IAAPA 2014, Totally Banana’s and more…..

International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions
Orlando, Florida, USA

Totally Banana’s and more…..

Just returned from theIMG_0016 IAAPA convention, in Orlando, Florida, what a great gathering of ideas, new products, great friends, and lots of fun rides. Amusement Park operators like Cedar Point, Sea World, Disney, and other fun parks from all over the world gather in Orlando to see what is new for next year.

This is an International convention I meet folks from China, Russia, South Africa, and Europe. As well as all across North and South America.  Every year product vendors come to Orlando to show their goods to the attending members of IAAPA. This year I had the pleasure to work with several of my C Nelson Mfg. Company, customers who use our carts to merchandize their products; ice cream, Italian ice, and frozen chocolate covered bananas. I love chocolate covered bananas they are a great tasting healthy treat.

Totally Bananas was one of the many vendors showing their products; my good friends Chuck Peterson aiaapatotallybananasnd Joel Kornbluth were working their booth. Chuck uses a C Nelson BDC8 cart to market his frozen bananas.  If you have a need for a great tasting treat contact my friends at Totally Bananas!

Next update will be about my friends at the Scara’s Italian Ice booth here at IAAPA.
