Amusement Expo Europe 2009, which was held in Genoa, Italy, on October 28-30, was visited by over 3,000 theme park and entertainment venue operators from 37 countries.

"The work performed by Fiera di Genova against the background of the current economic scenario… has allowed us to achieve the results we expected on the eve of the show," said Roberto Urbani, who heads up the AEE events team.

54 operators took part in the initiative promoted by the Italian Institute for Foreign Trade, the Italian Ministry for Economic Development, and Liguria Regional Council.

Participating buyers included representatives from Egypt, India, Turkey, Greece, Spain, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, India, Saudi Arabia, the Arabian Emirates, Qatar, and Jordan.
