New this year! Brand new ED’s Awards honoring “small” clubs and Miss ExoticDancer.com

 The ED’s Awards Show will now celebrate the “small” club! While it may seem that the “big” guys get all the attention, we at ED Publications know that the “small” club—those under 5 or 6,000 square feet—make up the bulk of adult nightclubs across the country.  To further illustrate that point, we’re going to be presenting two awards for each of our five award regions; one will be for the “large” clubs in the major markets, and one will be for “small” clubs in both major and smaller markets.  “With so many great, multi-million-dollar clubs in this industry, it becomes harder and harder for the smaller clubs to stand out in the crowd,” says ED’s Associate Publisher, Dave Manack.  “That’s why we feel that it’s about time we honor those clubs who, despite their smaller size, are no less successful or award-worthy.”


The one new entertainer-related award is the Miss ExoticDancer.com Award. Each feature entertainer who has been a Miss ExoticDancer.com of the month (which began in October 2010) will be eligible to win.
