Park World looks ahead to three important days for the amusement industry in Andalucia. Staged by IAAPA and EAASI, the show is supported this time by the Spanish parks association AEPA and the national suppliers’ collective AFEMO, as well as several other European trade bodies.“We are really excited to host EAS 2007 in Spain,” says AEPA operative secretary Lamberto Fresnillo. “The educational sessions and exhibit floor will represent the most exciting and innovative ideas. This show is a must for anyone doing business in the industry.” Located in the Andulucian region, it is hoped Seville will provide a welcome winter retreat for visitors from Northern Europe. A beautiful city, it is also home to the Isla Magica amusement park, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2007. EAS attendees will be able to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the park on the second day of the show. Around 150 manufacturers and suppliers are expected to exhibit on the two-room showfloor, including many of the industry’s big names, and after last year’s unofficial ’boycott’ in Vienna, many Italian names will be back again too. Since IAAPA became involved in the EAS, it has steadily grown the education and seminar programme and in Seville there are some promising sessions planned, plus a comprehensive 4-day AEPA Institute, providing a detailed study of branding, mar keting and services standards for attractions. The Euro Attractions Show 2007 takes place from Tuesday to Thursday, January 30 to February 1 at the FIBES Convention Center, Seville, Spain. Limited direct flights are available to Seville, but connections are available via Madrid, or it’s a 2-hour drive from Malaga.
