Mike West (Senior Director, Executive Producer NBC-Universal):

“It was a privilege to host the Fast & Furious Supercharged event at Universal Studios Florida. Universal Creative is always proud and excited to share our 'behind-the-story' experiences and welcome TEA members, many of whom helped us create this fabulous new attraction. These events are such a great way to not only recognize and thank our project partners but also present an excellent opportunity for everyone to meet new colleagues throughout the industry. As Dominic Toretto would say, 'It’s Family Forever!' Thanks to our TEA family for taking a supercharged ride with us!”



Joe Fox (Engineering Manager, Birket Engineering):

“An exceptionally well executed and orchestrated event showcasing another project from one of our industry leaders – with access to behind the scenes and 'how it got done' details not available anywhere else. ONLY the TEA makes these types of events possible!”
