THE ECA-BLOOLOOP GLOBAL ATTRACTION LANDSCAPE - A NEW RESOURCE TO

NAVIGATE A DIVERSE, DYNAMIC, AND INTERCONNECTED ATTRACTIONS INDUSTRY

The attractions industry is expanding and evolving rapidly, introducing new projects, players, and relationships.

Covering this fast moving industry, bl bl ooloop brings attractions professionals together online and in-person with upto-date news, interviews, commentary, and events. In collaboration with

Entertainment + Culture Advisors (ECA), ooloop is introducing a new resource that catalogs and explores the diverse mix of existing and emerging players that define the global attractions industry landscape. The ECA-blooloop

Global Attraction Landscape is a dynamic industry reference that will grow and develop with regular updates that expand its coverage and respond to changes in the attractions community.

With its first release, the ECA-blooloop

Global Attraction Landscape focuses on large-scale parks, including a diverse set of theme, amusement, cultural, and marine parks, and profiles an initial selected group of 15 leading operators,

10 emerging players, and 5 pipeline projects. The profiles include company descriptions, existing and pipeline projects, and important partnerships, with a focus on notable intellectual property (IP) incorporation. Keeping pace with an expanding portfolio of players is an exciting challenge. ECA and blooloop look forward to the feedback from the attractions community as we work on this long term project to create a key reference for the industry.

Motivations

We saw an opportunity to complement Blooloop’s upto-date news, interviews, commentary, and events with a resource that profiles and catalogs a diverse mix of global players that are driving attraction development around the globe. Professionals, press, enthusiasts, and students are interested in understanding the mix of operators, relationships, and projects that define the attractions industry and this landscape resource is an initial exploration of how this information can be organized, presented, and shared. With feedback from the attractions community, the landscape will develop and grow.

Intentions, Sources & Confidentiality

This report is intended for general information purposes and these profiles are not official or comprehensive summaries of the companies and projects. The team collects data and information from company filings, press coverage, and other industry sources and we do not assume responsibility for inaccuracies from our various data sources. However, we will work to correct and update the landscape with feedback and updates from the attractions community. Also, we are careful to protect confidential information shared by industry partners and clients.

Updates

The team works to present current information, but with a focused scope for this initial landscape version and a fast moving industry some data and information may be excluded and other information may become outdated between updates to the landscape. This includes the exchange rates used to list pricing for the various attractions in a single reference currency (USD). We look forward to updating and growing the report with the feedback from the attractions community.
