Join the TEA

The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) encompasses a community of more than 1200 member companies in 40 countries with expertise in storytelling, design, economics, logistics, architecture, construction and manufacturing.

TEA membership provides opportunities to develop new professional contacts and connect with the global resources to make your upcoming projects successful.

Additionally, TEA membership expands awareness of research and teaching at colleges and universities in fields ranging from themed entertainment design to theme park operations. Connections with students allow you access to the best and brightest new minds and to mentor students in internship programs.

Finally, TEA members are given privileged access to  behind-the-scenes tours at a wide range of attractions and experiences. With a variety of member open houses, educational seminars, round-table discussions, social mixers and parties, you are able to gain access to global resources that will improve your industry knowledge and keep you on the leading edge of the themed entertainment business.

Providing the right channels and opportunities to network, learn and help your business or career grow, TEA can connect you to the expert resources you need.

Make new connections by volunteering.
