“We have so much fun taking a day to celebrate our members each year,” said Lori Schneider, AMOA Executive Vice President. “Member Appreciation Day is an extra-special day dedicated to the amazing people belonging to AMOA.  These small business owners have helped us grow and thrive over the past 71 years, they inspire us every day, and their efforts and dedication will pave the way toward a better future for the industry.”

All members were automatically entered into random drawings.  One lucky member won a two-night stay at the Amusement Expo International 2020 host hotel, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside to be redeemed during the March 9-11 conference and trade show. This year AMOA also had an Emoji Quiz for even more chances to win.  The names were drawn over the course of the day and broadcast via AMOA’s Facebook page.

The day opened with a special message from Schneider, announcing an exclusive member discount off an On The Road registration with discount code – thanksforbeingawesome. On the Road is AMOA’s cost-effective educational program for leaders in the amusement industry who want to invest in themselves and their businesses by participating in an informative one and a half day educational event at an easily accessible venue.
