This September’s Euro Attractions Show (EAS) in Amsterdam promises the largest exhibition space and most expansive conference programme in the event’s history. But don’t get complacent if you want to attend: earlybird registration closes at the end of this month.

Over 12,000 leisure, attractions, tourism and entertainment professionals are expected to attend the event at the Dutch capital’s RAI exhibition centre from September 23 to 27, including the main trade show that kicks off on the 25th. Those that sign up by July 31 will be able to benefit from a 25% saving.

Most of the week’s schedule has already been confirmed. In addition to more than 500 exhibitors and around 20 educational opportunities, highlights include:

• Opening Reception. A Tuesday evening (September 25) get-together at Strand Zuid, a city “beach” right behind the RAI.

Leadership Breakfast. Efteling park director Coen Bertens will address industry colleagues on Wednesday morning.

CEO Talk. This popular panel session on Wednesday afternoon will feature contributions from attractions industry leaders including Juliana Delaney (Continuum Group), Andreas Andersen (Liseberg), Ahmad Hussain (Dubai Parks & Resorts) and Michael Mack (Europa-Park).
