Apple Industries, honored as the United States amusement industry’s 2016 Manufacturer of the Year, welcomed a nonstop flood of customer traffic to its exhibit booth at this year’s Amusement Expo International in Dallas, Texas.
Both street operators and family entertainment center owners were excited to see world-premiere new models of Face Place Photo Booths, along with first-time trade show displays of recent upgrades and additions to cabinet graphics, digital photo content and networking technology across the product line.
“The overwhelming success of our IAAPA award-winning Photo Studio Deluxe has made strong believers out of the nation’s leading FEC chains,” said Apple CEO Allen Weisberg. “Weeks before Amusement Expo, executives of each major family entertainment center empire called to set formal appointments with us at the show. All week long at Dallas, we held very exciting meetings, featuring discussions about how FECs can make Face Place Photo Booths a key part of their equipment mix.”
“Street operators also kept our expo booth crowded every hour,” said Apple COO Scott Avery. “Our message is clearly getting across that Face Place models such as Sapphire and Ruby were specifically designed for street locations from the ground up — and they have now been freshly updated for even stronger appeal in bars and taverns.”
Amusement Expo 2017 also saw the world premiere of The Movie Photo Booth, Apple’s newest addition to its growing line of Face Place Photo Booths.
Winning AAMA’s Manufacturer of the Year award made Expo 2017 an even more powerful highlight for Apple. Apple was chosen for the award based on individual rankings by AAMA members in categories including Success of Product, Product Quality and Customer Service Support.
