This year due to the ongoing pandemic, the annual IAAPA conference has gone virtual. With the event making a return this week, it seemed fitting to remember back to our visit to the conference last year.

This photo update contains images from last year's conference closing event, IAAPA Celebrates, where the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and Skull Island were bought out for a night in November. The spotlight that night was the brand new attraction: Hagrid's Magic Creatures Motorbike Adventure. Universal and IAAPA put on an amazing event.
