2013 IAAPA Attractions Expo to Be Biggest on Record


Alexandria, VA, USA — Officials for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) have announced that IAAPA Attractions Expo 2013 will feature more square footage of new product and service innovations for the global attractions industry than any of its Expos in the past 10 years. The conference and trade show will take place Nov. 18-22 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

As of Oct. 31, 1,100 companies have signed up to showcase new ride concepts, food and beverage, the latest technologies, and much more in 135 product categories on more than 522,000 square feet of exhibit space – the size of approximately 13 football fields. The indoor space at the North/South Halls of the Orange County Convention Center is completely sold out; the outdoor exhibit space is the largest in the show’s history, but a few spaces are still available.

More than 110 companies (10 percent of the exhibitors) are lined up to make their debut at the Expo as first-time exhibitors.

“Wear your comfortable shoes,” advises IAAPA President and CEO, Paul Noland. “There are too many business-building ideas to count in the nine miles of aisles at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2013. Get ready to take full advantage of the new innovations, learning opportunities, and networking experiences the Expo has to offer.”
