The 45th edition of the sector´s most important autumn appointment ended today

.Rome, 19th October 2017 . ENADA Rome turns off the lights at an edition which, in spite of the difficulties involving the sector, confirmed its central role for the business of the entire sector. A sector that looks to the future and continues to propose ideas and solutions.
In fact, the 45th edition of SAPAR´s International Amusement and Gaming Show, organized by Italian Exhibition Group in Rome trade fair centre, offered a fundamental opportunity for discussions and relaunching.
Confirming the days of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as the winning choice as far as calendar slot was concerned, the expo chalked up a more then positive outcome, increasing the good 2016 feedback.

Raffaele Curcio, chairman of the national SAPAR association, states, ´ENADA Rome positively surprised us once again this year, for the quantity of visitors attending and the feedback exhibitors had at business level.´ SAPAR once again showed and emphasized its commitment to safeguarding a sector, that of the management firms, oppressed by an increasingly discriminant and unfair policy. But above all the association, along with the IEG staff, us undertaking a series of projects on the amusement sector aimed at creating the necessary requirements to kick-start the pure amusement sector; we hope that right from the next edition of ENADA Spring the re-launch of pure amusement can be completely achieved.´

Lorenzo Cagnoni, president of Italian Exhibition Group stresses, ´The more than positive results of these days´ work for exhibitors and trade visitors confirm that the value of ENADA, the attention paid to innovations and the organization were once again appreciated by the sectors players. As far as we are concerned, as expo organizers, we continue to closely follow the sector´s new trends, to provide trade member that most useful means for facing future challenges: this is the interpretation that should be given to the Rimini Amusement Show´ project.´

This year, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony in Hall 1 at Fiera di Roma, participants included the Rt. Hon. Marco Baldassarre (Gruppo Misto) who stated: ´A lot can be done for this sector. We hope that the next governments are able to correct the errors of assessment that have been made up until now regarding a sector that creates wealth and employment for the country.´
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was followed by the SAPAR conference on the topic ´What impact will the stability law have on the gaming sector?´.
The expo had an even higher profile, thanks to the Euromat Executive Meeting, on Wednesday 18th October: an important international event for the entire sector.
But great interest was aroused in particular by the Rimini Amusement Show project, the new event by Italian Exhibition Group dedicated to the amusement world: a sector that is going through a period of profound changes. Scheduled to be held from 14th to 16th March 2018, simultaneously with ENADA Spring, the new event intends above all targeting new forms of pure amusement (such as e-sports and Virtual Reality); examining their potential in the near future by means of exhibitions, conferences, events and dedicated expo areas; attracting new Italian and foreign clients; highlighting the ´fun´ and socialization aspects of amusement.
The expo will feature three important focuses: the ´Academy´ sections, with training and updating meetings for trade members, ´Next´, an area presenting innovations and new trends, and ´Contest´, with competitions and tournaments with pure amusement games, old and new.
The layout will offer the 6,000 square metres of Hall C3 of Fiera di Rimini, dedicated to all types of amusement for all ages: from kiddie rides to theme park equipment, inflatables to virtual reality, e-sports to evergreen games such as table soccer and pinball machines, as well as educational games, and much more, to represent a very wide world that is continually evolving, as are the tastes of the public.

Once again this year, ENADA Rome had the support of Euromat and the collaboration of Ascob, Fidart and Anesv.

The next appointment with the gaming and amusement world is ENADA Spring, which will be held from March 14th to 16th 2018, at Rimini expo centre.
