State of the Union

From industry legend Michael J. Peter!

There are only a handful of people in the history of the adult nightclub industry who require little to no introduction—Michael J. Peter is one of those people.  Often credited as the forerunner of the modern gentlemen’s club, Peter bought his first club in Florida in 1980 and the industry hasn’t been the same since.  Peter’s Master’s degree in hotel and restaurant management and hospitality from Cornell University’s renowned school of Hotel and Restaurant Management would define his operational style, as he introduced the idea of first-class operations, five-star dining, entertainers in gowns, cleanliness and more into his clubs.

Culture to EXPO 2012

Erotic Heritage Museum Reception To Add Some “Culture” To EXPO

main-exhibit-hallNobody says we can’t have a little “culture” at an EXPO party.  So on Sunday, Aug. 26, following the ACE National Board meeting, board members and club owners who have checked in early for EXPO 2012 will be treated to a private party and reception at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas.

The Association of Club Executives (ACE) National Board will meet during EXPO 2012 from 4 pm to 6 pm on Sunday, Aug. 26., at the host hotel, Mandalay Bay, and then adjourn for a very special party and reception from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Erotic Heritage Museum.  Club owners and other industry professionals who arrive on Sunday are also invited.  
“In the past we’ve simply done the ACE after-party in a meeting room at the host hotel,” says ED Publisher Don Waitt.  “This year, since it is the 20-Year Anniversary of the EXPO, we wanted to do something special.  So why not do a private party and reception at one of the largest museums of erotica in the world.”

It Wouldn’t Be A Reunion...

It Wouldn’t Be A Reunion Without A Feature Entertainer Showcase

feature2011One of the most popular events at past EXPOs was the Feature Entertainer Showcase where club owners had the opportunity to see the industry’s top feature acts, as well as hot up-and-coming acts, perform their shows.  Some years there were two nights of showcases.  In recent years the EXPO presented other types of nighttime entertainment, but as plans were made for the 2012 show booking agent Dave Michaels of A-List Features piped in, saying, “If this is a Reunion EXPO, then you need to do the return of the Feature Entertainer Showcase.”
