February 16th, Clearwater, FL: The industry’s most prestigious “showgirl” dance competition returns for its fifth straight year, as the dates and venue for the 2018 EXOTIC DANCER Invitational (EDI) East Contest have been announced. For the second occasion, the EDI heads to West Palm Beach, FL, and a grand venue owned by Scott & Jennifer Lizza, the truly one-of-a-kind Double Dee’s Ranch.
“Since previous having the opportunity to participate in the 2016 EDI East at Monroe’s, we’re extremely honored to have the best of the best in our industry back in West Palm Beach Florida, especially under our new roof at Double Dee’s,” says Joe Bee, Director Of Operations for Monroe’s of Palm Beach and Double Dee’s Ranch.”Everyone in the adult club business knows it’s always about the entertainers, but because of the commitment to excellence, the EDI’s always seems to attract the most talented individuals in our industry.
“Being a part of any EDI, you will experience what this industry is all about,” Bee adds. “It allows for the opportunity to step out ones familiar market and meet some of most talented MCs, DJs, photographers and future entertainers in our business on a personal level. I enjoy learning something new or sharing something I’ve learned in the adult industry, and EDI allows for that moment throughout the event.”
The EDI contests showcase entertainers in two divisions competing on three straight nights: Newcomers (entertainers with two years or less of “feature” experience) compete on the first night; Showgirls (established feature entertainers) compete on the second night; and the top three competitors from each division compete in the Finals on the last night of the competition. Cash prizes are awarded for both divisions, as well as main titles and mini titles (including sashes and trophies). In addition, the winner of the Showgirl Division will become an automatic nominee for the ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year, the most prestigious award in the industry for national, touring feature entertainers.
“I see this year’s EDI East as the perfect storm, a combination of the best feature entertainers competing, hosted by the Double Dee’s staff, at our brand new state-of the-art-facility,” says Bee. “On behalf of the entire Double Dee’s team we are all extremely honored that the 2018 EDI East is coming to West Palm Beach.”
