“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.
