Fall is upon us, which means it's time to grab your passport and join JRA for the next leg of our conference world tour! This season, "the business of fun" begins at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions' Euro Attractions Show (EAS) in Berlin, Germany. Here are six reasons why you should book your ticket:

1. Experience One of Europe's Most Dynamic Cities: From its historical sites to its dazzling modern facades, Berlin is a study in contrasts. Packed with museums, parks, restaurants and shopping, Berlin serves as the perfect host for a cultural and entertainment attractions show. 

2. Exercise Your Legs Walking the Show Floor: Considered the largest attractions industry trade show in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, EAS will welcome over 11,000 industry professionals from 119 countries. From museum designers to theme park operators, resort hotels to cruise lines, over 500 exhibitors will fill the six expo halls and 13,225 square meters of exhibit space over three days. 

3. Exercise Your Brain in the Education Sessions: But the Euro Attractions Show is more than just companies showcasing their wares - an integral component to the EAS experience is education. In addition to its perennially popular day-long programs, such as the Safety Institute, IAAPA Institute for Attractions Managers, Water Park Forum, and FEC/Small Parks/Playgrounds Day, this year's show features over 20 education sessions covering a variety of tracks, including digitilization and immersive experiences. 

4. Discover How Berlin's Top Attractions Operate: A variety of EduTours take learning experiences outside the convention center to such sites as Karls Erlebnis Park, the Berlin Zoo and Tropical Islands. Coupled with the Expo sessions, these tours show how many of attraction operations theories are put into practice.

5. Network, Network, Network: It wouldn't be an IAAPA Expo without networking events! An Opening Ceremony, Opening Reception, two lunch-and-learns and other events offer ample opportunities to mix, mingle, and connect.

6. To Visit JRA at Booth 20-707!

"I always look forward to EAS," said Dan Schultz, JRA COO.  "Professionally, it is an extremely important exhibition for JRA, both for seeking new opportunities and gathering qualified resources for our projects. Personally, I enjoy being in the midst of so many companies and individuals that are from the region that have such long, outstanding years of service within our industry."
