Brass Ring winners announced for IAAPA Expo Asia 2024

Winners for the IAAPA Brass Ring Best Exhibit Awards at IAAPA Expo Asia 2024 were announced today, the second day the trade show floor was open. The tradition of the brass ring, a term now synonymous with spectacular achievement, dates to the 1800s when rings were hung on carousels to pose a fun challenge for riders. Successfully grabbing a ring while riding the carousel earned the rider a prize, which could include a free ride. Most rings were made of iron, but a few were made of brass, so grabbing the brass ring was a coveted and celebrated treat.

The IAAPA Brass Ring Awards honor this tradition by celebrating achievements of excellence throughout the global attractions industry. Applicants were judged on their booth design, branding, staffing, product in booth, and overall appeal.

This year marks the inaugural Image Award. This award recognizes the most outstanding/best overall exhibit booth at IAAPA Expo Asia. Consideration for the Image Award does not require submission of an application.
