Park World Excellence Awards


With the finalists announced, all eyes are on the inaugural Park World Excellence Awards ceremony – taking place at the W Amsterdam on 26 September 2018


T


he finalists for this highly-anticipated new event in the attraction and amusement industry, the Park World Excellence Awards, have been determined by the judges. The independent panel of experts has also


selected the winners in each category – set to be revealed in Amsterdam during a premium awards evening on Wednesday 26 September. Launched this year by Datateam Business Media and backed by key industry names including Bertazzon, MACK Rides, Polin, ProSlide, Semnox and wiegand.maelzer, the Awards is designed to recognise Europe’s leading parks, rides, experiences and attractions; honouring exceptional park operators, suppliers, manufacturers and entertainment specialists.


Acknowledging innovation The Awards opened with the entry and nomination stage, where members of the industry from across the continent were able to make their voices heard; putting forward their cutting-edge projects and demonstrating their commitment to recognising excellence in a range of diverse categories. The ‘Park’ awards are set to honour standout theme parks, family parks and


waterparks, including separate categories to highlight this year’s top seasonal event and the best new in-park show or spectacular. Encompassing everything from roller coasters to dark rides, thrill rides and


waterslides, the ‘Ride/Attraction’ awards will showcase the industry’s most imaginative experiences. The ‘General’ categories, meanwhile, will recognise inventive products and the best application of technology within parks, as well as an outstanding individual who has served the European attraction and amusement industry with distinction, through the special ‘Industry Icon’ award.


The highest standard Following a fantastic response, entries and nominations were placed in the hands of the judging panel, consisting of Teri Ruffley, the principal of Attraction Brand Consulting and IP director for The London Resort; established industry journalist and owner of Ride and Park Media, Marcus Gaines; author and founder of online guidebook OOPARC, François Mayné; leading edutainment consultant Marek Pisarski; and Emmanuel Mongon, owner of visitor attraction consultancy Imaginvest. After much deliberation, with an exceptionally high standard of entries and intense level of competition in a number of categories, the judges’ shortlist for each award was published on the dedicated Park World Excellence Awards website, www.parkworldexcellenceawards.com.


The Awards is now set to culminate with the ceremony on Wednesday 26 September at Amsterdam’s W Hotel, where the industry will discover which parks, rides, attractions, shows and people the judges have chosen to be the inaugural winners.


In addition to the big reveal, the event is set to bring together professionals from across the sector for a premium evening of networking and celebration.
