The United States is to have its first national pavilion at Theme Parks & Fun Centres 2003 (TPFC), the Middle East's only trade showcase for the rapidly developing amusement parks and attractions industry. The event will be held in Dubai this April.
The pavilion, for which 200 square metres of space has been reserved, is being jointly coordinated by International Expo Consultants (IEC), organisers of TPFC, and the US Department of Commerce.
"This show has proven to be a good venue for US exhibitors to showcase their products and services," said Donald L Hubar, programme manager, Trade Fair Certification Programme, Department of Commerce.
Next year's TPFC will be 30 per cent larger than the 2002 event, embracing 3,500 square metres at the Dubai International Convention Centre. It will be the first trade show held at the latest addition to Dubai's world class exhibition and convention facilities.
The show will also see the debut of a dedicated children's edutainment and entertainment arena. Another first at TPFC 2003 will be a water parks forum, supported by the World Water Parks Association.
