AMOA EXPO & FUN EXPO ATTENDANCE UP; EXHIBIT SPACE DOWN SLIGHTLY

 

LAS VEGAS - The sixth annual co-located AMOA International Expo and Fun Expo (Sept. 30 to Oct. 2) attracted combined attendance of 6,746 for the first

two days. The total headcount may climb significantly once organizers tally

up unusually strong third-day attendance totals. There were 304 exhibitors

in 745 booths, the second year in a row that floor space sales for the

combined shows dropped, albeit by less than 5%. By virtually unanimous agreement, Expo '04

offered a strong selection of new product in many categories for street

locations and fun centers alike. Brisk sales were reported by many

exhibitors.
