TEA Asia Pacific July newsletter: Jennie Nevin's report on IAAPA Beijing, and more

Jennie Nevin
"Now in my 7th month as COO of the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) I was thrilled to help represent our organization in Beijing this year at the IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo (AAE)," writes Jennie Nevin.

"I managed our TEA Booth and helped host our TEA Party with Asia Pacific Division President, Chris Yoshii of AECOM, and his dedicated Board members who are pioneers in this major new frontier of the attractions industry... Our TEA/AECOM Theme Index was distributed in a Chinese-language version at AAE, and was eagerly received."

"The word from the media is that there are currently some 59 new theme/amusement parks at some stage of development  in China. The excitement in our industry is palpable. Our TEA gathering at AAE was a smashing success with over 320 attendees... TEA is forging relationships and helping to grow the industry in Asia, and we also help provide a home away from home – a landing place for our members who travel the world creating exciting new projects. Thanks to everyone who contributed in helping to make TEA’s presence in Beijing a success."
