For several years IAAPA has worked with The World Customs Organization to adjust the import and export code for attractions equipment. The new codes will allow us to track the market for equipment and will clearly define the equipment as capital goods. During this webinar, we will review the new codes and how they will be applied. We will also review other relevant import and export codes for other segments including go-carts and arcade games. 

Participants of this webinar will: 

  • Understand why these code changes are important 
  • Learn how these codes changes impact them

A question and answer session will follow the webinar.
