With three full days packed with panel sessions, seminars, a 300-booth tradeshow, rare networking opportunities and exclusive, industry-only evening parties—including the Annual "ED's" Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show—it's no wonder that we've devoted an entire issue of Club Bulletin to coverage of the 19th Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners EXPO! The 36-page section showcases a complete EXPO recap, including full editorial coverage of all workshops and seminars, a complete list of 2011 ED's Award Winners, and hundreds of photos of attendees, sponsors and exhibitors.
This issue also offers a special celebration for two of this year's ED's award winners. This article, "From Vietnam to the EXOTIC DANCER Hall of Fame," tells the story of longtime industry pros Randy Beasley and Duke Dearing, each of whom served their country bravely in the Vietnam War. Both went on to work for the Michael J. Peter organization in Florida, and were both key players in the introduction and implementation of the modern, "upscale gentlemen's club" concept. The two remain close friends to this day, and were inducted together into the EXOTIC DANCER Hall of Fame at this year's EXPO.
