Europe’s most important conference and trade fair related to theme and amusement parks, more known as ‘Euro Attractions’ (EAS) will be held in Barcelona on September, with plans to host more than 450 companies from 60 different countries during those days.
Some of the special and educational events will be in PortAventura Convention Center and PortAventura World facilities. According to Fernando Aldecoa, General Manager Operations of World PortAventura, “EAS 2016 is a key event for all Spanish parks. It is also an opportunity to get to know about a little-known, but very important, business area like this one.
It is expected that this edition will be a real success, more than 9,000 professional visitors are estimated to attend the fair, 80% of who hold top management positions.
“It was a very strategic decision to bring EAS 2016 to Barcelona, Spain. Spain is a country with strong tourism and we feel that the attractions industry is a big driver of successful tourism. Having EAS 2016 here reinforces this belief” said Karen Staley, Senior Vice President of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), during the celebration of a press conference
