The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo opens its doors today to an expected 25,000 turnout, to see 1,100 exhibiting companies spread over 470,000sq.ft of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.


Many international visitors are expected at the event, which will ostensibly focus on products for amusement parks, but there are always strong offerings for the family entertainment centre business, including many coin-operated amusements.

A wide variety of workshops and events surround IAAPA, including tours of local amusement facilities. The four-day show ends on Friday.
