The IAAPA Institute for Attractions Professionals (IAP) is a hybrid program that uses adult learning methodologies.

Course Agenda:

  • 2 full days of in-person learning
  • Complimentary registration for a special event on Monday 23 September
  • 3-month access to curated coursework

Participants should be highly motivated learners with an interest in cross-departmental industry functions. Participants will gain a global attractions perspective, learn more about all areas of operation, and will share best practices across member types. The intensive two-day in-person program is designed with a blend of classroom instruction led by industry experts and small group activities. Participants will dive deeper into topics during their 3-month access to self-paced online coursework specially curated for IAP. By combining in-person and online learning, participants will gain a solid understanding of the key disciplines and processes required to manage a successful attraction.

  • Identify industry trends
  • Identify challenges and opportunities for different entertainment show types
  • Explore best practices to predict, meet, and exceed guests’ expectations
