FEC of the Year Judge Phil Taylor


presenting the award to Chris Tricker,


general manager, VR Park & Dig It Emaar Entertainment LLC


Chris Tricker GM, VR Park, The Dubai Mall talks to Park World: PW: What did it mean to you to win this award? CT: It has been a hugely successful year for VR Park. To be recognized as FEC of the Year at the Park World Excellence Awards is both an honour, and a testament to the time and investment that Emaar Entertainment has put into this unique destination.”


PW: What do you think made you stand out to the judges? CT: “Combining augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) via 18 interactive experiences and rides, VR Park is the first of


VR Park, Dubai


its kind in the Middle East. Additionally, I think what makes it stand out is the concept on ‘shared escapism’ to foster multiplayer experiences that are new and innovative, such as Paradrop or Dubai Drone. Additionally, the park exists to enable anyone of all ages and backgrounds to have an exciting and affordable experience within a convenient location”


PW: How useful is the event as a networking opportunity? CT: “In addition to winning a prestigious award which we are thrilled about, this event provides the perfect opportunity to showcase our brands, products and services to others in the industry. It’s also a chance to help build long term business relationships.


PW: Will you be taking part again next year? CT: “Winning is a great recognition, and we sure hope to return next year and to impress the judges with new innovations that will make our attraction stand out even more.”


Live Entertainment


of the Year Puy du Fou for Le Premier Royaume (The First Kingdom)


CEO Guillaume Gallaire, says: “Firstly, it’s a great honour for Puy du Fou to be awarded for the second year in a row for best Live Entertainment production. This distinction crowns the great work performed by all our teams to deliver the best immersive, authentic and one-of-a-kind experience to our guests. “I guess the judges, as our guests, have been touched


by the way Puy du Fou always tries to touch the hearts by creating highly themed and surprising experiences. Each show we create is different from the other ones and so you can live an extensive travel through history.


Sponsored by: Thus, ‘Le Premier Royaume’ adds a new touch in this


travel by staging the ‘Ancient Francia’, this mysterious and crucial period when Clovis, a very important character in France history, funded the first Kingdom of France. “Thanks to the great organisation of this warm event, we


have had the opportunity to meet colleagues and peers from the park and show industry. We deserve all our encounters: future will tell us where it can bring us; but for sure, it was a true pleasure to meet them all.” “A proverb from Vendee says: “good things come in threes”. So, see you next year
