AIMS International, the unmatched leader in amusement safety education, will return to Galveston, TX, for its 2023 annual Safety Seminar. Attendees will learn from world-class speakers, veteran trainers, and the industry’s top professionals sharing their expertise, delivering over 300 hours of educational content.

Register now for the #1 amusement industry safety seminar worldwide.

2022 ClassroomWith more than 500 students expected, it will soon be time to sign up for the 2023 AIMS International Safety Seminar and select from over 200 different course offerings featuring over 300 hours of educational content that best fit your unique needs.

New for 2023, AIMS International has added the Adventure Attractions Track specifically designed for this growing segment of our industry. This new program was created to address safety concerns of amusement attractions that fall outside the traditional theme park, carnival and water park. These attractions include mountain coasters, trampoline courts, inflatables, parasailing, aerial adventure courses, zip lines, eco tours, tethered helium balloons and many others that are not covered in the traditional amusement industry safety education curriculum.

"We are really excited about this new track," said MJ Brewer, AIMS International Executive Director. "We assembled a group of industry experts to form a committee to create the safety education geared to this part of the industry." Brewer said as the number of non-traditional amusement rides and devices, termed “Adventure Attractions,” continues to grow into a much larger segment of the amusement industry, AIMS International saw the need to develop a specialized safety education curriculum."

In addition to the new Adventure Attractions Track, the AARMS program will introduce its new, year two curriculum, and 2023 AIMS International Safety Seminar registrants will have the option to select a track during registration which will auto-schedule the attendee in the relevant courses or they can customize their schedule with select courses of their choosing.

AIMS International will continue its successful partnerships with E&A and IRT to deliver world-class, innovative, and customized programming from industry leaders in the aquatics and operations verticals. Additionally, this year’s seminar will include over 20 hours of inspection and maintenance education, delivered entirely in Spanish, a popular offering in recent years.

Returning to Galveston, TX, January 8-13, 2023, attendees will build their own schedule, choosing from over 300 hours of content to best suit their needs and desired outcome. Actionable safety information is carried home to share with colleagues and co-workers.
