Storyland Studios to be presenting partner for 2023 Theme Index and Museum Index Report

Storyland Studios, the global experience design and strategy firm comprised of former Disney Imagineering, Universal Creative and Merlin Entertainments alumni with offices and staff across the U.S. and Europe, has become the presenting partner of the 2023 Theme Index and Museum Index Report, to be released in summer 2024.  

The TEA/AECOM Theme Index and Museum Index is an annual collaboration between AECOM, an international infrastructure consulting firm, and the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). Storyland Studios will be the presenting partner for the 2023 edition. The new edition will feature an introduction and industry review from Storyland’s Partner and Chief Strategy Officer Ben Thompson.  

“The Index is the leading source for attractions attendance and insights,” Thompson said “Storyland Studios and our Storyland Consulting practice are proud to contribute to this incredibly important industry reference. Strategy and data-led insights are crucial for operators and owners to make informed decisions about their current and potential new attractions, and this report is a key foundation to much of that vital work.”  

A longstanding source of industry data, this calendar-year study of global attractions attendance is free to park operators, land developers and the travel industry. Top worldwide theme parks, amusement parks, waterparks, museums and theme park group operators are named, ranked by attendance, and evaluated to identify industry trends. The global market is studied as a whole, and each of its main regions is also profiled separately: Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific; North America and Latin America. Information gleaned from this report is leveraged in feasibility studies, strategies, and business plans, ultimately promoting the health and growth of the themed entertainment industry. 

Throughout the year, Storyland Consulting will share insights and implications from the report on its website and social media channels. The report will be available to download from the TEA, AECOM and Storyland Studios websites.

“TEA is thrilled to welcome Storyland as presenting sponsor and collaborator in the production of the 2023 Theme and Museum Index,” stated TEA Executive Director, Lindsey Nelson. “Together with our longstanding partner, AECOM, we are excited to leverage the best of all of our collective knowledge and insights, with what is sure to be an enhanced report, benefiting TEA members and the industry at large.”

“AECOM is pleased to once again bring industry insights and information to this fast evolving and growing industry.  We are excited to have Storyland as presenting partner and contributing to the production and insights,” expressed Chris Yoshii, AECOM Vice President & Global Director of Leisure and Culture Services – Asia. “Storyland’s involvement allows us to produce and distribute this high quality and timely global resource freely to the industry.”
