Operators demonstrated confidence that the overall U.S. economy may be improving slightly at this year’s 2012 Amusement Expo in Las Vegas.
Show statistics indicated a five percent increase in attendance over last year. Among both attendees and exhibitors, there was also a greater optimism about the future of their businesses than in 2011.
Almost every category surpassed 2011 statistics. The number of exhibitor booths rose to 144 from 135 last year. The show attracted 31 new exhibitors. Total attendance was 2961, including 1384 buyers.
The trade show was again run co-operatively by the Amusement & Music Operators Association (AMOA) and the American Amusement Machine Association (AAMA).
The Amusement Expo was cross-marketed with the Pizza Expo, but this year the crossover numbers decreased, totalling 82 compared to 318 in 2011. On the second day, pizza show attendees could attend the music and games show.
The National Bulk Vending Association (NBVA) convention was located on the Amusement Expo show floor for the second year. Twenty-three exhibitors contracted 49 booths, contributing approximately 270 attendees.
More than 500 people attended 12 seminar sessions, up almost 200 from last year. Fifty FEC operators participated in an in-depth pre-expo educational experience, run by the Foundations Entertainment University.
