(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- Few people thought it was possible that the somewhat fragmented billion-dollar adult nightclub industry could come together for it's own convention and tradeshow, but this year will mark the 10-Year Anniversary of the Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo.

Expo 2002, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas August 27-29, will attract over 3,000 owners and operators of gentlemen's clubs, the entertainers who perform at the clubs, and the vendors who supply products and services to the clubs. They will meet for three days of Industry Legal & Marketing Panel Sessions, a 250-booth Tradeshow, Feature Entertainer Showcases, the 2002 Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show, the Club Owners Appreciation Party, and updates from the Association of Club Executives (ACE).

Title sponsors for Expo 2002, which is produced by Exotic Dancer Publications, include Budweiser, Associated Underwriters, Scores of New York, the Spearmint Rhino club chain, and the Deja Vu club chain. The agenda for Expo 2002 is as follows:

Tuesday, August 27

Noon-3 pm: Semi-Finals of the Miss Exotic Dancer USA Contest Series at Las Vegas' newest adult nightclub Jaguars, with complimentary buffet lunch, plus the opportunity to see statewide winners from over 25 states compete to earn a slot in the Finals Contest for Miss Exotic Dancer USA.

3-8 pm: The Expo 2002 Tradeshow featuring 250 companies with products and services designed to increase and improve both club and entertainer business, plus Feature Entertainer Showcases by Continental Theatrical and the Lee Network on the Martin Lighting Mainstage.

9 pm-midnight: The Opening Night Party at the rocking House of Blues at Mandalay Bay introducing over 30 new feature entertainers at the Newcomers Ball, and then capping the night with a surprise show (think G-strings, but a show for the ladies). Sponsored by DJPower, G. Morgan Insurance, R&D Promotions and Marc Anthony's.

Wednesday, August 28

10-11:30 am: The "Big Picture" Legal Panel on how the outcomes of the four significant U.S. Supreme Court cases heard last term and cases the High Court is likely to hear could affect adult nightclubs. A brief explanation of the significance of these cases by the First Amendment Lawyers Association (Fala) attorneys who argued the cases before the High Court. Moderated by attorney J. Michael Murray.

11:30 am-12:30 pm: The "Key Issues" Legal Panel, a chance to learn about the key issues affecting adult clubs from a dozen top Fala attorneys giving personalized attention in an intimate round table setting. Issues include: Zoning, Employee-Independent Contractor Status, Obscenity, Criminal Issues, Liability, Internet issues, and Surviving a Club Raid. Coordinated by Ed Editor Dave Manack.

2-4 pm: The "Future of Our Industry" Panel. As the Expo marks it's 10th Anniversary, what does the future hold for the adult nightclub industry? The answer is found by tapping into the experience of three veteran club professionals (the old vets) and the enthusiasm of three aggressive new club owners (the young Turks). Let the sparks fly. Refereed by attorney Luke Lirot.

4-8 pm: The Expo 2002 Tradeshow, plus a Feature Entertainer Showcase by Pure Talent on the Martin Mainstage.

9-11:30 pm: The Exotic Dancer Awards Show. Nationally known comedian Robert Schimmel makes his hilarious return as the host of the always-surprising, lways-entertaining Exotic Dancer 2002 Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show in Mandalay Bay's luxurious Storm Theater. Comedy, music, incredible sets, performances by today's top exotic entertainers, and the chance to honor our industry's top nightclubs, entertainers and service companies. Sponsored by Remy Amerique, Big Al's and DrayNay Beverages.

Thursday, August 29

10-11:30: The "Club Owner On Trial" Panel. Imagine you are on trial. We re-enact the courtroom proceedings of "The Club Owner On Trial - the Criminal Issues: Charges of money laundering, racketeering and obscenity." Our legal experts put on the case, and then dissect it. You take notes in the event you're ever on the stand. Moderated by attorney Brad Shafer.

11:30 am-12:30 pm: The "Fighting Big Brother" Panel on maintaining a club's profitability in an adverse political climate. How to eavesdrop on the Religious Right and Big Brother as they meddle with our business. Learn how municipalities share information designed to close adult clubs. Best yet, top Fala attorneys give chilling portrayals of the leaders of the Right. Moderated by Ace President Micheal Ocello.

2-3 pm: The "Fine Art of Marketing" Panel where a panel of marketing pros will pass on proven marketing techniques, both old stand-bys and revolutionary new concepts. Moderated by Jack Pepper of Galardi South Enterprises. 3-4 pm: The "New for Your Club" Panel with details on the latest products and services available to improve both the look and the operation of adult clubs. Moderated by Joe Hall of Deja Vu.

4-8 pm: The Expo 2002 Tradeshow, plus Feature Entertainer Showcases by Universal Entertainment and Legacy Entertainment.

9-11:30 pm: 1st Annual Club Owner Appreciation Party, sponsored by Mal Entertainment, Pure Talent and Future Brands.

Expo 2002 officially wraps Thursday night, August 29th, but the action continues on Friday and Saturday when the 6th Annual Exotic Dancer Fan Fair takes over at Mandalay Bay. The Expo badge can be used to attend all Fan Fair events. The agenda for Fan Fair 2002 is as follows:

Friday, August 30

It's your chance to see tomorrow's stars today.

Saturday, August 31

1-5 pm: It will be more intimate this year at the Fan Fair Tradeshow where fans can meet one-on-one with their favorite feature entertainers in a club setting where the girls can let their hair (and tops) down and pose for photos, sign guys up to their fan clubs and promo their products at Club Paradise, Exotic Dancer's Club of the Year for 2001.
