EAG International 2015 will take place on 13th-15th January, a little earlier than previous years
The new edition will be heralded by two major events, as EAG International is joined by the Visitor Attraction Expo.
Launched only 6 years ago, EAG International has attracted a loyal following and is already regarded by many as the main annual event for the UK’s amusements and coin-op industries.
Organizers have been careful to ensure that as the show grows, it keeps place with market trends and continues to deliver tangible value to all participants. EAG International 2015 will take place on 13th-15th January, a little earlier than previous years under a new tenancy agreement with ExCel, securing the show’s future at this world class venue.
The new edition will be heralded by, not one, but two major events, as EAG International is joined by the Visitor Attraction Expo, an exciting new show presented by BALPPA. Both events will be held at the same time, with visitors able to pass freely between shows with a single badge.
EAG Chairman Martin Burlin welcomed the opportunity saying, “BALPPA has been a strong supporter of EAG International for several years and we’re absolutely delighted that they have agreed to stage this exciting new show alongside EAG International. The new event will have the same opening hours as EAG International, with visitors enjoying access to both shows with a single badge. The Visitor Attraction Expo will be aimed at operators of leisure parks, zoos and other static attractions, some of whom are already regular EAG International visitors.
“For the visitor with business interests in both the attractions and coin-op sectors the benefits of having two shows at the same venue will be considerable“, revealed Martin Burlin.
Explaining the initiative, BALPPA Chief Executive Paul Kelly commented, “We already hold our Annual General Meeting and Annual Dinner during EAG International with many of our 300 plus members attending the show. The decision to launch the Visitor Attraction Expo was taken after numerous requests from our members. I’m absolutely delighted that we now have our own show.”
Savvy visitors have long understood the importance of registering early for EAG International and with registration already open at www.eagexpo.com, visitors to the website can secure the best hotel and travel deals.
