2016 ED's Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Final Ballot!

It’s been dubbed as the “Oscars” of the adult nightclub industry, the marquee event of the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO and an evening worthy of celebration. The Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show—known more frequently as the ED’s Awards—will return for its 19th straight year at the 2016 EXPO, which will be held at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans from August 7-10. This year, the Harrah's Theater, located directly across the street from the Hilton Riverside in the Harrah's Casino, will host the ED's Awards Show and Reception on Tuesday, August 9th, from 9-11 pm (reception starts at 8 pm). The Awards After Party will also be held at Harrah's Casino, at the Masquerade Nightclub.

 This online ballot will remain live until midnight on July 4th, 2016.

New for 2016!
 For the first time ever, ED Publications presents the "Urban Club of the Year" award category. This is a national club award that recognizes adult nightclubs that offer an urban club format.

Please note: In order to keep the ED's Awards Show as a slim, trim, two-hour production (no one wants a 3-hour-plus Awards Show!), we've moved a selection of ED Awards to our EXPO Opening Night Party (a format that was first introduced in 2014). The following ED Awards will be presented at the EXPO Opening Night Showcase Party and Pre-ED Awards presentation at the Republic Nightclub on Monday, August 8th, promptly at 9 pmInternational Club of the Year, Urban Club of the Year, "Feature" Club of the Year, General Manager of the Year, DJ of the Year, Club Employee of the Year, Adult Movie Feature Entertainer of the Year, Newcomer Entertainer of the Year and Miss ExoticDancer.com of the Year.

 To purchase tickets, or for more information about the 2016 ED’s Awards Show or the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO, please visit www.TheEDexpo.com or call (727) 726-3592.
