What fascinated you about the Leisure & Attractions Industry and how did you get into it?
My wife and I grew up in the Unites States. We have the fondest memories of going to epic amusement parks as children with our parents, later we would frequent these parks with friends. We literally grew up going to famous amusement parks such as Universal Studios, Six Flags and Disneyworld. It was truly one of our happiest childhood memories as a family and being together. When we had our children we wanted to create something that gave that every lasting happy childhood memory to our kids but we wanted it to be more bespoke and focus on development of a the various stages of children.
What is your vision for the industry? How do you see it evolving?
I see the industry has tremendous potential despite the big l players that are now global….you no longer need to travel to America to experience Disney etc. I think there is still a great deal of experiences lacking In more defined verticals, virtual reality , artificial intelligence , smart gaming are all new factors that will help the industry evolve.
