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]

  FIRST HALF RETURNING WORKER SUPPLEMENTAL CAP MET:  USCIS announced on Friday that the first half returning worker supplemental cap was met on January 9th, the final receipt date for petitions requesting supplemental H-2B visas under the FY 2024 first half returning worker allocation. On or around March 6th appears to be the latest start date receipted.We initially projected early March to be the cutoff date. Given the recent data, we were hopeful it would remain open to allow mid-March start dates to get through but unfortunately, this was not the case. It is likely a higher percentage of the positions certified had corresponding returning workers than previous releases. If you were caught by the cap, there is still a pathway for you to get workers this year and maybe even your Returning Workers. You should work with your agent/attorney on the best strategy for your situation. SECOND HALF CAP RELIEF: DHS plans to release an additional 19,000 Returning Worker visas no ...   [read more]
