he two-day gathering kicked off on Monday 13 May with a meeting of IAAPA Europe’s various committees, with further guests joining in the


evening for dinner and live entertainment. A special performance of Efteling’s Raveleijn show produced by the acclaimed French park Puy du Fou was followed by the award-winning laser/fountain spectacular Aquanura and then socialising in the Efteling Theatre. Staying on site at the Efteling Hotel and Holiday Village Bosrijk, the guests met the following morning for presentations from IAAPA Europe, Efteling, the Dutch trade associations Club van El and Recron, plus sponsors Dotto Trains, Leisure Boulevard, Vekoma, Zierer and JNE&LC. Behind-the-scenes tours of the park were then conducted, focusing on operations, entertainment, accommodation and food & beverage. After lunch the guests were finally sent on their way. An enjoyable spring fixture and a great networking event for the Benelux attractions industry, the get- together also attracted IAAPA members from many other parts of Europe. Here, courtesy of the association, are a few highlights. .
