IAAPA Europe, Middle East, and Africa

To better serve our members in Europe, Middle East and Africa, IAAPA has opened up an office in Brussels, Belgium. With this initiative IAAPA is committed to creating a full service association in the region, offering monitoring, advising, lobbying and public relations-services as well as latest knowledge & education on ride safety, industry data and best practices amongst members. On top of this IAAPA organizes the Euro Attractions Show – the premier industry trade show in Europe.

In Europe, the association is guided by the European Advisory Committee and four subcommittees including Education, Government Relations, Manufacturers & Suppliers, and Safety. Together with the Advisory Committee, they discuss, support, and guide the work of IAAPA. They are comprised of volunteers from IAAPA member companies from all across Europe.

Since 2015 the IAAPA Europe office also represents the Middle-East and Africa markets resulting in a name change IAAPA EMEA.
