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. Learn about programming and speakers, awards recipients, past events and how to become an attendee, participant, volunteer or sponsor.

TEA names 21st annual Thea Awards recipients; Gala to be held in Anaheim in 2015

Burbank, Calif. USA, 18 Nov. 2014 -- "Disney’s 'it's a small world' has been named for TEA’s Thea Classic Award – one of the new international slate of 17 Thea honorees announced today, to be awarded March 21, 2015 at the annual TEA Thea Awards Gala in Anaheim,” said Steve Birket (Birket Engineering), incoming president of the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). Birket said, “‘small world’ stands as a timeless classic – and a metaphor for our increasingly global industry. The new Thea recipients are distinguished by uplifting messages of unity and diversity – hope rising from tragedy in the National September 11 Memorial Museum, the power of Harry Potter, the pioneering East-West collaboration in Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, interactions with our natural environment as in Kongeparken's Gratassland, and many others. Each Thea-honored project represents a step forward in our industry and our collective drive toward excellence in the making of compelling experiences and places. We encourage the public and the press to learn about these achievements and their creators – and to celebrate with us.”
