PARTIES & EVENTS
August 17-20, 2014 New Dates!
Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas
We realize that a good convention involves more than educational panel sessions and a Tradeshow packed with vendors offering the latest products and services. After all, we are in the entertainment industry. That’s why every EXPO includes special nightly parties which give attendees the opportunity to let their hair down and enjoy the night life of Las Vegas, while also networking with fellow club owners and industry professionals in a casual environment.

Game Show Party!
Held at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club on Tuesday, August 20, the 2013 EXPO’s Opening Night ‘Game Show’ Party packed the Vegas venue with attendees set to start their convention experience off with a bang. The party featured two classic game show parodies, including ‘Stripper Jeopardy’ and ‘The Dating Game,’ and also included the presentation of three ED’s ‘staff’ Awards: GM of the Year, Club Employee of the Year and DJ of the Year. The EXPO 2013 Opening Night Party was co-sponsored by MAL Entertainment, Blow Hookah and the Deja Vu/Hustler Club chain.
Closing Night ‘Specialty Acts Showcase’ Party!An event as big as the 21st Annual EXPO required equally big ‘closing night’ festivities, and the ‘Specialty Acts Showcase,’ held at Vegas’ Sapphire club, delivered. Instead of presenting the ‘usual’ feature showcase, the Specialty Acts Showcase—produced by Lexi Lamour and hosted by adult film superstarlet and feature entertainer Lisa Ann, boasted duo acts, snakes, a midget, a burlesque girl and ... blood.
Special thanks to our performers, including: duo act Skankasaurus Wrecks (Lacey Rain & Simone Danalustrous) and their rocking opening set; showgirl Roxi D’Lite and her classic burlesque performance; Pint Size Pepper and her innovative ‘Cthulu’ show; duo act Diamond Dolls (Richelle Ryan & Lisa Licious) and their ‘too hot for teacher’ routine; pole expert Katie Sutra; Jaded Dawn and her ‘snake charmer’ set; and dance ensemble the Suicide Showgirls, who tantalized the crowd with their wickedly sensual act filled with broken glass, dollars stapled to skin and much more. Special thanks to Closing Night Party sponsors Exotica Emporium and Sapphire.
