Neverland - February 2017

Argentina and Spain

Latin America’s Neverland has been a member of IAAPA since 1993, but recently decided to expand membership to all 31 of its locations. “We believe that to have sustainable development, to know the reality of other actors in the entertainment industry, and to carry out business in a professional manner, it is necessary to be at the forefront, always watching for news from other parks around the world,” says Luciana Periales, president and CEO of Neverland. “Being a member of IAAPA makes it possible for us to get together, acknowledge each other, share experiences, and project ourselves in a safer, stronger, and more efficient fashion.”
