We have three interviews to round out the week with. First up is accesso, a Lake Mary-based digital queuing and ticketing company famous for its Qbot. accesso has a brand new smart wearable, known as Prism, that will likely be seen in theme parks across the country in the coming years.
Then we have the Founder and Co-CEO of The Producers Group talk about their new dinner theater concept and why it might be successful when others are struggling.
And our very last interview of #IAE16 is with the VP of Sales at laser tag company Delta Strike. We’ll see our first local Delta Strike laser tag arena open next year as part of the Andretti Orlando entertainment center.
On Day 2 of the #IAE16 we hit up press conferences for Andretti Karting, CAVU, Dynamic Attractions, Cloud Coaster and more. Plus Ken and Jim talk about DOF Hurricane VR simulator, the VR Coaster at Fun Spot, who is actually buying all these ziplines and the Brass Ring 2016 Awards.
