At this year’s IAAPA the Home Office staff was joined by dozens of Space Walk Partners from around the country. Over the week we met for drinks, donuts, dinner, and discussion. And, of course, the IAAPA Convention, where we met with our top suppliers, and saw the latest innovations in the inflatable and entertainment rental industry.
Check out some of our favorite photos from IAAPA below!

Our dinner this year was hosted at Lafayette’s, a New Orleans-themed restaurant.
Space Walk of Orlando provided many fun games to entertain children (of all ages).
All attendees were serenaded with tender acoustic covers of classic pop songs. Mostly Beatles songs.
Lafayette’s setup a buffet style meal, with many Cajun-style dishes.
