Experienced leisure industry professional Christoph Kiessling will talk about his life and experiences in operating world-class attractions during the Euro Attractions Show (EAS) Leadership Breakfast 2017 in Berlin on Wednesday September 27. Since 1994, Kiessling has fulfilled key leadership positions at the Loro Parque zoo in the Canary Islands and he founded the Siam Park water park in Tenerife in 2005. Today, he is also the general manager of Siam Park. Kiessling will share his knowledge, experience, and vision for his company and the industry as he presents the keynote address during the EAS Leadership Breakfast in the EAS Theater at the Berlin Messe Exhibition Center.
TripAdvisor customers have named Loro Parque the best zoo in Europe and the second best zoo in the world. Opened originally as a paradise for parrots, the park has evolved into a world-class zoo that has entertained more than 40 million visitors since it opened in 1972.The park invests heavily and has become a leading advocate for wildlife conservation. In 2008, Kiessling opened the Siam Park water park on the other side of Tenerife. The high-quality park is known for its unique themed slides constructed on a natural slope, its green vegetation, and Asian theming, a wide range of food and beverage offerings, and unique sights and vistas. Siam Park has been recognized as one of the best water parks in the world by TripAdvisor.
Christoph Kiessling and his team continue to develop their attractions with new offerings, rides, and general park expansions. The team is also developing new attractions including an aquarium in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and another Siam Park-style water park in the same area. The aquarium is scheduled to open later in 2017.
