International Adventure Park Meeting 2016

The IAPA has set the course for the future. Its meeting is Germany’s most important event in the adventure park sector. After the succesful IAPM in 2015 in Berlin, ropes course owners and customers as well as manufacturers and hardware companies will meet again this year in november to share ideas, innovations and experiences.

 This year’s meeting will extend two days as usual. In advance of the meeting we offer a TA / SMA update. The Holiday Inn Berlin Airport – Conference Centre offers modern and well equipped conference rooms and exhibit space in an outstanding ambience.


The exhibition will be open for all participants and visitors on nov 15th and 16th from 9am to 6pm on an area of 625 sq m.

If you are interested to present your ideas and products or services, don’t miss this appointment in November! Every year we welcome the global players of the ropes course industry who present their products, solutions and services during the IAPM. As in recent years the popular IAPA Innovation Award will be awarded. Participation is free for exhibitors.
