Polin Waterparks is celebrating its inaugural Virtual Award for exceptional virtual booth design and digital content at The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Virtual Expo Asia 2020.

IAAPA, having closely monitored the COVID-19 situation since early January, chose to postpone IAAPA Expo Asia 2020 to 2021 and offered an alternative way to connect, network and discover IAAPA engaged digitally with IAAPA Virtual Expo: Asia!

During IAAPA Virtual Expo: Asia attendees voted for virtual booth innovations in three categories: Best Booth Downloads, Best Booth Videos and Most Engaging Chat Room.

Polin Waterparks Director of Marketing & Communications, Sohret Pakis advised "our vision as one of the leading companies in our industry is to serve our industry and stay connected. During these unprecedented times, IAAPA Virtual Expo has been a wonderful opportunity to stay connected with our industry. Just as importantly as fulfilling business commitments, we stayed connected thanks to this first ever virtual expo of our industry.

“Together with our attractions community, we revolutionised how we network and how we work and how we serve our community. The Polin team love what we do and we believe that our industry brings happiness to our World. It's an honour to be recognised for our efforts by this award. Grateful! And congratulations to all winners and to all who have been a part of this first virtual expo of IAAPA.”

Over an immersive, three day experience, attendees had a chance to visit the virtual trade show floor, meet with colleagues and professionals at the digital networking lounges and learn best practices and trends during the virtual education sessions.

The IAAPA Virtual Expo: Asia was attended by more than 4,000 participants, featured 131 companies on the virtual trade show floor, and was widely followed online and on social media. During IAAPA Virtual Expo: Asia, global attractions industry professionals took part in a diverse, international exhibit hall with eight unique pavilions, nine education sessions, and seven IAAPA networking events.
