International Mascot Corporation Takes on Orlando at the 2023 IAAPA Expo

Have you ever wondered what’s new in the world of attractions and play? At International Mascot Corporation (IMC), our work revolves around being in the know about all things amusement and fun, and with that comes the opportunity to network and join in at international conferences. This year, our Atlanta team joined the roster for the IAAPA Expo 2023 in November.

From November 13 – 17, 2023, the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, was transformed by new rides, character branding, and technology reveals. The IAAPA Expo 2023 had the highest recorded attendance yet, with over 36,173 attraction professionals present. The goal of the event is to showcase the global attractions industry. From educational sessions to networking events, industry leaders are invited to share their experiences and insights to elevate our customer experiences.

Our IMC Atlanta team worked hard on the show floor alongside Macchiato and Nemo, two of our most popular characters brought to life in 2023. We know firsthand that mascots make your marketing stand out as they bring your brand to life. 

What do you want to be known for? Mascots can be found everywhere, including at:

  • Birthday parties
  • Amusement parks
  • Grand Openings
  • Sports games
  • Community events
  • Rides
  • Concerts
  • Fundraisers
  • Schools
  • And More!

A mascot is more universal than we give it credit for. At the IAAPA Expo 2023, we were honoured to meet with other industry professionals, make connections, and find ways that we can support their marketing efforts with a new mascot. Participating in conferences like this is instrumental in continuing to bring joy to audiences worldwide through international partnerships.
