LAI Games celebrates its biggest and most successful IAAPA Expo yet

LAI Games, a leader in the interactive game industry, has announced that it enjoyed its biggest and most successful IAAPA Expo to date last month in Orlando, Florida.

LAI Games is pleased to announce that it had a very successful visit to IAAPA Expo 2019, which took place at the Orange County Convention Center from 18 – 22 November. The company showcased a huge range of games on its booth, which was packed with visitors every day of the show.

There were six new games on display: Outnumbered, Pearl Fishery, HYPERpitch, Amazing Alley, Toy Frenzy and the Monster Munch ticket muncher. The company was also highlighting The Big Expansion Pack, featuring three new experiences for the award-winning Virtual Rabbids game.

During the event, LAI Games hosted a live tournament for Outnumbered. This is a new target-shooting video game, with single-player or two-player options. It has been designed to drive repeat play and increase revenue for operators, thanks to a mobile app that is able to reach players outside of the arcade by allowing them to create an account, collect points, and work towards personalised content.

The winners for each stage on the tournament were awarded a trophy, and on the final day, the ultimate winner received an Outnumbered military hat and dog tags.

Also during the show, LAI Games held a joint press conference with D-BOX Technologies, to highlight their collaboration on the motion simulation for the new Virtual Rabbids releases, as well as to introduce Outnumbered. Speakers were D-BOX Sales Director Nicolas Bohly, LAI Games Marketing Director Tabor Carlton and LAI Games VP of Product Development Shannon Perell.

LAI Games received a record number of orders for the new games on show during the event, including the pusher-style redemption game Pearl Fishery and the HYPERpitch baseball-style pitching game.

Last month, the company also announced that it had hired sales veteran John Bugh as Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Business Development.
