By popular demand … The Annual Gentlemen’s
 Club EXPO returns to New Orleans!

December 29, Clearwater, FL:  The Empire Strikes Back. The Silence of the Lambs. Evil Dead 2. The Road Warrior. The Godfather (Part 2). All of these are counted among sequels that equal or surpass their originals. In August 2016, another may be added to this list: EXPO New Orleans: Part Deux.

After enjoying resounding praise from attendees, the (24th Annual) Gentlemen’s Club EXPO will see a return to the Big Easy and the Hilton Riverside August 7-10, 2016. In a recent poll of 2015 EXPO attendees and industry pros, when asked which city they’d like to see host EXPO 2016, New Orleans received more number-one votes than any other location.

“With so many people on-site at EXPO 2015 who loved the decision to move the convention to New Orleans, and with it doing so well in our post-EXPO poll, it made our decision to bring the EXPO back to the Big Easy … well, an easy one!” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher, Dave Manack. ED Publications is the producer of the Annual EXPO. “Were back at the Hilton, but the EXPO will have a very fresh face in the hotels brand-new, first-floor convention area. Well also have some surprises in store for our parties and 19th Annual EDs Awards Show!”

A brand-new, eight-page EXPO 2016 “preview” brochure is now available for viewing or download at www.theEDexpo.com website. Among the convention details revealed in this brochure include an extensive look at the upcoming EXPO seminars and panel sessions, which feature the “General Managers Day” and “Small Club Owners Day” seminars, as well as “Election Day” panel sessions that will specifically address the 2016 Presidential Election and the impact it may have on the adult nightclub industry. Other subjects addressed at this year’s EXPO seminars include how to prevent club shootings and similar incidents, turning “tweets” into butts in your club’s seats, the rise of “urban” clubs, a hands-on “DJ School” seminar and much more!

The 2016 EXPO will also present the 19th Annual ED’s Awards Show, another outrageous Opening Night event on Bourbon Street and other surprises that will help this “sequel” out-do the first EXPO held in the Big Easy.
