Third Time’s the Charm: Attending IAAPA Expo Asia
In just one week RCI will be in the shining metropolis that is Shanghai, China for the three-day long 2019 IAAPA Expo Asia show. Largely the main stage for any and all Asia-Pacific amusement industry professionals, IAAPA Expo Asia brings together approximately 8,000+ individuals and 300+ companies all traveling from over 50 countries to discuss popular industry trends, form connections and witness inventive new entertainment solutions. RCI will be attending for the third year in a row to showcase our family-friendly adventure products and explain to visitors of our booth how those very attractions are capable of both providing quick returns on investment for a variety of facilities and thrilling a wide age range.
While most of our time throughout the show will consist of being stationed in booth #2614 inside of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre explaining to guests all of the benefits that come with each product present in our portfolio, our attendance will also allow for a chance to connect with fellow RCI distributor, Highgate Group, and new potential distributor, Climb Korea Co., Ltd., who will be present at their own respective booths. Though exact details cannot yet be disclosed, there are several projects in the works for the Asian region and we are excited to see them through with both established and potential partners. In fact, RCI will be participating in a tour of a manufacturing facility located on the eastern coast of China and conducting a site visit to Gui’an Water Park in Fuzhou, China on top of a current ongoing installation in Thailand to learn even more about how the amusement attractions industry operates throughout Asia.
The unveil of big news continues as RCI and fellow attractions specialist, WhiteWater, will be hinting at their global licensing and manufacturing agreement that will allow RCI to design and produce the Adventure Play line from WhiteWater which includes both harnessed and unharnessed play. Our over ten year relationship with WhiteWater is built on trust and an overall respect for each other’s experience so we’re very excited for what the future will bring with regards to this agreement.
“RCI’s partnership with WhiteWater is without a doubt a step in the right direction,” explained Jon Weston, RCI’s chief sales officer. “We already have several projects in collaboration with WhiteWater lined up that integrate their products with ours to create giant hubs of entertainment for all ages and skill levels.”
IAAPA Expo Asia will take place June 12-14 and will serve as a gathering space for industry professionals of all types such as developers, operators, suppliers and investors. RCI can’t wait to attend and join such an innovative and influential group of individuals!
