RCI boost 2018 presence with trade show appearances
As a result of emerging demand for more physically interactive adventures, Ropes Courses Inc has spent much of 2018 expanding its global presence and sales via a number of trade shows and exhibitions.
RCI’s line-up of products includes the Sky Trail and Sky Rail aerial attractions, Clip ‘n Climb vertical climbing walls, Sky Tykes, and their most recent acquisition Amaze’n Mazes human labyrinths.
During 2018, RCI staff attended three shows outside of North America including the Asian Attractions Expo (AAE) in Hong Kong, the Dubai Entertainment Amusement and Leisure show (DEAL) in Dubai and the Euro Attractions Show (EAS) in Amsterdam. Next up, RCI will also attend the Attractions, Leisure & Tourism Middle East Forum in Dubai, UAE in mid-October. Participating in these leisure and tourism focused trade shows has allowed RCI to strengthen its global presence and increase international awareness of their wide range of family entertainment products.
“In talking to everyone at EAS, tourism increases have encouraged parks and resorts in many countries to purchase diverse new attractions for their guests. Our products are meeting the demand we’re seeing in the industry by providing quality, fun experiences for participants as well as delivering a high return on investment for operating businesses.”
– Jon Weston, vice president of sales & marketing at RCI
To further strengthen their appeal to international attraction operators, RCI works directly with distributors in different geographical areas to facilitate local sales and installations and to provide local and regional support throughout the design, installation, and opening phase of all new attractions.
“Part of our commitment and guarantee to each client is that every attraction is quality tested and certified to meet or exceed local government regulations,” assured Weston. “Our reputation for high standards in quality and safety during the past 30 years reassures clients in any destination that they will have a hassle-free and smooth opening for their new attraction,” he confirms.
The final event for RCI in 2018 is the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo in Orlando, Fla. in mid-November with an estimated 39,000 participants. Along with showcasing their signature attractions — Sky Trail, Sky Tykes, Sky Rail and Clip ‘n Climb – RCI will be celebrating their 30 years in business with the unveiling of a new brand identity.
RCI’s top customers include internationally acclaimed Carnival Cruise Lines, U.S.-based Great Wolf Lodge Resorts, Main Event & Entertainment, and Jordan’s Furniture, as well as U.K.’s Centre Parcs and many more.
