AAA 2022 Shone Spotlights on Hot Springs & Digital Sports
Being the two fastest growing segments in today’s tourism market, hot springs and digital sports deserve more attention. Not only were two dedicated show areas set aside for them, but corresponding forums were also staged to ignite new ideas!
Families & Elders’ Growing Interest in Hot Springs
Under the lead of local associations, premium brands from China’s well-known hot spring provinces and cities like Jiangxi, Hunan, Guangdong, Chongqing and etc., have joined as exhibitors to together promote hot spring culture.
“Even amid the pandemic, China’s hot spring tourism in 2020 recorded a gross revenue of 105.95bn yuan with retirees’ visits to hot spring destinations notably increased,” as explained by Prof. Li Peng, director of China Hot Spring Sustainable Development Research Institute.
His opinions were shared by many exhibitors, like Green Spa Group, Grand Metropark Resort, Tianmu Group, Narada Resort & Hotel, Fuquan Art Spring, and etc. agreeing that more efforts should be channeled into hot spring products for families and elders.
Digital Techs Reshaping the Future of Sports Industry
By fusing traditional sports with newborn technologies, our exhibitors like Gooest, Zhilong, Liangjia, Fenzhong, and etc. haven taken the initiative to make sports accessible to more citizens and provide people with a more scientific approach to fitness.
“Digital transformation is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for sports industry to boost their revenue,” said Gooest, the leading digital interactive technology provider. “From basketball, tennis, badminton, soccer, to archery, curling, handball, rock climbing, and etc., we have so far developed 18 popular digital sports products.”
AAA 2022 Shone Spotlights on Hot Springs & Digital Sports
A well-designed transport system that provides both practicality and enjoyment can become a significant attraction on its own. Instead of tandem bikes and golf carts, our exhibitors have offered some very intriguing transportation options.
Riding an Epic Glass Water Slide Down the Mountain
Combining the exciting elements of roller coasters and water parks, this special ride by Chengtao Special Equipment allows visitors to enjoy the breathtaking scenery around while having some exhilarating rafting fun.
“Our longest glass water slide is built in Hangzhou, stretching 700m in total, with a height difference of 65m,” introduced Chengtao. “Its sides and bottom are made of multiple-layer laminated tempered glass, giving it high durability and impact toughness.”
Enjoying Spectacular Views On a Modern Elevated Train
Providing safe, comfortable, quiet and steady train ride experience, the single-rail elevated sightseeing train by CRRC Special Equipment can not only run above lakes and rivers, but also through forests and mountains.
“Covering a total distance of 11.5km, the elevated train we built in Guizhou runs through 22 natural attractions in Xishui County,” CRRC proudly introduced. “The train operates on electricity only, and is China’s first elevated sightseeing train that reaches the speed of 40km/h.”
Thousands of New Products Came to the Stage
Offering both extensive media exposure and access to target clients, AAA is the ideal platform for new product launch. This year, over 1000 new products arrived at the show floor, many of which were bought by visitors on the spot.
8 years after Sega released their popular music game Chunithm, the second-generation product Chunithm New!! was finally out last year, and was meeting its Chinese fans for the first time on the show floor of AAA this August.
As the game’s exclusive agent in China, Wahlap held a grand product launch on site, whose live-stream notched up over 2.44 million views. “We are very confident that Chunithm New!! will be a second big hit in the Chinese market, following MaiMai DX,” enthused Wahlap.
Actively embracing the digitalization trend, Jinma has rolled out one after another successful immersive ride in the past few years. Their latest invention is the 360 Roller, which is undoubtedly another delightful surprise to the industry.
“By rotating to correspond to actions on screen, the 360 Roller can vividly simulate experiences like sharp turns, instantaneous weightlessness, rotational falls, and etc.” said Jinma. “To add more interactivity, players will be engaged in a shooting battle against virtual enemies in the story. ”
Duojinbao SaaS System
Specially designed for claw machine operators, Duojinbao SaaS System by Leyaoyao is not only a powerful tool to improve efficiency, but also help drive revenue growth.
“The biggest highlight of this new system is that it allows players to trade prizes they don’t want for points, which can be saved up to redeem prizes of higher value,” said Leyaoyao “By building stronger playability, it can significantly increase your player retention rate and engagement.”
