2011 Euro Attractions Show Recap

The Euro Attractions Show just wrapped up in London, sort of a smaller version of the large IAAPA Attractions Expo that is held in November in Orlando.  In recent years more and more manufacturers are showing at the European trade event as a lead in to the larger American version, which means more photos, models, and industry goodies for us to take in.

In fact, this year's EAS had the largest number of exhibitors ever, and over 7,000 attendees.

While I haven't seen any shocking news come out of the show this year, there is a nice photo review with some juicy tidbits posted on CoasterForce.  It's worth a read, especially if you are interested in some rumors and news for European parks (details on Alton Towers' plans for next year, anyone?).

The general consensus seems to be that some business was done at the event, which is great for both suppliers and the parks - oh, and us, too!
