(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- More than 3,000 adult nightclub operators, top touring exotic entertainers and nightclub vendors will be at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Aug. 28-30, 2001 for the 9th Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo.
Produced by the publishers of EXOTIC DANCER Magazine, Expo 2001 marks the ninth year that the movers and shakers of the multi-billion dollar gentlemen's club industry will gather to address issues of concern to adult nightclub operators and to discuss ways to increase business in the often hostile and always competitive world of exotic entertainment.
Expo 2001 calls for three days of legal and marketing Panel Sessions, a 250-booth Tradeshow, Performance Showcases by the industry's top exotic dancers, and an Industry Awards Show in the 1,700-seat Mandalay Bay Theatre.
Business highlights of Expo 2001 will include panel discussions by attorneys from the First Amendment Lawyers Association on the most pressing legal hurdles facing adult club operators today; a general membership meeting of the recently-formed Association of Club Executives (ACE) to address the formation of statewide club associations; and a repeat of last year's highly successful "If I Owned Your Club Panel" where general managers and club consultants pass on from-the-trenches tips to club owners.
Entertainment highlights of Expo 2001will include the Finals Competition for Miss Exotic Dancer USA, which culminates the industry's largest series of statewide exotic dancer pageants; the Feature Entertainer Showcase with performances by dancers representing the industry's five largest talent agencies; three speciality runway events on the Martin Professional stage during the Tradeshow; and the Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show, a full-blown Vegas-style casino show featuring national recording acts.
Attendees to Expo 2001 will also be able to attend, at no additional charge, the 5th Annual Exotic Dancer Fan Fair, a two-day meet-and-greet at Mandalay Bay Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. At Fan Fair 2001, fans and industry professionals can socialize with over 200 top exotic dancers, feature entertainers, men¹s magazine covergirls and adult movie actresses at the world's largest Bikini Contest, an up-close-and-personal Feature Dancer Tradeshow, and two evenings of private parties and entertainer showcases.
Expo 2001 registration fees are $295 for industry professionals and $195 for entertainers (or just $245 and $145 for early registration before May 30). Exhibit booths at the Tradeshow are $995 each and include two full Expo 2001 registrations. To register call (727) 726-3592 or send payment to ED Publications, 2431 Estancia Blvd., Bldg.
