Good deeds quietly done

by Liz Terry

When illness strikes, it’s normality which suffers, along with time with loved ones and family fun. But there are charities working hard to mend this gap, by offering seriously ill children and adults the opportunity for days out, with all the care they need to make these the best they can be.

High-tech Place-Shifting is a new dimension for attractions to explore

by Liz Terry

New technology is giving us the power to Place-Shift experiences to create on-demand, immersive attractions in any location. Combining live streaming, haptics, AR and virtual reality with authentic artefacts and storytelling, this thinking will open up huge new markets for growth. [more...]

Staying ahead

by Liz Terry

After decades of crazy inventions being the stuff of sci-fi, this year marks the point where they hit the mainstream, with affordable tech coming to market in everything from VR to drones, robots and augmented reality. We need to grab it with both hands, figure it out and make it our own. [more...]

Snakes & Ladders

by Liz Terry

There’s a bouncy feel to the latest TEA/AECOM Theme and Museum Index (Attractions Management 2015 issue 3 page 42) which reports healthy growth in attendances across attractions sectors from museums to theme and water parks. AECOM, which did the research, says the top 25 amusement/theme parks grew attendances by 4.1 per cent in 2014, the top 20 waterparks by 2.8 per cent and the top 20 museums by 1.6 per cent. Increases were recorded on all continents. [more...]

Preservation

by Liz Terry

It’s been a challenging time for the heritage sector. Widespread destruction of temples and other ancient monuments has been reported in Kathmandu following the Nepal earthquake, along with huge loss of life. [more...]

9/11

by Liz Terry

Rarely has one moment in time so defined an age and a place as Ground Zero, New York City on September 11 2001. It’s almost impossible to imagine how daunting the task appeared when the first meeting was called to discuss the development of a lasting memorial on the site. [more...]

Access for all

by Liz Terry

In Attractions Management 2014 issue 4 we ask our panel of experts how attractions can better cater for people with disabilities – how they can engage with them and enable them to enjoy the enhanced quality of life that comes from great days out with friends and family (see page 28). [more...]

Peace

by Liz Terry

The cover of the latest issue of Leisure Management shows Kate Middleton planting a poppy in the moat of the Tower of London, as part of an art installation called Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. [more...]

Here comes China

by Liz Terry

Speaking at the opening of the recent IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo in Beijing, Paul Noland, president and CEO of IAAPA, said the Chinese market is the fastest growing in the world, with at least 59 theme parks under development, probably more. [more...]

Attractions Management magazine launches AM2 global news magazine and invites the industry to join in conversation

by Liz Terry

The New Philanthropists

by Liz Terry

The majority of visitor attractions rely in part on donations to meet the cost of investment, so wooing benefactors and donors is part of the process. As more tech millionaires are made, will attractions which focus on tech-related topics find it easier to fundraise? [more...]

Creating wealth

by Liz Terry

In Attractions Management 2014 issue 1 we pause to take a special, in-depth look at Merlin Entertainments, following its successful floatation on the London Stock Exchange in November last year (page 30). Great companies generate whole eco-systems around themselves, with employees and their families, shareholders, investors, suppliers and stakeholders all benefiting from the wealth, energy and opportunity they create. A look at the numbers gives clues to the extent of Merlin's. [more...]

Advance ticketing

by Liz Terry

Pretty much every leisure time activity we undertake involves booking in advance – it’s a fundamental principle of the operation of restaurants and hotels, theatres, healthclubs and sports events. It enables yield optimisation, staff allocation, crowd control and budgeting and it limits fraud. [more...]

Embracing technology

by Liz Terry

Technology's giving the attractions industry the edge in endless thrilling ways, granting more creative flexibility, enabling cost reductions and greater profitability and leading to the creation of more compelling experiences. [more...]

Authenticity and human engagement

by Liz Terry

Last year I took a trip to the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace in London to see Leonardo, Anatomist, an exhibition of the work of Leonardo da Vinci and the largest ever of his studies of the human body. [more...]

Dealing with protests

by Liz Terry

In the last few months, I've encountered protestors camping outside a number of attractions, lobbying visitors in the queue lines to try to persuade them to boycott the attractions because of a specific sponsorship tie-up. [more...]
