And the


winner is… T


Hosted by UK comedian Ian Moore, the second annual Park World Excellence Awards took place on Wednesday 18 September at the Le Méridien Etoile, Paris.


he evening kicked off with a fabulous drinks reception sponsored by Sally Dark Rides, with Digital Centre inviting guests to


have some very tongue-in-cheek photos taken in its Mini Igo photobooth fbefore guests were seated for a three course meal and award presentations for outstanding performance. Speaking ahead of the presentations, Datateam


media director Paul Ryder said: “This year, the volume of entries was incredible – and the standard of these entries was just as exceptional. “Each and every shortlisted company tonight is


playing a vital role in defining excellence across the industry and should be incredibly proud to have made it to this stage.” He also thanked the judges, all of whom he


said had “committed their time and expertise to ensure that the rightful winners would be taking home a trophy.” Organised by Park World publisher Datateam


Business Media, the Park World Excellence Awards were launched in 2018 to celebrate Europe’s most outstanding parks, projects, rides and attractions. This year’s event saw the addition of the Middle
