The Gentlemen's Club Expo is a 4-day long event, usually held in August in Las Vegas, and is the only national (USA) convention and tradeshow for the Adult Nightclub Industry.
There are 100+ booths set up for people providing products or services to the Industry, and this includes feature performers and/or their agencies. There are also seminars held at periodic times throughout the Expo, for employees, managers and owners of strip clubs to improve their knowledge and expertise.
Throughout the evenings there are various activities including an opening night party and closing night feature showcase party. During the main nights, the ED (Exotic Dancer) Awards are held. The ED Awards have been part of the Expo since 1998, and are the equivalent of the Oscars for the strip club industry. Entertainers have to pass regional events held prior to this, known as the Exotic Dancer Invitationals (EDI's).
The 2022 ED Expo is scheduled to take place from Sunday 14th to Wednesday 17th August 2022. It was scheduled to be at Bally's Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, but due to refurbishment activity is now being held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, in Nevada.
