TiLEzone returns to London for a sixth time on Wednesday, March 16, with a technology-focused seminar programme and additional networking opportunities both before and after the event.
This one-day conference for attractions industry professionals of all kinds will feature two sessions for operators and a further two focusing on projects overseas.
“Technology to deepen and broaden the appeal of museums, visitor attractions and other leisure-based facilities is moving ahead at a fantastic pace,” notes Richard Curtis of organiser Andrich International. “It’s only natural that this TiLEzone should throw the spotlight on some of these developments and their likely impact on our industry. As ever, we have a top line-up of speakers who not only know their technology but also have experience of applying it to this market.”
Alan Wilkinson from Electrosonic will review new and emerging technologies, while Kevin Murphy, Event Communications, and Loic Tallon from Pocket Proof will examine “making an experience mobile.” A session of 3D will be delivered by film producer Julian Napier and Dave Postlethwaite of Centrescreen Productions.
Following the success of the eco project in Cornwall, England, Derek Johnson will outline plans to develop five new Eden Projects overseas, while other speakers will highlight new projects and opportunities in Hong Kong, Brazil, Singapore, Turkey, Russia and Poland.
A panel including Merlin Entertainments’ director of site search and acquisitions, Steve Shears, Juliana Delaney of Continuum, Linda Conlon from the Centre for Life and BRC Imagination Arts’ will finish the day’s programme with a discussion on the designer-client relationship.
An Electrosonic-sponsored reception at the Museum of London on March 15 will enable TiLEzone participants to network before the following day’s conference, while a TEA Mixer following the event on Wednesday will allow delegates to unwind and continue their discussions.
Organised by Andrich International with supported from UK Trade & Investment, TiLEZone was born as one-day spin-off of the TiLE (Trends in Leisure and Entertainment) European conference. Additional events have been held in Poland.
“The 5th TiLEzone London was very well attended and, as space is limited, we encourage anyone interested in attending the 2011 event to register as soon as possible,” urges Curtis.
