Report for TEA by David Price -- "High five" to the TEA Western North America Division and its Strategic Partner - ArtCenter - for launching the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) Education Forum 2017, which presented a series of panels addressing "Best Practices" topics in the themed entertainment industry. 

To recap this successful series:

  • June 6 - "Scenic Design Development & Integration" - moderated by Todd Gallagher of Technifex

Many thanks to all the sponsors, speakers and organizers who made this program possible.            

TEA's Education Forum 2017 was conducted at the ArtCenter Hillside Campus in Ahmanson Auditorium and the Western Division Board of Directors and the Education Committee owe a special word of appreciation to ArtCenter for hosting. 

On behalf of TEA, we look forward to building upon our special partnership with ArtCenter.

Our intention is to offer a new series in 2018 with new subjects, new speakers and new ideas as we continue to examine and share "Best Practices" in our themed entertainment industry. The TEA Western Division encourages and welcomes ideas and suggestions from its members as we build upon the success of the Education Forum program. -- D.P.
