IAAPA Reopening Guidance

Developed in partnership with attractions members and operators from around the world, as well as health-related guidance from government agencies and medical professionals, IAAPA’s “Reopening Guidance: Considerations for the Attractions Industry” outlines principles and approaches to consider for reopening once local government officials in your area remove “stay-at-home” orders, allow non-essential businesses to reopen, and say it’s safe for citizens to move around their community.

BPAA Reopening Resource Center

BPAA Reopening Resource Center: The goal of the resource center is to provide operators with the tools, best practices, and resources to help them reopen their businesses to the public. Resources are separated into 6 categories: Marketing, Staffing, Bowling, Food & Beverage, Attractions, and Resources. While no two businesses in America today will reopen exactly the same and under the same state and local guidelines, use the resources that make sense for your business model.
