Southern Europe’s leading international trade show, Enada Spring 2016, ran concurrently with our own Amusement Expo International, beginning on March 16 and ending March 18 in Rimini, Italy. Over 25,000 visitors came to the show, demonstrating what organizers say is an increasing popularity in the industry.
Enada featured a host of new products, including the newly arrived and eagerly awaited Moto GP driver by Raw Thrills (the Moto GP franchise enjoys more popularity in Europe than the States). ICE brought several ticket redemption games, including their Angry Birds game and Ghostbusters.
