It’s that time of year when thousands of theme park industry movers and shakers descend on sunny Florida for four days of seminars, big-bucks deals, and, of course, the revealing of new ideas and rides that we’ll all be riding one day soon.
According to IAPPA, 33,996 registered participants, including 23,154 qualified buyers representing 10,652 buying companies registered to attend. There were 1,080 exhibiting companies represented on the expansive trade show floor that covered more than 515,000 square feet of exhibit space – 26% more than pandemic hit 2021. That’s all good news, so it’s no wonder the event kicked off with a Guinness world record for the most streamers popped at the same time in one place! (1,116 if you want to know!)
Let’s take a quick look at some of the highlights…
