Programme & Reception for 6th TiLEzone London Wed 16 March 2011

Leisure industry event returns to London Transport Museum after 2010 success

Warminster, Wiltshire, UK, 17 February 2011 – Building on an outstanding London event in 2010, the 6th TiLEzone London seminar will have two sessions specifically for operators and owners of leisure attractions & museums,which will help draw professionals from across the world’s leisure-related attraction industry, and two sessions on business opportunities overseas. There will be an Electrosonic sponsored reception the night before at the Museum of London, which, as with last year’s reception at Tate Modern, will enable the TiLEzone participants to network before the following day’s seminar.

As in 2010, the TiLEzone will be staged at the London Transport Museum and is being organised by Andrich International with supported from UK Trade & Investment.

Richard Curtis, Andrich International MD, comments: “Technology to deepen and broaden the appeal of museums, visitor attractions and other leisure-based facilities is moving ahead at afantastic pace, so it’s only natural that this TiLEzone should throw the spotlight on some of these developments and their likely impact on our industry. As ever, we have a top line-up of speakers who not only know their technology but also have experience of applying it to this market.”

Juliana Delaney, CEO, Continuum; Steve Shears, Director of Site Search & Acquisitions, Merlin Entertainment Group; and Linda Conlon, CEO, Centre for Life will contribute to a session that will also include a panel of practitioners to discuss the designer-client relationship and review projects that have been both rough and smooth. They will attempt to come to consensus on key recommendations for new projects and how to avoid potential pitfalls.

With suppliers of products and services looking for new business, as last year, there will news of upcoming international construction developments in the museums and leisure sector, with speakers addressing projects from Hong Kong, Brazil, Singapore, Turkey, Russia and Poland. Also, there will be a presentation on the Eden Project’s aim to have five other Eden Projects overseas.

“Our industry has never been more international in scope and the next TiLEzone will again reflect this,” concludes Curtis. “With the help of the UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) we will be showcasing some of the opportunities that exist around the world, and this kind of market intelligence will be worth the conference admission price alone.

“The 5th TiLEzone London was very well attended and, as space is limited, we encourage anyone interested in attending the 2011 event to register as soon as possible.”

The 6th TiLEzone London will take place at the London Transport Museum on Wednesday 16 March 2011. In addition to delegate pre-registration, a small number of sponsor and exhibitor options are available.
