ED Club Bulletin is mailed to the owners and operators of more than 3,000 adult nightclubs in North America—and is also mailed to over 2,500 vendors and industry professionals. The magazine is the only news and reference source for the decison-makers and buyers at adult nightclubs. The growth and success of our publication has kept pace with the phenomenal growth and success of adult nightclubs over the past decade and a half, as they have gone from the strip clubs of old to today’s high-dollar, white collar gentlemen’s clubs.
Each issue of ED Club Bulletin is packed with legal, marketing, management and vendor relations news designed with but one goal in mind—to increase business for adult nightclub owners by providing them with how-to tips and access to the vendors and industry pros whose products and services can help them increase their profits.
Sure the entertainment offered at adult nightclubs is different than that found at sports bars or dance clubs. But the reality is that the owners and operators of adult nightclubs are not in the adult entertainment business—they are in the hospitality business. They sell drinks, they sell food, they sell merchandise, and they spend billions of dollars every year on alcohol and beer, on sound and lighting, on carpeting and fixtures, etc. At any given minute there are more men, and women, sitting in an adult nightclubs than in any other type of nightclub. It’s a big business, and it’s a business that ED Publications has covered, and will continue to cover, in a big way.
