You can’t work in this industry and not exhibit at the EXPO Tradeshow.  You have to be committed in a lot of different ways, because it’s a small industry and people do talk.   But that's a good thing, because you can get a lot of great recommendations through word of mouth, because club owners do communicate with each other and they are a very loyal group.  The only way you can get to know the decision-makers in this industry is go to the show and talk to them, to meet them in person. I serve a lot of other industries, but the adult nightclub industry is still 50 percent of my business—that's only because I’m involved with the EXPO and with ED Club Bulletin. I’ve talked to some club owners for two or three years before they actually bought carpet. They may not order right away, but you have to continue to exhibit every year.  You can’t just show up once and make a bunch of phone calls and expect club owners to order in droves. They’re probably not going to, and I don’t blame them. If you expect dedication from them you have to be dedicated to them. You have to support the industry if you want them to support you.

2014 Gentlemen’s Club EXPO & Tradeshow
August 17-20, 2014 New Dates!
Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas

The 22nd Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO convention and tradeshow will be held August 17-20, 2014, at the beautiful Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.  The backbone of the Annual EXPO is the Tradeshow which runs on days one and two (Monday and Tuesday) of the EXPO; with management workshops, panel sessions, and evening events all three days, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

In keeping with the industry that we cover, there is a very casual, party-like atmosphere to the Tradeshow—think cocktails, music and constant activity throughout.  To reserve your Tradeshow booth space, please call Lacy Empkey or Kris Kay at the ED Publications offices at (727) 726-3592.

We developed several relationships with vendors at the EXPO Tradeshow that we took advantage of immediately.  We started to carry Crystal Head Vodka in our locations.  We contacted every insurance agency from the show to get quotes.  We used Omega Pattern Works for carpet and KG Furniture for our new custom bar stools and chairs.  We took full advantage of the treasure of information and vendors made available to us at the EXPO. 
— Charles Bass, Owner, Babes Cabaret in New Orleans and Diamond Club South in Houston



The cost for a single 10-by-10 booth is $1,790 or $1,990, based on the booth location on the Tradeshow floor.  Each booth includes a complimentary six-foot table, two chairs, a company sign and two EXPO badges (a $700 value).  You can purchase up to two additional badges per 10-by-10 booth at a discounted price of $200 per badge.  Those badges must be pre-purchased by July 1; after that date, all badges are sold at the regular price of $350 per person.  A signed contract and 50 percent deposit are required to reserve your booth space.  However, only full payment guarantees your booth space.

One of the most important elements in the success of the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo is the active participation of some of the leading liquor companies in the world as sponsors. These firms understand the very close relationship between alcoholic beverage marketing and the gentlemen’s club industry, particularly when they are breaking new brands and trying to build a buzz among a very influential family of consumers."
— Ed Anakar, Director of Operations, Rick’s Cabaret Club Chain
