Australians At IAAPA
November 9, 2009

A number of events have been arranged for Australians visiting next weekâs International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Convention in Las Vegas.

Opening Reception - at the Renaissance Hotel at 6pm on Tuesday 17th November. As Greg O'Neill, IAAPA's Australia/New Zealand representative explains "this is a ticketed event, but at only US$25 it is really good value.

"At this point we have over 100 Australians booked for this reception."

Aussie Drinks - at the Las Vegas Hilton from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Wednesday 18th November. All Australians are welcome with Australian Amusement, Leisure and Recreation Association (AALARA) members and IAAPA Australian memberships receiving three free drink vouchers at this event.

LAX Party - at the LAX nightclub at the Luxor Hotel from 7pm to 10pm on Thursday night, O'Neill says "don't miss the hottest, most heart-pounding, must-attend networking and social event of the year as IAAPA takes over."

Harley Ride - on the morning of Saturday 21st November travelling to the Grand Canyon.

Greg O'Neill urges Australians at IAAPA to book early for these events and activities.
