Central Florida businesses are taking home field advantage this week as the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions showroom floor opened Tuesday at the Orange County Convention Center. Nearly 50 local businesses, ranging from food vendors to transportation specialists, set-up shop for the 98th annual IAAPA Attractions Expo.

Well yea, it's the second largest convention center/complex in the US. I'm sure that on any given week during the year, several conventions roll through there, some way larger than IAAPA.
So it makes complete sense that depending on the industry being hosted at OCCC, there will be local and regional business who will take advantage and exhibit.
While there aren't a ton of them, I always get a kick out of the handful of vendors who exhibit at IAAPA who have nothing to do with the amusement industry. Rather, they are just exhibiting general products and services I assume in hope of gaining exposure. And who doesn't like a good foot massage...
Walking around a park all day does make your feet pretty sore.
