Expo News

Many European Companies Win Prestigious 2012 IAAPA Brass Ring Awards

During IAAPA Attractions Expo 2012, the largest worldwide trade show for the attractions industry held November 12 – 16 in Orlando, amusement parks and attractions from across the globe were awarded an IAAPA Brass Ring Award. This prestigious award is given to companies and individuals for excellence in: marketing, live entertainment, human resources, retail, family entertainment centers, new product development, trade show exhibits at IAAPA Attractions Expo, and new this year, food and beverage excellence.

The tradition of the brass ring in the attractions industry dates back to the carousels of the late 1800s when rings were suspended above riders; low enough to reach, but high enough to pose a challenge. Most rings were made of iron, so grabbing the brass ring was the rare and cherished prize. Skilled riders who grabbed a brass ring earned a second ride on the carousel. Today, the term ‘brass ring’ is synonymous with high achievement in the attractions industry.

Among hundreds of finalists from amusement parks, water parks, zoos, aquariums, museums, and family entertainment centers around the world, many winners were from facilities all across Europe. These facilities were awarded during the official ceremony at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2012.

IAAPA Europe congratulates the European winners in the following categories:
