On Tuesday, November 13th, we were pleased to see the IAAPA team stop by our booth for a surprise visit to present Dick with this exceptional award. IAAPA’s award committee chooses a winner for this category based on the benefit of the product or service, originality and uniqueness, quality of the products design, and innovation. Out of several applicants, Chance Rides took first place in this category!

Award winners were given the privilege of presenting an award, the following day of the show, during the Brass Ring Award Ceremony. Chance Rides was given the opportunity to present not one, but two awards, to fellow industry leaders in specific categories. The awards Chance presented for were the Most Creative Property-Wide Event for an organization with an annual attendance of more than a million, which was given to Ocean Park Corporation, Hong Kong China.
