Amusement Expo to Change Format & Schedule
Responding to preferences by exhibitors and attendees alike, and reflecting trends in trade shows around the country, the AAMA-AMOA Amusement Expo board of directors announced today that starting next year, the annual event for the coin-op and revenue-generating amusement, music and family entertainment industry will be a three-day program, featuring one day of education and two days of exhibits.
"The on-site and post-event polling conducted in conjunction with this year's Expo showed a strong preference for two full days of exhibits and an expanded education program," said Expo Chairman John Pascaretti. "The show's leadership is committed to making the show as valuable as possible and we feel the new format addresses this issue in a major, positive way."
Added Expo Vice Chairman Chris Felix: "As an exhibitor, I believe this move is a great way to sustain the Expo's energy, enthusiasm and excitement from start to finish. We started the process by condensing exhibit hours this year, but next year's schedule represents a bold step in making the trade show more productive and by putting a greater emphasis on continuing education."
