IAAPA Europe officials have announced exhibit sales for the Euro Attractions Show (EAS) 2009 in Amsterdam are 10 % ahead of comparable sales for EAS 2008 in Munich. One hundred thirty (130) companies have already reserved more than half of the available exhibit space and the show is still seven months away.
“Despite a difficult economic context, EAS 2009 is shaping up to be the most impressive European attractions industry trade show yet, ” said Andreas Andersen, executive director of IAAPA’s European Operations. “We are very pleased with the early exhibit sales for the show and look forward to a very successful event, ” he added.
EAS 2009 will take place 30 September – 2 October, in the state-of-the-art RAI Exhibition & Conference Centre. The trade show floor will be open 10:00 – 18:00 Wednesday and Thursday and 10:00 – 16:00 Friday. The event will include a wide range of meetings and educational seminars, along with a number of special networking events and receptions which will allow attendees to experience the best of the Dutch capital, Amsterdam.
Amsterdam is easy and affordable to reach by train, plane, or motorway and offers reasonable hotel rates.
More than 8, 000 people from 65 countries around the world are expected to participate in EAS 2009 with a large number coming from Central, Northern and Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom, and the MENA countries.
