Patricia Madrid detailed, through a statement, that the term of the award (Brass Ring), comes from the tradition of the Bronze Ring dating from the 19th century and today is synonymous of a spectacular achievement.
This tradition consisted of having rings suspended above a carousel, low enough that they could be fastened and as high as to be a challenge.
Most of the rings were made of iron, however, a few were made of bronze, so holding some of the bronze was considered a valuable gift.
The IAAPA Brass Ring Awards are equally prestigious, marking achievements of excellence throughout the global attractions industry.
