January 8th, Clearwater, FL: Returning for its third straight year as the premier, invitational-only feature entertainer competition, ED Publications, producer of the EDI (EXOTIC DANCER Invitational), has announced that the EDI West 2016 will be held at Platinum 84 in Denver, April 21-23. The EDI East 2016 will be held June 2-4 (location TBA).
Once again, the industry’s top feature entertainers will compete for top honors in three divisions, including the hottest “Newcomers,” the more established and successful “Showgirl” features, and the prestigious “Champion” Division, reserved exclusively for previous ED's Entertainer of the Year nominees/winners and past EDI Showgirl and Champion Division winners. For the winners of the EDI’s “Champion” Division, this honor also includes an automatic nomination for the prestigious ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year Award and the opportunity to perform on stage at the Annual ED’s Awards Show during the 2016 Gentlemen’s Club EXPO in New Orleans (August 7-10 at the Hilton Riverside).
“We have found a very enthusiastic ‘partner’ club for the EDI West with Platinum 84, and we couldn't be more excited about bringing our contest to the Mile High city and a great venue,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher Dave Manack, founder and producer of the EDI contests. “Platinum 84’s Scott Richter and the staff at the club have already shown us that the EDI West will be a can’t-miss industry event. April can’t come soon enough!”
The 2015 and 2014 EDIs were full of perks and surprises, including special travel bags with the EDI logo loaded with free gifts for the competing entertainers, and guest judges including members of the popular rock band Steel Panther. Even more surprises are in store for 2016!
