IAAPA Expo Asia enhances education offering with Insights day and full line-up of speakers

IAAPA has put together a diverse and knowledgeable line-up of speakers for an expanded educational offering at this year’s IAAPA Expo Asia




Ivan Chak, Linda Dong and Yuyi Zhoa are all set to speak during education sessions this year

IAAPA is expanding its education offering for this year’s IAAPA Expo Asia, introducing a full-day for attractions experts to share their experience and knowledge with attendees.

Taking place on August 10 and called ‘2021 Insights’, the day of talks will focus on discovering new ways to move forward, with attendees able to learn from stories of business recovery, innovative thinking, new concepts and new ideas that are helping to shape the future of the industry.

In addition to its Insights day, a full programme of events are scheduled to take place during the Expo at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, which runs from 10-13 August.

The education conference features a range of speakers from across the industry, with all sessions to be simultaneously translated in English and Mandarin Chinese.

Among those speaking will be Ivan Chak, regional director, operations for Harves Global Entertainment - the company behind the first Manchester United Theatre of Dreams - a first-of-its kind mixed reality gaming experience featuring interactive exhibits, retail, and F&B.

Also set to speak is Linda Dong, president of China Leisure who recently spoke to Planet Attractions about bringing a Nickelodeon FEC to Asia, China’s FEC market and the importance of major IPs to developments in the country.

With eyes on the upcoming Universal Beijing Resort, another speaker that’s sure to pique interest is Yuyi Zhao, associate project manager for the multi-billion dollar development.

The world starts to turn

Originally scheduled for Macao, China, in June, IAAPA Expo Asia was moved to Shanghai as a response to the ongoing global pandemic and the “growing optimism for increased recovery as the year progresses.”

In addition to education sessions, the expo, which took place virtually in 2020, will also feature special events and the trade show floor.

“During IAAPA Expo Asia we will follow safety guidelines and operational procedures recommended by global and health authorities, and event industry experts,” said Hal McEvoy, IAAPA’s president and CEO.

“We look forward to returning to Shanghai for IAAPA Expo Asia, and once again bringing the global attractions industry together."

IAAPA Expo Asia will be the first of three returning IAAPA events, with its Expos in Europe and Orlando also set to return in 2021.

Registration for all three Expos is now open. For more information click here
