George Dobler, Sales and Product Manager, Sunkid, Booth #4429

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Expo? For me, IAAPA Attractions Expo is one of the most important events. It's a great gathering of experts where we an discuss new trends. 

What are you excited to share with attendees? Last year we were introducing some new products - e.g. the Sundancer Ride for amusement parks and a tube conveyor system for water park slides. This year we will show for both some reference projects already realized. We are looking forward to sharing those experiences and seeing how this is applies to new projects.

Where do you find your creativity? We were very creative company, where every employee listens to the market carefully. So creativity happens a lot during coffee brakes, where everyone's ideas come up.

Ted Molter, Chief Marketing Officer, San Diego Zoo Global, IAAPA, ICAE

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Expo? I am looking for innovation ideas that will amplify the brand and guest experience at our Zoo and Safari Park. We will be paying close attention to entertainment and guest assistance technologies, retail enhancements and overall fun engagement activities for our guests.

What are you excited to share with attendees? I am looking forward introducing our new executive management team members to the IAAPA Attractions Expo experience. Many of them are from other industries and IAAPA Attractions Expo provides a significant intensive exposure to newcomers. 

Where do you find your creativity? I find that tapping into the global network engaged in IAAPA Expo to be one of the most significant ways to find creativity. From the show floor and Brass Rings Awards, to committee work and social events, Expo attendees will have numerous opportunities to share and seek creativity.

Dan Sher, President, State Fair Mini Donuts Inc., Booth #3759

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Expo? We are looking forward to meeting new people and seeing new businesses from all over the world.

What are you excited to share with attendees? We love showing concessionaires that there is an easier way to get hot and fresh mini donuts without the need for hot oil or expensive hoods. Our pre-made donuts and small but power oven can go almost anywhere and give people the same (some say better) hot and fresh mini donuts made famous by state fairs around the country.

Where do you find your creativity? I love that we've developed a way to make them more accessible. My creativity is largely geared towards finding new venues and opportunities to introduce our product to as many people as possible.

Jennifer McDonald, Palm Beach Zoo, Guest Services Manager

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Expo? As a member of the Exhibitor Awards Committee, I always look forward to finding out about all of the new and exciting products and concepts from across the entire industry, especially those I would not normally encounter in the course of my job. From roller coasters to water filtration systems to food items and everything in between, it's always a treat to see the latest innovations. 

What's a memorable experience you've had at IAPPA Attractions Expo? One my most memorable experiences at IAAPA Attractions Expo was getting the chance to meet Disney legends Marty Sklar and Jack Lindquist after an education session a few years ago. This experience highlighted an important part of the IAAPA experience: you can rub elbows with everyone in the industry, from pioneers to newcomers. 

Where do you find your creativity? I often find creativity by talking to people who have an outside perspective. Friends, family, guests, and volunteers often have creative thoughts that are outside the box, simply because they don't know there is a box they are supposed to stay within.

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Expo? This year we are partnering with Give Kids The World (GKTW) and IAAPA to host a contest on our bowling lanes in our booth to raise money for GKTW, which provides week long, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. With a donation to GKTW, all IAAPA attendees will have the chance to bowl a 5-frame game of Monster Factory. If you Match the Monster created in our BES X Bowler Entertainment System, you win! We think attendees will have blast, but we are more excited to see, as a community, how much money we will be able to raise during the week of IAAPA for GKTW. The prize, if someone is able to Match the Monster, is $10,000 with $5,000 going to the winner and $5,000 to the charity. 

What are you excited to share with attendees? We are always excited to have our customers use and try our products at the show. This year we will showcase our Highway66 mini bowling along with full size bowling lanes and TMS String Pinspotters and our best BES X Bowler Entertainment System, which will be used in conjunction with the GKTW charity event with IAAPA.

Where do you find your creativity? We have a passion for innovating and developing products that help our customers generate new and increased traffic, repeat business and ultimately more money - products that focus on customer needs or solving problems. Trade show are ideal venues that allow us to show our products and give customers the chance to get hands-on experience and talk to our experts on-site about the impact these products can have on their businesses. It's also a great way for us to engage with customers, which keeps pushing us to do bigger, better and bolder things - to take tings beyond what you can imagine.
