One of the exhibitors, Empex Watertoys from Canada, a specialist in interactive spray features has forecasted expansive growth for fun centres and theme parks and plans to launch its products in the Middle East by participating for the first time in this trade show.

Wyeth Tracy, president of Empex, said: "Region wide we see a major increase in the trend for hotels and resorts to incorporate water playgrounds in their facilities. With the construction activity in this sector that is taking place in the UAE and Saudi Arabia we see TPFC 2004 as an important opportunity for us in this market."

Nigel Brown, chief executive of UK's AI Group, believes that this year the show will be more successful than the previous year.
