With just over five months until EXPO 2020 at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas (August 16-19), it’s time to get the pre-convention hype started. And what better way to do that than releasing the details on all of the major EXPO events, including the parties, the certification seminar topics, the Keynote Speaker and more!

A new decade is looming on the immediate horizon, and with it, logical questions arise. How will the gentlemen’s club industry evolve over the next 10 years? What new technology will help operators improve their clubs and streamline their businesses? What new trends will define the industry in the coming decade? And how can clubs attract a younger clientele in order to remain relevant amidst so many competing entertainment options?

EXPO 2020—“Decoding the Future of Your Club”—will help club owners usher in this new decade by answering those key questions. The 28th Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO, slated for August 16th – 19th, will return to Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas after overwhelmingly positive reviews from EXPO 2019 attendees. After a universally enthusiastic reception, the ED University “Certification Training Seminars” are returning, as club operators and their staff will receive “certificates of completion” for attending seminars on very specific areas of club operation. In 2020, training seminar topics include How to Stop Bar Theft, How to Use Facebook and Instagram for Club Marketing, and Security/Conflict De-escalation.

While these Certification Seminars will once again coincide with key areas of club operation, other EXPO 2020 seminars will directly address the future of the industry. The EXPO’s Keynote Address will feature renowned speaker and author David Avrin, who will explain exactly who your “real” competition is and what your customers will expect from you now and in the future.  Our first-ever “Secrets of My Success” Industry Roundtables will feature several of the industry’s most well-known and successful club owners/operators, who will each have their own roundtable in the main panel room at EXPO and can speak with fellow club operators in an informal setting.  And of course, no EXPO would be complete without a forward-thinking Legal Panel. Whether it’s online promotional graphics or in-club smartphone usage, modern technology is creating new legal issues that clubs must contend with. Helmed by industry attorney Luke Lirot and club professionals,  the EXPO 2020 “Picture This” Legal Panel will provide owners and operators with the information they need to stay ahead of the curve — and out of the courtroom. And once again, the EXPO Tradeshow will boast top industry vendors, many of whom have products and services that represent the latest in tech developments.

Serious subjects, no doubt. But as we at ED Publications know very well, our attendees expect to have a great time at EXPO, and Planet Hollywood 2020 will provide many opportunities to do just that. From our first-ever Opening Night “Sunset” Pool Party & NightSwim to the “Chill Day” $10,000 “Carnal Cosplay Contest” — headlined by the ED’s Awards Show at the Criss Angel Theater — the evening events and parties consistently make the Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO the industry’s can’t-miss event of the year.
