At DFB, we’re not afraid to admit it: we’re theme park nerds. We get excited when we hear about upcoming projects big and small, and we’ve had multiple discussions about why it’s so dark in Fantasyland (seriously, can we get some lights, Disney?). If you and your family pay attention to the Disney World trash cans or count the number of benches in each park, you might be interested in a mega theme park convention happening later this year.
The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (or IAAPA for short) hosts a HUGE expo where amusement park professionals come to show off the latest tech, attractions, and more. Now, we know the dates for the 2022 IAAPA Expo; let’s take a look!
The IAAPA Expo is a huge trade show event for the attractions industry. Guests can come to the expo to meet industry professionals while learning about upcoming projects and experiencing the latest innovations. Think of it like the ultimate place for all theme park people to get together and show off their stuff!
This year, the IAAPA Expo is set to happen from November 15th to November 18th, 2022. Tickets aren’t on sale quite yet, but now’s the time to start planning (and saving!).
The event happens in two parts. First, there’s the conference, which takes place from November 14th to November 17th. Then, there’s the trade show, which runs from November 15th to November 18th. Keep in mind that the dates are subject to change.
If you’re interested in learning more about what it takes to run a theme park, this is the event for you! In the meantime, stay tuned for all the latest Disney news and theme park updates.
