IAAPA Preview I


The Future of Fun: IAAPA’s annual conference and trade show set for November 12-16 in Orlando


AAPA Attractions Expo is the global marketplace of innovation for the multi-billion-dollar global attractions industry, where the business of fun gets done. This year’s


Expo will move ‘Fun Forward’, accding to organisers, as well as ‘Build the Future’, as more than 35,000 global amusement park and attractions industry professionals from more than 100 countries will gather to buy, learn, and network at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.


Showcasing innovation The expo will feature more than 1,000 exhibiting companies showcasing their latest innovations, offering countless networking opportunities for professionals from around the world and bringing industry experts together for inspiring discussions. This year’s trade show floor will fill 560,000 square feet (52,026 sq m) of exhibit space displaying products and services in 125 different business categories. For the first time in Expo history, the show floor will extend beyond the walls of the convention center into a custom-built structure that will host 130 additional exhibitors. The ‘Exploration Station,’ located adjacent to the outdoor exhibit space, will also feature local Central Florida fare with a selection of food trucks. Products featured at Exploration Station will include go- karts, golf simulators, karaoke party machines, baseball simulators, new experiences in virtual reality, ziplines, arcade games, and more.
