IAAPA EMEA Spring Forum 2018 will feature a number of tours, including...

Tayto Park

tayto-park-rideCombining the thrill of a theme park with the conservation efforts of a zoo, Tayto Park provides guests with a sure-to-be memorable experience. The attractions at Tayto Park's theme park run the gamut, from classic amusement rides to a tour of a Tayto potato crisps factory. The zoo provides a close look at a wide variety of big cats and primates, all while educating guests on their role in conservation.

Guinness Storehouse

Guinness StorehouseCreated to appeal to a younger crowd and create a contemporary home for the classic Irish company, Guinness Storehouse is a prime example of a brand successfully becoming experience. How? By telling its story in a way that invites visitors to explore the familiar beverage on many levels--literally. The five-story building devotes each floor to a specific theme like taste and advertising.
