WEST PALM BEACH, FL — On the opening day of last month’s International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, Elaut Group USA announced a new partnership with coin machine factory TeamPlay Inc. Signaling the accord, two brand-new photobooth models were displayed prominently at the Elaut exhibit.

The new products, Pixel Pix DX and Pixel Pix STD photobooths, are the first of many new products that TeamPlay and Elaut will begin developing and marketing together. “Ed Pellegrini and Ken Fedesna are highly accomplished gamesmiths, and we look forward to representing their future offerings,” said Trevor Gianaris, president and chief executive of Elaut Group USA. “The interest in our new photobooth products was unbelievable.”

The Elaut Group also exhibited a “new” but proven product to the U.S. domestic market: the crane container, a mobile enclosure equipped with “E-Claw” cranes for easy transport from carnival to carnival, fair to fair, and anywhere else that the operator would like to take a mobile arcade.

“Crane containers have been a mainstay with the showman community throughout Europe for many years,” explained Eric Verstraeten, Elaut Group chief executive officer. “The very warm reception received at IAAPA is an early indicator that the U.S. carnival operators are ready for this product.”

Elaut will be sourcing U.S. suppliers for the container and/or trailers required to bring the Crane Container to market. The company expects to roll out the system in the second half of 2020.
