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.”


penisACE2012The two-level, 24,000-square-foot, 300,000-item Museum’s website notes that, “The Museum was created between a partnership of a Preacher and a Pornographer.”  In this case the preacher was Rev. Ted McIlvena and the ‘pornographer’ was Exotic Dancer Hall of Famer Harry Mohney of the Deja Vu and Larry Flynt’s Hustler Clubs chains.  They founded the Museum in 2008 to preserve erotic artifacts, fine art and film and the venue is “dedicated to the belief that sexual pleasure and fun are natural aspects of the human experience, that such pleasure must be made available to all, and that our individual sexuality belongs to each of us.”

That sounds good, but what sounds even better is, where else can you go to see vintage adult video from the early 1900s up through “Deep Throat” on 50 monitors; old Peep Show booths in working condition; a penis sculpture made out of 1000,000 pennies; ancient sex toys that are both interesting and scary; Larry Flynt’s gold-plated wheelchair with maroon velour upholstery; and, of course, a synthetic replica of John Holmes’ most impressive limb.

The Museum is owned and managed by the Exodus Trust, a non-profit California Trust.  The resident curator is Dorian Gomez.  Museum photos by Tabitha Zuniga.
“I know EXPO attendees will be both impressed and intrigued by everything the Museum has to offer,” says Mohney, who will be attending the reception as a member of the ACE National Board.
The Erotic Heritage Museum at 3275 Industrial Road is open from 11 am-4 pm Tuesday-Thursday and Sunday; and from noon-10 pm on Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit www.eroticheritagemuseumlasvegas.com  
 
And the party continues on ...


Miss-Exotic-2012-4adFollowing the ACE Reception at the Erotic Heritage Museum, EXPO attendees can walk right out the Museum front door and go about thirty feet to the front door of Deja Vu Showgirls where your EXPO badge will get you free entry to see the sexy dancers of Deja Vu as well as the semi-finals of the Miss Exotic United States Contest Series produced by Rio Rivers.  Statewide winners will compete onstage at Deja Vu and the finalists from that competition will then compete on Tuesday, August 28, on the Tradeshow Mainstage during EXPO 2012.
The semi-finals at Deja Vu Showgirls at 3247 Industrial Road will start at 9:30 pm and will be hosted by Melissa Wolf, Teri Weigel and Aspen Reign.  Deja Vu will provide limo and bus transportation from Mandalay Bay to the Erotic Heritage Museum, and to Deja Vu Showgirls.

Multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industry

 once again converges on Las Vegas for its annual gathering, the 22nd Gentlemen’s Club EXPO

EXPO highlighted by first-ever “Staff Training Seminars,” hot-button legal panels and the “Chill Day” Pool Party and Bikini Contest

EXPO-2014-logo-final2
September 12th, Clearwater, FL: If the 2014 Gentlemen’s Club EXPO (August 17-20, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas) proved one thing, it’s that the EXPO isn’t just for club owners anymore. In fact, while the 22nd Annual EXPO brought in hundreds of adult nightclub owners from across the U.S. and around the world, scores of club staff also attended the EXPO, including general managers, floor managers, DJs, waitstaff, security and more.  A focal point for these club staffers was certainly the two days of “Staff Training Seminars” offered at the EXPO, seminars which targeted very specific areas of club operation including management, security, bartending, waitressing, DJs, promotions and social media, along with an impressive Keynote Address from Renegade Hospitality’s Tim Kirkland which exemplified the EXPO’s theme, “Formula Win: Turn Your Staff Into a Winning Crew.”

“The EXPO’s ‘Staff Training Seminars’ featured three seminars occurring simultaneously, which is the first time we’ve ever attempted that format,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher, Dave Manack. ED Publications, also publishers of the industry’s only national trade magazines, has produced the Annual EXPO since its inception in 1993. “But these seminars were as well received as we could have possibly hoped, and it further proves that this is a direction in which the industry wants to see us proceed. We want to help educate every area of club staff with true experts from both inside and outside of our industry, and we are excited to know that our attendees appreciated our efforts.” ....Read More
