Annual Expo Introduces Awards Program This Year
Amsterdam, Netherlands (1 August 2018) – Exhibitors at Euro Attractions Show (EAS) 2018, are encouraged to take part in the Expo’s first annual Best Exhibit Awards. Taking place at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre, EAS welcomes leaders and professionals from the global amusement and entertainment industry. The Best Exhibit Awards will honor and recognize outstanding new products and services developed by IAAPA’s manufacturer and supplier members. A panel of judges made up of IAAPA industry facility members, will evaluate all entries and select the winners in three booth size categories: booth size 9-18 sqm., booth size 19-54 sqm., and booth size larger than 54 sqm. The judges will look at booth design, branding, staffing, and overall appeal.
The Best Exhibit Awards program has been very successful during IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida, and the association is pleased to bring the program to EAS.
“This year we will have the largest show floor in the history of EAS,” shared Jakob Wahl, vice president, IAAPA EMEA Operations. “This is the perfect year to celebrate and highlight the quality and professionalism of our exhibitors during the Expo. Our industry is all about innovation and we know we will see amazing examples while we are in Amsterdam this year.” With more than 14,000 square meters of exhibit space and a show floor spread across six exhibit halls, this year will be the largest in EAS history. The leisure and tourism industry throughout Europe continues to grow and thrive, and the continued growth of EAS is a strong reflection of that success.
Ranging from high-tech equipment and digital solutions to decorations and playgrounds, the product and service offerings during EAS 2018 will be dynamic and diverse. Participants will also discover the latest industry trends including innovative food and beverage concepts and sustainability solutions. With Amsterdam serving as host to this year’s EAS, specific elements that characterize the Dutch leisure landscape will also be increasingly present, including theatrical equipment, holiday park, camping facilities, and more.
