The older I get, the more I hate anything fake. My strongest driver is a quest for authenticity Michel Linet-Frion Founder, Studio Concepts & Innovations


fter more than 30 years in the leisure and attractions industry working for Walt Disney Imagineering, Pierre & VacancesCenter Parcs, Grévin & Cie

and Compagnie des Alpes, architect, designer and concept innovator Michel Linet-Frion has launched his own global consultancy firm. Studio Concepts and Innovations provides consultancy and design services for eco friendly and storyline-led family leisure destinations and resorts. “I’ve been intensively involved in designing world class attractions that create long lasting emotions and memories for many years,” LinetFrion told Attractions Management. ”My main aim is to trigger imagination – I want to make people happy, to give them the opportunity to disconnect from their daily life and reconnect with those they’ve chosen to visit our destinations with. “Nature is part of my signature philosophy; we care for her, she cares for us.”


With his new venture, Linet-Frion says he will use his expertise to help clients create memorable and original experiences. “From the initial concept to the opening day, I can support developers at each stage of the process, providing the advice and expertise necessary to transform their visions and dreams into destinations,” he said. “I will make it simple for them, allowing them to focus on the big picture while I stay focused on the details.”
