The attraction industry’s global association should have no problem attracting professionals to its flagship conference this November.

The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo returns to Orlando, Florida’s Orange County Convention Center from November 18-22. IAAPA Expo 2019 brings together leaders of theme and amusement parks from across the country in order to network, collaborate and exchange best practices.

In today’s competitive environment, this kind of gathering can provide a boon to operations large and small. Here are a few reasons professionals in the attraction space should look forward to this year’s event.

Size and Variety

IAAPA Expo is the premier annual event in the amusement and attraction world. Networking and learning opportunities will encompass every facet of the industry. From water parks to zoos and every niche in between, there will be opportunities to learn from business leaders and valuable lessons to take home.

In-Depth Learning Experiences

While the trade show floor will be filled with organizations to partner or network with, IAAPA has more ways to get a deeper understanding of the currents influencing the industry. Behind the scene tours, learning lunches and professional development programs will provide attendees a more thorough experience.

Special Event/Speaker Opportunities

A wide range of speakers will present at this year’s event, providing attendees ample opportunity to hear meaningful advice and perspective relevant to their specific business. Twenty-four CEOs will speak this year, and companies represented include Disney Parks & Resorts, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Dave & Buster’s, the San Diego Zoo and more.
