Why this event?
Vision 2030 InitiativeOne of the primary drivers of change in Saudi Arabia's entertainment sector is the nation's Vision 2030 initiative. This ambitious plan aims to diversify the Saudi economy away from its traditional reliance on oil. As part of this vision, there's a strong emphasis on developing the entertainment and tourism sectors to both enhance the quality of life for residents and attract international tourists.
The entertainment industry of Saudi Arabia is growing massively. Saudi Arabia has been putting its best effort to build a unique and world-class entertainment hub that includes innovative rides, cultural or historical attractions, and mega sporting events. Projects like Six Flags, Qiddiya and Saudi Transformers Theme Parks are redefining the future of entertainment in Saudi Arabia.
In line with Vision 2030’s efforts to enhance Saudi Arabia’s entertainment, culture, and tourism offerings, we are pleased to bring to you our “Theme Parks and Entertainment Conference, KSA – 2nd Edition” which is a comprehensive one-day conference designed to bring together industry professionals, innovators, and enthusiasts in the theme park and amusement industry. The event aims to explore the latest trends, technologies, and strategies that are shaping the future of theme parks and family entertainment centers.
Who Should Attend
Why Sponsor the Event
Theme parks are synonymous with immersive experiences, lighting plays a pivotal role in creating these magical atmospheres. Lighting companies joining us at the event can position themselves at the forefront of an industry that heavily relies on innovative lighting solutions.
Theme parks are the epitome of sensory experiences, where both audio and visual elements converge to transport visitors into fantastical worlds. For audio-visual (AV) companies, sponsoring a theme park event is a strategic opportunity to showcase their cutting-edge technologies in an environment that thrives on AV innovation. By aligning with such events, AV companies can demonstrate the transformative power of their solutions in enhancing storytelling, immersion, and overall visitor engagement. Moreover, as theme parks constantly push the boundaries of entertainment, they present a lucrative market for AV advancements.
Theme parks provide a platform where storytelling and branding converge to enhance the visitor experience. Digital signage plays an integral role in this ecosystem, offering versatile solutions for wayfinding, ride wait times, entertainment, and promotional content. By sponsoring a theme park event, digital signage companies can spotlight their state-of-the-art technologies and demonstrate their transformative impact on guest engagement and park operations.
In Theme parks every detail from visuals to sounds, contributes to the overall visitor experience. Acoustics play a crucial role in this narrative, ensuring that soundscapes are clear, ambient noises are controlled, and the auditory experience complements the visual spectacle. For acoustic companies, sponsoring a theme park event offers a prime opportunity to highlight the significance of sound design and acoustic optimization in creating memorable attractions.
In the evolving landscape of theme parks, immersive experiences are paramount, and many parks are integrating cinematic elements into their attractions. Whether it's 4D theatres, interactive movie experiences, or attractions that blend rides with film, the line between theme parks and cinematic experiences is blurring. For cinema seating companies, this presents a unique opportunity to showcase how their specialized seating can enhance these hybrid experiences. With features like motion synchronization, enhanced ergonomics for prolonged viewing, and integrated technology ports, modern cinema seats are not just about watching a movie; they're about experiencing it.
Theme parks aim to provide an enjoyable and memorable experience for their visitors. Effective wayfinding enhances the guest experience by helping visitors navigate the park with ease. When guests can easily find their way to attractions, restaurants, restrooms, and other amenities, they are more likely to have a positive experience and leave with a favorable impression of the park.
