AIR Selected as IAAPA’s New Preferred Family Entertainment Center Insurance Program Provider

 
Insurance Benefit Available Exclusively to IAAPA Members

(March 24, 2014) – The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attraction, (IAAPA), in conjunction with the IAAPA Family Entertainment Center (FEC) Committee, selected Amusement Insurance Resources (AIR), a division of the insurance brokerage firm Britton Gallagher, as its new preferred FEC insurance program provider. The IAAPA-endorsed insurance program, AIR Elite, is managed by AIR and exclusively available to IAAPA North American FEC members. The program is designed to enhance safety within the FEC industry and provide reasonable insurance premiums for IAAPA members. IAAPA has offered a similar group liability program to its FEC members since 2007.

In 2013, IAAPA issued a request for proposal for a group liability insurance program provider. The IAAPA FEC Committee reviewed the submissions and interviewed prospective partners before choosing AIR. The partnership provides IAAPA North American FEC members access to insurance coverage, risk management assistance, consultative services, and safety education, including exclusive access to an online educational portal complete with training modules.

“With our carrier partner, Specialty Insurance Group, we are able to bring more than 100 years of successful amusement and entertainment insurance program experience to IAAPA members,” Drew Tewksbury, senior vice president of Britton Gallagher’s Amusement Division, stated. “This insurance program offers a powerful combination of quality insurance, competitive pricing, and valuable risk management tools.”

“We are pleased to begin a new partnership with Amusement Insurance Resource,” said IAAPA FEC Committee Chair Gregg Borman. “AIR Elite provides IAAPA’s FEC members with affordable, comprehensive insurance coverage and additional educational and consultative services.”
