It’s the largest gathering of the leisure, tourism and entertainment industry in Europe, and this year it’s set to be bigger than ever. For the third time, the Euro Attractions Show (EAS) returns to the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, with the show expanding so rapidly that the organisers have added an extra exhibition hall. The trade show floor will cover more than 14,000sqm over five halls to accommodate the ever-growing interest from exhibitors and attendees alike.
More than 12,000 leisure and attractions industry professionals – including 8,000 influential buyers – from more than 100 countries will descend on Amsterdam for EAS 2018, to network, discover the latest trends, and explore the newest innovative technologies to the market, with more than 500 exhibiting companies.
Taking place 25 to 27 September, EAS 2018 boasts the most extensive conference programme yet, with a broad selection of seminars over the course of the three days. Want to learn how to better cater to guests with special needs? Or how to incorporate food trends from around the world into your F&B offer? How to run a more sustainable operation? Or how to reinvent your tired marketing campaigns? All of these topics and many more will be addressed by the best in the industry sharing their expertise and experience.
Furthermore, the 2018 edition of the Leadership Breakfast, Waterpark Forum, Young Professionals Forum, and Lunch and Learn will be taking place, along with the flagship CEO Talks, which will be focusing on the Dutch leisure industry.

EAS offers unmissable occasions for expanding networks and connecting with colleagues from throughout the region and world. These connections can open the marketplace and information sharing can create opportunities to grow your business.
The EAS 2018 Opening Reception takes place at Strand Zuid, conveniently located next to the trade show halls. Following the show, attendees who have registered for the After-Show Tour will visit Toverland and Efteling, while this year’s behind-the-scenes eduTour takes place at Walibi Holland.
