|IAFE - Networking and Fun for Everyone!|
|Monday, 16 January 2012|
"We bring joy to peoples lives!" That insightful yet simple quote is from Doug Lofstrom, Vice-President for the Orange County Fair & Event Center during the workshop Guest Hospitality Experience Programs, co-hosted with Jim Laurendeau, Director of Programming at the Calgary Stampede, a leader in guest hospitality. This was but one of the many educational workshops available to the attendees. North American Midway Entertainment took the opportunity to attend a few of these to learn what, when, and how we can make the industry better, safer, and maybe even, more fun! The amusement industry is unique in that it loves to share its secrets with others in the same field. Our goal is the same – making our guests happy.
North American Midway Entertainment is a proud sponsor of the IAFE and this year sponsored the Competitive Exhibits Award, which was presented by Jeff Blomsness, Co-CEO. Jeff, in association with the OABA, was the presenter for the Keynote Speaker, Joel Manby, during the Wednesday General Session. Manby, CEO of Herschend Family Entertainment is a motivational speaker and was featured on the CBS television show, "Undercover Boss."
Congratulations to all of our Fairs and to the contest winners…The Big E, Kansas State Fair, Walworth County Fair, Dubuque County Fair, Kentucky State Fair, Westerner Days Fair and Exposition, Indiana State Fair and the South Carolina State Fair. Top notch!
