Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Gentlemen’s Club EXPO at Paris in Las Vegas, August 20-23, 2023
It’s an event 30 years in the making.
In 1993, a convention was introduced that would change the course of a multi-billion-dollar industry. The very first Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, held at the old Stardust in Las Vegas, offered just a handful of booths and only a few seminars.
It didn’t take long for a buzz to build. Though owners, operators, entertainers and other club professionals rarely saw themselves treated with the respect that they knew it deserved, this brand new convention — produced by a company called ED (Exotic Dancer) Publications — brought an entire industry together for an event that now boasted three full days of seminars, a large tradeshow, evening parties and feature entertainer showcases. And finally, in 1998, the only national awards show for adult clubs was introduced: The Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show, now known simply as the ED’s Awards.
In addition to being the industry’s only national convention, the EXPO has also become an annual reunion, as friends old and new come together, share stories and salute the industry that they call home. In 2023, there’s an additional reason to come together and celebrate, as the EXPO enjoys its 30th Anniversary on August 20-23, 2023, at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
“We welcome all industry professionals to this 30th Anniversary celebration, because the EXPO simply wouldn’t exist without the club owners, operators, staff, entertainers and supporting vendors and sponsors who have helped build this amazing industry into what it is today,” says ED Publications’ Publisher, Dave Manack. “Whether it will be your 30th EXPO or your first, this promises to be an event worthy of our convention’s three-decade history.”
