Thea Awards & TEA Summit

The prestigious Thea Award is considered one of the attraction industry's greatest honors. The awards were founded in 1994 by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). TEA's annual Thea Awards Gala is an elegant, black-tie dinner event held in the spring in Los Angeles, following TEA's annual, 2-day industry Summit. Together, TEA's Summit & Thea Awards comprise the Association's most important weekend of events. They are also vital business networking gatherings.
