In an effort to promote the industry on a domestic level, the Industry Promotion Committee works hard to seek out new programs which enable our members to expose their product(s) to the general public and to potential customers.
One of AAMA’s biggest member benefit programs is the Location Trade Show Program.
How does the Location Trade Show Program work?
The AAMA purchases a pavilion of several booths at shows such as Bowl Expo, RSA Convention and Trade Show, and IAAPA. We then sell space within those pavilions to AAMA members. Member companies receive a prime location on the trade show floor within the AAMA pavilion. Not only does the AAMA pavilion make a bigger impact than a company exhibiting on its own; the AAMA receives great locations within the show itself.
By actively participating in different trade shows, the AAMA insures the exposure for coin-operated amusement equipment to a variety of industries where coin-op may be used to generate increased location income.
Industry Promotion efforts also include the creation of up-to-date sales tools such as videos and brochures as well as our newly revamped website. The AAMA publishes its Membership Directory, where each member is entitled to a FREE listing. What makes the AAMA Directory unique is the fact that we actively utilize it as a marketing piece, distributing it at Location Trade Shows, as well as offering it on our website. Members interested in advertising in the Directory to get their company in front of thousands of prospective buyers should contact Tina Schwartz at AAMA headquarters.
The Industry Promotion Committee does a wonderful job insuring that the Association portrays a positive image for the coin-op industry.
