The newly rebranded EAG International Expo – set to take place at London’s ExCeL from 14th– 16th January 2020 – is extending exhibitor invitations to companies right across the entertainment, attractions and gaming industry sectors for the first time.
As reported by Global Amusements & Play, “EAG was traditionally the major trade event for the coin-operated amusements industry, but next year the show is expanding to offer suppliers to the wider entertainment and leisure industry, an unprecedented opportunity to network and promote their products and services to major buyers. More than 5,000 visitors representing the world’s leading tourist attractions, resorts, leisure parks, arcades, and holiday venues are expected to attend EAG Expo 2020.”
According to Expo organizers, current visitor interest is huge. Martin Burlin, Chairman of EAG Expo said: “We had been expecting healthy levels of interest in EAG Expo 2020 but the response from prospective attendees from around the world has exceeded even our expectations. We are incredibly excited not only by this initial response but also by the wonderful opportunities that the new-look EAG offers exhibitors across the entire industry.”
“EAG International Expo is set to become a vital hub for all involved in entertainment, attractions, and gaming. Alongside significant business opportunities, it will bring the entire industry together to identify and address key challenges and issues.”
“Exhibitors will also be able to access significant promotional opportunities via our own media and PR channels.”
Foundations Entertainment University will be presenting a special 1-Day Session on the last day of the EAG Expo, January 16. Speakers scheduled are Doug Wilkerson (Dynamic Designs & Studio 41b), Frank ‘the Crank’ Seninsky (Amusement Entertainment Management), Yaroslav Sobko (Alpha-Omega Amusements), and Kevin Williams (KWP). Attendees will also receive the new ‘Buyers Power’ Purchase Program discount book that contains more than US$50,000.00 in savings opportunities.
What this could mean? EAG has been growing and now as it is covering more leisure sectors (like the previous ATEI Expo that I attended for many years at Earls Court) it is an Expo that many should highly consider attending. I am looking forward to being a part of the EAG Expo and working closely with BACTA, EUROMAT, Sega, Namco, and many of the European, Middle East, India, and African associations.
