AMOA Show Exhibitors' Information 2007
In 2001 the Innovator Awards Program was created to acknowledge those member firms whose new offerings at the annual Amusement Expo International demonstrate, in the opinion of the judges panel, the true meaning of the word, 'innovation,' as applied to the coin-operated entertainment industry.

AMOA, originally known simply as MOA -- The Music Operators of America was born January 21, 1948, when 68 jukebox owners from around the US banded together to fight the repeal of the jukebox royalty exemption. This modest beginning, created by a common cause, revealed a fierce passion shared by many about their business. By harnessing the collective strength, energy, knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit of a growing number of volunteer members, AMOA quickly established itself as a major force within the trade. Now, more than 69 years later, these same characteristics are tapped daily to offer an ever-expanding array of programs and services to members and the entire industry.

There was a very positive energy in the South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the three days of the show. With more than 500 booths and 165 exhibitors as part of the 2006 AMOA Expo, the attendees were able to walk the floor and view many new and exciting products.
Sponsorships of the Golf Outing and Cocktail Party along with the exhibitor advertising indicated strong support by the exhibitors.
Twenty-one companies with 29 entries were involved in the Innovator Award Programs. Winners of the 2006 event were Global VR, Pyramid Technologies and TouchTunes Music Corp.
The Fourth Annual Coin-Op Cares Golf Classic was held on Tuesday, September 26th at the Angel Park Golf Club, and it attracted 105 golfers.

The event generated more than $1,400 in registration fees, with a portion of the proceeds going to the AMOA Coin-Op Cares Foundation.
Jack Kelleher, AMOA Executive Vice President said...
"By a considerable margin, it exceeded my expectations, and I think those of many, many others," said Jack Kelleher, AMOA Executive Vice President. "If I had to pick one word that defined this year's Expo, it would be 'festive.' From my observations, showgoers seemed to be having fun at Expo this year. I can't pinpoint why, but seeing 'smiles in the aisles' was to me, a good sign."
