IAAPA Announces Winners for Brass Ring Best Exhibit Awards for IAAPA Expo Asia 2023
Winners for the IAAPA Brass Ring Best Exhibit Awards at IAAPA Expo Asia 2023 were announced on the second day the trade show floor was open. The tradition of the brass ring, a term now synonymous with spectacular achievement, dates to the 1800s when rings were hung on carousels to pose a fun challenge for riders. Successfully grabbing a ring while riding the carousel often earned the rider a prize, often including an additional free ride. Most rings were made of iron, but a few were made of brass, so grabbing the brass ring was a coveted and celebrated treat.
The IAAPA Brass Ring Awards honor this tradition by celebrating achievements of excellence throughout the global attractions industry. These are considered one of the industry’s most prestigious honors. Applicants were judged on their booth design, branding, staffing, product in booth, and overall appeal.
