One week, three amazing TEA events!
Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the new TEA INSPIRE program! Join us April 13-15 for three incredible events that will empower you with the most advanced education and expertise in the themed entertainment industry.
We start the week off with our pilot program, TEA INSPIRE Leadership Forum, which is then followed by 1.5 days of TEA INSPIRE (formerly Summit and Case Studies). We close out the week with the 29th Annual Thea Awards Gala, where we will honor and celebrate this year’s Thea Award recipients.
What is INSPIRE Leadership Forum?
Thursday, April 13
The 2023 TEA INSPIRE Leadership Forum is a pilot event including a presentation and facilitators for small group roundtable discussions on attendee-selected topics. All registrants are senior-level executives from companies and/or organizations within the themed entertainment industry who are responsible for leading teams of people and/or hold the ultimate responsibility for their company’s success and culture. Owner and Leadership attendance will be curated to best represent a wide range of industry experience and viewpoints. The small group dynamic immerses the attendee in peer-driven learning and thought leadership, purposeful networking, and a safe, non-competitive environment where attendees can share expertise and challenge one another to arrive at better decisions. Discussion topics will help the vision for future TEA Leadership Forum programming. To preserve the integrity of this peer forum, TEA reserves the right to decline registrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements.

TEA INSPIRE (formerly Summit and Case Studies) will usher in a revitalized focus on celebrating excellence in themed entertainment across the globe, offering attendees a fully immersive networking and educational experience and lasting inspiration. This signature event draws themed entertainment professionals at all levels and disciplines within the industry, from emerging leaders to the most senior executives and carries on the tradition of case studies but with a deeper dive in direct response to attendee feedback. In keeping with tradition, INSPIRE will be capped off with the Thea Awards Gala on Saturday evening.
