PGAV Destinations’ Jim Wible to Present at TEDx Gateway Arch December 10

PGAV Destinations’ Director of Attraction Development Jim Wible will be presenting at the TEDx Gateway Arch BOUNCE event on Saturday, December 10.

jim-pgav“Throughout history, a lot of the great inventions were actually invented by teams, not by a single person,” explains Wible in an interview with HECTV St. Louis. “There are a lot of kids in school who think they can’t possibly be that one genius, when in reality we need all those kids to embrace science, to embrace art, to embrace all the things you need to embrace to make the big ideas that change the world.”

For nearly 30 years, Jim Wible has helped to create some of the world’s most remarkable theme parks, zoos, aquariums, and museums, where an estimated ten to fifteen million families happily come together each year. Devoted to communicating ideas and bringing imagined worlds to life, he and PGAV Destinations partner with leaders in the entertainment industry like SeaWorld, the Georgia Aquarium, Universal Studios, and Chimelong Ocean Kingdom. Together, we create new attractions that entertain and inspire. Jim’s passion is building one-of-a-kind destinations that bring families together and make memories that last forever.

BOUNCE: An Innovative Playground of Possibilities is taking place on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at the Skip Viragh Center for the Arts on the campus of Chaminade College Preparatory School. This year’s event features 14 speakers and entertainers engaged in cutting-edge work throughout our community. Their fascinating presentations and energetic event ensures that

everyone attending will end up inspired, and maybe even in someplace completely different. Attendees leave ready to take things in a new direction — with more energy than ever to learn, connect and grow. RSVP on Facebook for Jim’s presentation and purchase tickets TEDx Gateway Arch online.
