IAAPA has assembled resources to help aid its members affected by and during the outbreak of the coronavirus. Carefully monitoring the situation around the world, IAAPA has made the following resources available for members.
IAAPA Asia Pacific Information Exchange Group
IAAPA has coordinated an information exchange group of attractions industry professionals based in the Asia-Pacific region. This group will be available for IAAPA members to connect with if they are in need of support due to the outbreak.
IAAPA members and facilities will be able to discuss a range of issues with members of this group. For example, communication with guests, operational protocols, prior epidemic communications used in the past and more. When contacting the group by email, members must include their IAAPA member ID and company name.
