AALARA highlights reasons for Association membership
August 28, 2018

The Australian Amusement, Leisure and Recreation Association (AALARA) has highlighted the benefits of businesses and professionals in the amusement, attraction, leisure and recreation being members.

At a challenging time for the attractions industry in Australia, AALARA has a near 25 year track-record in representing the interest of ite members and the sector overall, with members benefitting from advice, knowledge, best-practice, representation, lobbying, resources, networking and marketing.

Founded in 1995, AALARA is a national (not-for-profit) industry member association representing operators and owners of amusements, animal and wildlife attractions, bowling alleys, carnival and mobile rides, family entertainment centres, go kart tracks, indoor play centres, inflable play operators, nature-based attractions, theme parks, trampoline arenas and waterparks across Australia as well as New Zealand.

An AALARA spokesperson explains “AALARA is committed to providing members with a professional national body which fosters personal and professional growth and development through training and education programs and networking between members.

“Whether you are a business owner, company director or senior management, the essential tools, resources and solutions provided by AALARA will enhance your personal development, business growth and profitability.”

Operators, owners, manufacturers, suppliers, consultants and any other interested parties are eligible to join AALARA as Active Members.
