside and outside of the adult club industry, will give attendees the nuts-and-bolts financial and operational advice that they’ve been asking for."
But just as adult nightclubs are in the business of pleasure, so the Annual Expo promises more than just educational and networking opportunities. The convention regularly boasts exclusive evening events and after-parties, and Expo 2013 is no different. The Opening Night "Game Show" Party at the Oracle Nightclub will feature "Stripper Jeopardy," "The Dating Game" and more, while the Closing Night "Specialty Acts" Showcase Party will include some of the industry’s most unique feature performers.
Of course, the Expo will also feature the industry’s version of the Oscars—the 16th Annual Ed’s Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show. Honoring the best of the best in adult nightclubs and feature entertainment, it is the industry’s only national awards show. Featuring a celebrity comedian host, a live band and several guest presenters, the Ed’s Awards Show is a true celebration of the industry.
The Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo draws more than 3,000 attendees, including over 1,700 club owners, general managers, club personnel and entertainers from individual clubs and club chains. Other Expo attendees include liquor/beer distributors; food and beverage companies; club furnishings and bar products companies; attorneys, architects, club brokers and insurance specialists; and sound, lighting and staging companies.
