Iaapa last minute

Thursday, October 30, 2003 9:04 AM
At the last minute, my workplace decided that it would be beneficial for me to attend this year's Iaapa. My question: What's the latest you can register, and will they rush-mail my pass out to me? The other question is is there any hotel vancancies available in the area?

Yes, but they asked me to reasearch it a bit. They just told me all of this almost 1 hour ago.

I just need my questions answered, preferrably pretty quick. Sorry about the rush.

I don't know anything about registration for the event or anything, but the hotel would be easy to look up. Just go to hotwire or orbitz or any place like that. I personally use www.choicehotels.com when I'm looking for a room.

Thanks. Now all I need to know is about registration deadlines. The website's registration form is still up so should I assume that means I can still register? My question only comes because the website says passes will be sent out mid-october.

I got my credentials last week.

Several years ago, I registered late and just picked up my badge at the registration booth. It costs more that way, but can be done. You can also register at the show, so there really isn't a deadline per se. The price just keeps going up, that's all.

Everything you really need to know (including telephone numbers for information you can't find) about the event itself is available at http://www.iaapaorlando.com . If you can't find it there, try http://www.iaapa.org .

Thank you. I'm going to be there Nov. 19-22. Maybe I'll see some buzzers there.

IAAPA is a major amusement trade show. Coaster comps, flat ride comps, and much more have displays and booths where park owners and the GP can see what they would like to inquire about. There is also the "Magical Midway" where comps set up rides for attendees to enjoy.

GP I guess is a term for general public. That is a loose term, but while it is open to the public, after paying a $75 fee for entry, it is not a free for all. Business has to be conducted, and the vendors are serious at times.

The buyers have the open line to talk to the vendors, and plenty of people on the rides actually are gathering input. But, its also a great chance to get a sneak peak into the 2004 season.
