The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) welcomed full houses to its annual weekend of events comprising the two-day TEA Summit (April 3-4) and the Thea Awards Gala (April 5) 2014 at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.

Day One of the TEA Summit was the Executive Master Class, an opportunity for frank, peer-to-peer discussion and exchange of business development tools and resources. The dialog continued next day on a broader scale with Thea Case Studies Day offering presentations from the leaders of the projects that were formally honored the following evening (April 5) at the Thea Awards Gala. 

The morning of April 5 was set aside for select industry leaders to offer experience and guidance in a TEA NextGen interchange, the “Superheroes Breakfast.”

Two aspects in particular lent special vitality, interest and meaning to the dialog throughout the weekend:

  • International scope: Outreach from TEA's Europe & Middle East and Asia Pacific Divisions helped the Thea Awards Committee identify a rich global slate of awardees.

  • Inter-generational exchange: Via TEA's flourishing NextGen Initiative, aspiring students and recent grads brought their energy to the group.

Excitement, ideas and networking flowed across oceans, borders, industry sectors and disciplines, and between age groups... Click here to read full article and see many photos.
