EAS Berlin 2017 is over, next stop is Amsterdam. There’s plenty of work to do in the meantime, but we will see you there.

So let’s review our week in Berlin.

The show was superb. For us, the busiest stand we have had for a few years and lots of interest in our range of rides and products for the theme park and attractions industry. There are appointments in the diary that will keep us busy for a good few weeks and the future feels very, very positive.


2 Berlin Literally Rolled Out The Red Carpet For Us 800x600 1

Berlin, literally rolled out the red carpet for us


The city of Berlin itself is stunning and huge. We took the opportunity to have a good look around, so we could share a few images from the city. There are parts of it which are obviously still pretty gritty from its days under Soviet control, but the parks, squares and open spaces elevate it to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, if not the world. There are plenty of hipsters with beards to die for and even more graffiti, but the latter has been elevated to an art form, rather than any sort of vandalism.

But what Berlin does well is acknowledge its troubled past. Rather than hide from it, it has brought it to the fore as a reminder to the next generation about the decisions and mistakes of their forefathers. And there are parts of the city that will reduce you to tears if you look at the story behind the memorials, scattered throughout the city. The tiny brass memorials outside the houses where Jews were taken away to concentration camps, give you a glimpse of the story behind the stones and the Holocaust Memorial will take your breath away with its simple brutal beauty.
