Vortex International Expands Relationship with Wanda Group


Vortex International recently announced a new agreement with the Wanda Group, China’s largest entertainment group. The new project calls for a large interactive aquatic play structure for the waterpark component of Chongqing Wanda Cultural Tourism City.

Valued at $10.7 billion, the Group’s latest development project is one of its largest in history, set in the heart of China’s most vibrant economic area in an appeal to foreign visitors. This collaboration deepens the relationship between Vortex International and the Wanda Group, after the pair’s work on the Wanda Xishuangbanna International Resort waterpark (photos), which features the largest Vortex Splashpad® built to date in terms of area.

Vortex has been actively expanding in both the Chinese market and the entertainment field. Vortex President and CEO Stephen Hamelin and members of the management team joined the Quebec delegation that accompanied Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard on an economic mission to China in January, which was instrumental in the signing of the new agreement.

According to Hamelin, “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Wanda Group once again. This project will help Vortex consolidate its position as a key player in the entertainment field and expand its reach in the family-oriented aquatic play industry.”
