A whirlwind year – and multiple milestones for the TEA TEA president Christine Kerr, BaAM Productions Hello to my TEA friends and colleagues from around the world. It has been a whirlwind year, and we have accomplished so much. I am struck by the incredible number of volunteer hours contributed by TEA members to help keep this association moving forward. Although other non-profit organizations may be able to quantify their volunteer contribution, the work of our volunteers is so varied and all-encompassing, I can’t imagine how we would tally up all the hours. A huge “thank you” to all of you. In April 2013, we introduced a new logo for the association that clearly represents the international nature of our membership and our work. In June 2013, we launched our Asia Pacific board, a result of the significant activity taking place in this region of the world. We passed a major membership milestone in late summer and now count more than 1,000 companies and individuals as part of the TEA family. Growth of our NextGen initiative is directly impacting the training, development and career opportunities for the next generation of creators and doers who will define (and re-define!) our industry. If you have not hired someone under the age of 25 in the past year, you are missing out on the opportunity to shape the future of your own business and our industry..... In December 2013, we reach a bittersweet crossroads for our association, with the retirement of our Executive Director, Gene Jeffers, whose dedicated service, contributions and stewardship over the past 12 years are simply huge. We honor and thank Gene - and we wish him a meaningful and fulfilling next chapter in his life. Gene’s substantial work provided much of the basis from which we will continue moving toward our strategic vision for the TEA. Part of TEA’s own next chapter is the introduction of a new Chief Operating Officer, Jennifer Nevin, whose appointment came after an extensive search. Our business community had the opportunity to first meet Jennifer in November at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando. I look forward to working with her and leveraging the fresh perspective that she brings to the TEA. This change in title for our most senior paid staff member reflects a shift in the structure of TEA that we believe will allow us to better serve our members. Finally, in 2014 we will welcome a new website. Already in development, this key tool will be the communication, business and marketing hub that streamlines operations and provides the level of member services we expect. Jennifer Nevin

Incoming TEA COO

Thank you to all of my friends and colleagues. I look forward to working with all of you through the next year.

A Last Note to the TEA Family Gene Jeffers, TEA Executive Director 2001-2012 For more than 20 years, the TEA has been helping to build relationships and strengthen the increasingly important themed entertainment and experience design industry worldwide. With our new Asia Pacific Division added to the existing Divisions - Eastern, Europe & Middle East, and Western - the international nature of our alliance is significantly enhanced, in the composition of our membership as well as the diversity of our activities and events. During its lifetime, the TEA has relied on literally hundreds of volunteers working on boards, committees and special events. Tirelessly manning networking socials, organizing fascinating behind-the-scenes tours, producing conferences and awards galas, your TEA volunteers have made the TEA possible. For the past 12 years, I’ve been privileged to work with many of those volunteers as we have grown the organization to nearly 1,000 members worldwide, have expanded the association’s areas of activities to include major new conferences such as the Summit and SATE, enlarged the European Division to include the Middle East, added a division to represent the Asia Pacific region, reached out to the Academic and NextGen worlds to include them in the TEA family, and more. TEA Divisions are hosting more events than ever all over the planet, helping to increase the value of membership and raise the standards of the industry. Again: very few of these improvements would have happened without a dedicated cadre of volunteers, and I thank each and every one of them for their support and energy. Also, a very great thank-you to one of the most dedicated staffs in the world - who have always done far more than required, have always extended their time and effort to provide the best possible service they can to the organization over the past 12 years. Specifically, I wish to thank Ann Gallagher, Raina Ross, Carole Mumford, Brian Szaks, Stefanie Cosman, and our current full- and part-time staff of Kathy Oliver, Doreen Fonsbenner, Annika Oetken and Judy Rubin. Their efforts on behalf of the membership cannot be overstated and should not be overlooked. Finally, a short note about Jennifer Nevin, your new COO. I have come to know a bit about her and enjoy her spirit and presence as we have worked on a smooth transition to best ensure the future of the organization. She is the right person at the right time to continue to elevate the organization, its members and benefits. With her experience and energy, TEA does indeed have a bright, exciting future ahead! Thank you again for giving me the privilege to work with so many of you! It has been a blast! Gene Jeffers, TEA Fan

An industry like no other by Judith Rubin, TEA publications/PR/social media Recipient of the 2013 TEA Service Award Thank you, TEA and thank you, themed entertainment industry, for giving me what so far has been a most fulfilling career as a journalist, publicist, editor, blogger and social media strategist. An industry friend once told me, “What you do is like CSI: ‘what happened here?’ I go in after a project is finished and I interrogate people – the polite term is “interview” - and try to tell the story of how the project came together and how the team interacted. Of course, there are usually a few details I can’t put into the story. It’s as much like Rashomon as it is like CSI. But, essentially, I deal in appreciation – helping others to get the credit and appreciation they deserve for their contributions to the Experience Industry. And that’s why I have always enjoyed my work for TEA – because the organization is all about collaboration and appreciation. And that’s why this column isn’t about me - it’s about you, and the industry. This Annual Directory is your key to the members of an industry that even now is not fully appreciated, but it’s the great and never ending work of the TEA to improve the situation, and every year, TEA makes incredible strides. Through distribution at international trade events such as those organized by IAAPA and AAM throughout the course of the year, this book is one of the ways TEA reaches out to the market sectors that our membership serves. The Annual Directory gains further exposure for TEA and TEA members through its publication as a virtual issue. Please also visit www.teaconnect.org to see the online version, which is continually updated and has additional details. Appreciation for all! This is the time to appreciate Gene Jeffers, TEA’s former executive director who is retiring in late 2013. I will always treasure the time I spent working with Gene. I am indebted to his guidance, his complete commitment to his work; his clear-sighted, level-headed approach, his intelligence and his readiness to take on whatever is necessary to take on - and a thousand other good qualities, in addition to his friendship. It has been a privilege to be a core TEA staffer for so many years, and working with Gene has made it specially enjoyable and enriching. I will miss his presence, even as, “inch by inch,” (to quote Gene’s favorite phrase) TEA advances into the future. Speaking of TEA’s future, we all look forward to TEA’s new achievements for the industry, as it moves into its 22nd year under the direction of new COO Jennifer Nevin.

TEA’s NextGen Initiative helps students find their way into the attractions industry By TEA NextGen Committee member Shirley Saldamarco of the Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Center faculty What do you get when you combine creators of compelling places and experiences worldwide with students and young professionals eager to engage and grow in the themed entertainment industry? The answer is - an amazing connection! The Themed Entertainment Association Next Generation Initiative (Next Gen) is working to help cultivate and train the next generation of the Experience Design community – an essential resource for students and recent grads to participate in TEA events and to help jump start their careers. (Information about discounted TEA NextGen membership for qualifying students and recent grads, as well as academics can be found at www.teaconnect.org.) As part of NextGen, TEA volunteer members create and facilitate a wide variety of events in locations all over the world. These events include networking events, educational seminars and behind-the-scenes tours. NextGen members are encouraged to attend these events to learn the people, companies and projects of the industry, and improve their own professional skills. Our facility, Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) organized the first live TEA Experience Café at a university. The event had a profound impact on our students. They appreciated the one-on-one opportunity to show their portfolios and get direct feedback from industry professionals. They were amazed at how approachable, down-to-earth and supportive everyone was. They said the sessions helped them discover opportunities in the themed entertainment industry for people like themselves with such diverse backgrounds in music, arts management and cruise ships. Ricardo Merchan, an ETC alum and NextGen member, said, “I could not imagine all the great possibilities this industry has to develop a career. TEA’s NextGen gives me the opportunity to learn about amazing projects right from their creators while making direct connections with them that will help me succeed in my career.” Another major focus of NextGen is to provide students with opportunities to actively participants in TEA events. At TEA’s annual SATE conference (SATE stands for Storytelling, Architecture, Technology, Experience), Mk Haley of Disney Research, curated videos submitted by students, offering everything from robotic stage actors to RFID-reactive, multi-colored LED sculptures. It was inspiring to see the work being done by students and a terrific opportunity for them to have that work seen by industry leaders. Paul Navarro, an ETC student, described his experience at SATE ‘13 as “an opportunity to meet people; to put human faces to the names of industry veterans; to see projects that were a sneak peek into the future of entertainment.”

Through partnerships with industry associations and some of the major employers, we’re definitely growing the stature and membership of TEA NextGen membership – and we’re working to actively spread the word. You can find TEA NextGen info on the TEA website (www.teaconnect.org) and also a number of social media portals. NextGen will continue to have a presence at TEA gatherings in the foreseeable future and industry professionals within TEA are encouraged to get involved. Kile Ozier, immediate past chair of the NextGen committee, said, “the committee’s impact on the sheer number of NextGen members has been significant, especially in the US and Europe.” In October 2013, TEA welcomed the current NextGen chair, Clara Rice of Jack Rouse Associates.

Brand Refresh Underway for the TEA Honoring Our Past As We Push Ahead Toward the Future By Dale Sprague, TEA Marketing & Communications Chairman, President, Canyon Creative You may have noticed some recent changes to the TEA brand. Maybe you spotted the new design of the TEA Connect ezine? Or, perhaps you’re seeing the new TEA logo for the first time on the front of this directory? This is all part of a much bigger plan created by the Marketing & Communications Committee to refresh and revitalize the TEA brand image. The reasons for undertaking this transformation are many and our motivations simple. We realized that, as the TEA grows internationally, we need to build a more compelling, focused brand image – one that helps tell our story as a global force in the themed entertainment industry and better reflects the diversity and expertise of our organization’s membership base.

2013

2005

Everyone knows a brand is far more than just a logo. But that’s where we started the metamorphosis. Using the previous logos as inspiration, we created a simplified version that features a contemporary compass/ globe icon. All new print and digital marketing and advertising will have a clean, fresh look and the new logo incorporated into the design. Now, we’re working on a complete overhaul of the website www.teaconnect.org. The enhanced site is being designed and programmed by Liz Terry, Tim Nash and the team at Leisure Media, and will be our primary marketing tool, a member communication center, and a business hub for the TEA. The fully integrated site will be user friendly, information packed, and loaded with new features, including expanded, searchable/sharable member profiles, a box office for events worldwide, a global events calendar, a blog, social media links, a members-only area, and more. The back-end content management system will be easy to use for those who will be updating the site, allowing for seamless addition of new information. The expected launch for the website is Q3 2014. We will also be rolling out new email and print marketing pieces, membership guide, NextGen presentation, corporate stationery, business cards, event banners, trade show booth, and other collateral. A brand style book will provide guidelines for how to represent ourselves to our members, the general public and media. This includes usage rules for the logo, fonts, color choices, photos, and other branding guidelines necessary to maintain brand consistency. Everything we’re doing is methodically designed to complement the big picture, to reposition ourselves in the industry and enhance awareness of the Themed Entertainment Association around the world. By creating a consistent brand and relevant voice for our messages, we will be able to share our vision in a more unified way and inject new vitality into the organization. 2014 TEA DIRECTORY

THE TEA STORY Over 20 years ago, a small group of visionaries came together to form the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). Their goal was to provide a collective voice to the growing number of entrepreneurial companies working in the themed entertainment industry. Over the years, it has become an internationally recognized association representing an extraordinary collective of talented companies and individuals dedicated to envisioning, designing, producing and operating the best in compelling places and experiences worldwide. TEA was born as a non-profit alliance to deliver continuing benefit to an industry we all love and care about deeply. It has grown from a 40-member regional association of vendors to a globally recognized trade alliance with four divisions and over 900 member companies representing over 8,000 people worldwide. TEA members have been contributing to family attractions since the advent of Disneyland in 1955. The TEA is honored to enjoy strong, long-term, worldwide relationships and support from major operators and developers such as Herschend Family Entertainment, The Walt Disney Company, NBC Universal, Merlin Entertainment Group, Le Grand Parc Puy du Fou, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, Europa Park, Parc du Futuroscope, and many others.

Los Robles Ave. #300 Pasadena CA 91101 USA Founded in Altadena, California in 1963, Charles Pankow’s vision for his new company was shaped on the fundamental belief: Because the builder controls the scope, quality, schedule and cost of a project,they are in the best position to help the owner know these factors in advance. This is the basic principle of “Thinking Beyond the Building,” established from the outset. To Charles J. Pankow, the concept of understanding the owner’s goals and needs before even beginning a design made complete sense. When a client had a problem getting something built, they called Charles Pankow. Where other contractors would walk away, it was his nature to jump in and figure it out. “It can’t be built” was music to his ears

jmetz@andrew.cmu.edu +1 412 268-9752 CMU-ETC 5305 700 Technology Dr. Pittsburgh PA 15219 USA The Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) at Carnegie Mellon University offers a two-year Masters of Entertainment Technology degree, jointly conferred by Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Fine Arts and School of Computer Science. Carnegie Mellon is relatively unique among U.S. Universities in being able to offer this kind of degree, as we have both top-quality fine arts and top-quality technology programs. The high concept behind both the Center and the Masters program is to have technologists and fine artists work together on projects that produce artifacts that are intended to entertain, inform, inspire, or otherwise affect an audience/guest/

player/participant. Because the larger challenge we face in authoring in new media is bringing together different disciplines, our degree program is driven by trying to do this most effectively. The ETC does not turn artists into technologists, or vice-versa. While some students will be able to achieve mastery in both areas, it is not our intent to have our students master ‘the other side.’ Instead, we intend for a typical student in this program to enter with mastery or training in a specific area and spend his or her two years at Carnegie Mellon learning the vocabulary, values, and working patterns of the other culture. This learning will be evidenced by their ability to work effectively with those who are expert in it.

of volunteers who bonded with the common goal of enhancing the Zoo’s services and providing financial support for the needs of the animals. The organization received official tax-exempt status in September 1975, and the Friends of Santa Ana Zoo was born. The organization’s first fundraising effort was the installation of the farm feed machines. Over the following years, FOSAZ took on added responsibilities at the Zoo. The Friends began to coordinate and sponsor Zoo special events, manage the Zoo gift shop, manage the membership and adoption programs, provide public relations and marketing for the Zoo, manage the Zoo’s website, and raise funds for Zoo improvements and animal acquisitions. They also brought in the Zoo’s Train Ride “Zoofari Express” and the Conservation Carrousel. The Friends have raised and provided funding for Amazon’s Edge, the $4.5 million dollar Crean Family Children’s Farm, the Colors of the Amazon Aviary, the $1.2 million dollar Tierra de las Pampas Exhibit, and raised the roof on a variety of primate exhibits. The Friends also fund items that are not included in the City budget such as tree-trimming, medical equipment, staff development and animal enrichment materials. Through the above fundraising efforts, Friends of Santa Ana Zoo has been able to support and improve the Zoo for over 40 years.
