IAAPA Europe Launches Insurance Programme

Brussels, Belgium – IAAPA Europe and Jardine Lloyd Thompson Leisure (JLT) announced this week a strategic partnership, launching a new, exclusive IAAPA membership programme; the IAAPA Europe Insurance Programme.

Within this programme, IAAPA’s European members – attractions and manufacturers and suppliers to the attractions industry – are offered risk management products and services and insurance products. The focus of the programme is to offer;

  • insurance products with enhanced coverage and reasonable prices
  • policy stability
  • specialized risk management services

JLT is one of the largest providers of insurance and risk management services in Europe and is recognised as a market leader in the leisure sector. JLT manages coverage for hundreds of theme parks, visitor attractions, waterparks, zoos, and other leisure facilities across Europe.

With a specialised division dedicated to providing insurance programmes and risk transfer solutions directly to the leisure industry, the IAAPA Europe Insurance Programme specifically provides European members of IAAPA access to a substantial, stable, and consistent insurance market that is committed to and fully understands the risk and insurance requirements of the attractions industry. 

It also enables the collective purchasing strength of the IAAPA membership to be maximised for the benefit of each individual member in the negotiation and arrangement of cost-effective insurance programmes.

"With a clear understanding of safety and required risk management procedures within the attractions industry, JLT is able to help IAAPA members maximise their coverage based on minimum premium costs,” said Andreas Veilstrup Andersen, executive director of IAAPA Europe, “We are very excited about providing IAAPA members access to the substantial attractions-based risk management knowledge and expertise JLT offers. This is an added benefit to our members – and to the industry as a whole,” he added.
