IAAPA Asia Pacific
Health and Safety is Our Top Priority
IAAPA is focused on providing a safe and healthy environment for attendees, exhibitors, and our team at IAAPA Expos. IAAPA is working closely with our partners at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Barcelona Gran Via, and Orange County Convention Center, as well as the respective local health departments to develop and implement a comprehensive plan focused on safe and successful IAAPA Expos 2021. IAAPA is also following the latest guidance and recommendations for large groups and meetings from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization. The health and safety plans will be available here in the upcoming months. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].
COVID-19 Support for Members in the Asia-Pacific Region
For the past year, IAAPA has been working to support members around the world through the COVID-19 pandemic. Guest and employee safety has always been our industry’s top priority, and IAAPA continues to provide resources, guidance and connections to members around the world.
IAAPA's thorough resource, “COVID-19 Reopening Guidance: Considerations for the Global Attractions Industry” is available in both English and Spanish. IAAPA continues to share it with local and regional governments and public authorities tasked with reopening their communities to help communicate the work the industry is doing to ensure safe operations for guests and employees. The guidelines have also been referenced by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in their Global Guidelines to Restart Tourism, and the World Tourism and Travel Council (WTTC) in their Attractions: Global Protocols for the New Normal resource.
We encourage members to download, use and share this document as they prepare to reopen in 2021.
For additional resources and support, IAAPA members can access the exclusive COVID-19 resource center for timely information, contacts, updates and data, as well as current advocacy efforts.
