IAAPA update regarding coronavirus

The health and safety of our members is IAAPA’s top priority. Since early January, IAAPA has been actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak that originated in China. We are working with our IAAPA Asia Pacific offices to receive timely updates and help provide support to members located in the region, and following the daily updates and recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO).

IAAPA continues to monitor the situation closely and provide updates here. This page also includes links to the resources from WHO and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and complimentary IAAPA member resources, including the IAAPA Security Advisory Program.

At this time, we are moving forward with the IAAPA EMEA Spring Summit, 12-14 May in Rome as scheduled, but we are closely monitoring coronavirus-related developments and will let you know if plans change. You can also check the Summit website for updates.

IAAPA members in need of immediate assistance should contact Jakob Wahl or Mani Roth directly.
