The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) has announced Andrew Lee will be the executive director of its new office for the Asia Pacific, starting September 16 and working out of Hong Kong.
A veteran of the travel and hospitality industry, he will be responsible for expanding and enhancing the association’s services in the region and will oversee government relations, communications, membership development, education and the annual Asian Attractions Expo trade show.
“Asia has the fastest-growing attractions industry in the world so it is only natural for IAAPA to open an office in the region,” says IAAPA chairman Chip Cleary. “IAAPA Asia Pacific extends the trade association’s global presence and becomes the association’s third regional office, joining those already established in Europe and Latin America.”
Lee served most recently as a director of a joint alliance between AsiaWorld-Expo, Global Sources and Pico Global Services.
