INTRODUCING INSPIRE! TEA'S REIMAGINED APPROACH TO GIVING OUR MEMBERS MORE OF WHAT THEY WANT.
The newly rebranded TEA INSPIRE program (formerly Summit and Case Studies) will empower our members with peer-lead learning and expertise in the themed entertainment industry. In order to provide our members with more of what they want, we have developed two days of unique and engaging content.

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.

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.

The Thea Awards were created by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) in 1994 to help realize a key mission of the association: bringing recognition to achievement, talent and personal excellence within the themed entertainment industry. TEA’s Thea Awards have become internationally recognized as a symbol of excellence.
Rewarding excellence for the creation of compelling educational, historical and entertainment projects, the TEA’s prestigious Thea Awards reinforce the value of experience design and themed entertainment approaches to engaging people worldwide.
The annual Thea Awards Gala is a black-tie dinner and awards ceremony held every spring in honor of the Thea Award recipients. This elegant affair is the culminating event of TEA’s biggest weekend of the year, which kicks off with the newly reimagined two-day TEA INSPIRE program.
