2024 Gibtown Trade Show Closes with Plenty of Sales from US & Foreign Ride Manufacturers

Luna Park, Kolmax, Equipment Solutions International, Rides 4-U, & Technical Park report orders from show

  As we observed in Part I of our 2024 Gibtown Trade Show wrap up, most manufacturers and suppliers had a very good year at the show. With so many options on hand, buyers were able to choose from a wide selection of attractions.What few criticisms were heard came from manufacturers who missed a few of the larger carnivals who were unable to attend the IISA's annual event, either because they didnt make it to Florida this year or they attended the OABA show the week prior, and were mostly companies that sold larger, more expensive equipment to a very select clientele.  Comments from the owner of Fabbri are one example as is Len Soled's plea for the group to come together in 2025.In the meantime, let's take a look at what was sold or being delivered in the coming year: Luna Park Luna Park Rides' Isabel Smith said the company had a ...   [read more]

H-2B Labor Relief Starts with the Carnivals Are Real Entertainment Act (CARE Act H.R. 1787)

Labor relief for the carnival industry begins with contacting your member of congress

  Labor shortage is the top challenge faced by the carnival and mobile entertainment industry.  For years, many carnivals and food concessionaires have relied on a mix of domestic workers and temporary foreign labor through the H-2B visa program.  Due to high demands for H-2B visas and an outdated cap, the last few years have been challenging for those in the industry to obtain workers on time, or, at all, making it extremely difficult for carnivals to plan for their upcoming season.  The Outdoor Amusement Business Association and other H-2B advocacy groups have proposed a solution to the problem called the Carnivals Are Real Entertainment Act, otherwise known as the CARE Act (H.R. 1787).   Summary of the CARE Act The Carnivals are Real Entertainment Act – or the CARE Act – helps this unique and threatened industry address the labor shortage issue by correcting and clarifying existing laws that currently exclude mobile entertainment employers ...   [read more]
