On the heels of success in 2008 and 2009, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) expands its Safety Institutes program in 2010, with stops in Asia and the Middle East as well as the Americas.

Operators, developers, and government officials are invited to learn from industry experts as they discuss how to achieve safety excellence in the attractions industry.

As Charles Bray, President and Chief Executive of IAAPA explains, "IAAPA has always been committed to safety and fostering member education, which is why itâs exciting to expand our safety education efforts this year, and address region-specific issues.

"Participants at the Safety Institutes will truly benefit from the speakersâ industry experience and the focus on best practices."

The following Safety Institutes are planned for 2010:

IAAPA Safety Institute in the People's Republic of China

The daylong institute will be held in partnership with the China Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (CAAPA) during its annual Expo, and includes collaboration with the China Special Equipment Inspection and Research Institute (CSEI) and the General Administration of Quality Supervision Inspection and Quarantine of the Peopleâs Republic of China (AQSIQ).
