It seems these days you can’t go anywhere without finding some form of food available for purchase as part of the experience. From movie theaters to convenience stores, more and more locations are adding prepared foods to their line up and the attractions industry is no different.

Who attends the IAAPA Attractions Expo?
This show is perfect for any type of attraction or experiential type of business looking to learn more about their industry, see the next in innovative products and network with the right people. The most common categories of attendees include amusement and theme parks, hotels and resorts, water parks and resorts, casinos, family entertainment centers, concessionaires, zoos and aquariums, historic/tourist attractions, museums and science centers.
Why do we attend this show?
For MTI, the IAAPA Attractions Expo is a unique opportunity to connect with a plethora of potential foodservice innovators. There is almost no business that wouldn’t benefit from adding some sort of foodservice capabilities to their lineup and we’re happy to make that transition an easy one. It should be no surprise that fried foods are a hit at most attractions, but many customers also like the versatility that our high speed oven offers. Between our two cooking applications, you can truly outfit your business to be fully equipped to serve a full or limited menu, depending on the needs of your customers.
Where can I find you?
We’ll be exhibiting in the Food and Beverage section of the show at Booth 844. Stop by for a free product demo, food tastings and more! For your convenience, you can find a map of the event here. We're also part of the 2016 Food and Beverage Vendor Tour, be sure to sign up for that early as space is limited.
Will we see you at the IAAPA Attractions Expo?
