(CLEARWATER, FL) -- 2009 Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo this August 23-26 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Building a Winning Team in Your Club. Learn how to win—and win Big—at Expo 2009!
A championship game is played every night in an adult nightclub. Kick-off is when the club opens its doors and the final whistle is when it closes. The question that every club owner and staff member must ask himself or herself is, did their club win the game?
Did they beat the opposing team (the competition, including fellow adult clubs and mainstream entertainment establishments)? Did they effectively manage their players (managers, dancers, bartenders, floormen, waitresses, DJs and house moms)?
The truth is, no one person can win the game all by themselves. No owner or general manager can do it all. It takes an entire staff—playing together as one unit, one team—to win each and every night.
In case you haven’t guessed it yet, the theme of the 17th Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners Expo (August 23-26, 2009, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas) is ''Building a Winning Team in Your Club,'' and each panel session and evening event will carry the sports theme throughout. But the ultimate goal is clear: Adult nightclub owners and every member of their team will be able to take home strategies to add to their club’s game plan.
''In this economy, our entire country—and more specifically, the hundreds of thousands of team members in the adult nightclub industry—faces a gut check,'' says Ed Publications’ Associate Publisher Dave Manack. ED (Exotic Dancer) Publications produces the Annual Expo, the only national adult nightclub industry convention, as well as the Ed Club Bulletin, the adult nightclub industry’s only national business-to-business magazine. ''Either you grit your teeth, bear down and get the job done, or you don’t. If you want to know what you can do to win this game, join us at Expo 2009—you and your teammates will be glad you did.''
For the first time in the history of the Expo, seminars and workshops will be dedicated to each key member of an adult nightclub’s staff: General Managers, House Moms, DJs, Entertainers, Bartenders/Waitresses, and Floormen/Doormen. Why does an adult club need a House Mom? How can clubs recruit, train and keep the best entertainers? How should a club determine what music fits their club’s clientele? What can bartenders and waitresses do to increase a club’s bottom line? What legal issues do general managers face on a daily basis, and how should they deal with those issues? These questions and many more will be answered by a host of industry experts during the Expo’s three days of workshops and panel sessions.
In addition to these unparalleled seminars, the Expo will also feature a 300- booth Tradeshow including businesses providing products and services to the adult nightclub and feature entertainment industries, as well as exclusive evening parties and the 12th Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show.
