What a better place to go and have fun and be amused- and make money!- then in fabulous Las Vegas?
The first-ever edition of the Amusement Expo will take place from March 10 through March 12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, where their exhibits will be commingled with a Fun Expo.
Although fewer than 100 exhibitors had signed up for the combined Amusement Expo and Fun Expo as of mid-January, their numbers are expected to expand significantly by show time.
One indicator of strong support for the combined show was the Jan. 15 announcement by Incredible Technologies that it would exhibit. This is first coin-op spring show that the maker of Golden Tee Golf will be a part of in eight years.
During Amusement Expo, there will host a free seminar program for street vendor operators.
Fun Expo’s seminar program includes the Fun Academy and a series of standalone educational events such as the Party Workshop.
The new Amusement Expo is co-owned by the Amusement and Music Operators Association and the American Amusement Machine Association, both based in Chicago. The show is managed by W.T. Glasgow Inc. (Orland Park, IL), which has long managed AAMA’s Amusement Showcase International, AMOA International Expo and Fun Expo, which is now owned by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.
