Oakland, California, USA — 17 January, 2018 — Leading technology consulting firm TEECOM has been named as major sponsor and curator of the 2018 TiLEzone London event. Hosted by the London Transport Museum on March 13th, the event is supported by the UK’s Department for International Trade and marks the 13th TiLEzone London and the 25th TiLE globally.
The TiLE (an abbreviation of Trends, Technology, Theming and Design in Leisure and Entertainment) annual event brings together professionals to learn about the operation, development and supply of venues and special events in the experience economy.
TEECOM’s Blair Parkin is chairperson and curator of the one-day conference. As a principal with Oakland, California-headquartered technology consultancy TEECOM, Blair leads the EMEA practice and the cultural sector worldwide. Based in Brighton, UK, Blair has spent more than thirty years working with technology in public spaces.
Speaking about TEECOM’s involvement, Blair Parkin said, “Each year, TiLEzone attendees are inspired by speakers presenting trends, technologies, and new ideas that can be used to advance attractions and museums, and to improve engagement with audiences.
“The 2018 TiLE promises to bring some exciting, challenging and fresh perspectives to the TiLE audience. TiLE has become synonymous with the founding of new museum and experience business relationships. We’re delighted to be working with the event and organisers.”
TiLEzone’s core theme of “Experience Economy” sees this year’s speaker topics including:
- The impact of the increasing convergence of performing arts, produced media and tourism.
- The “Extraordinary Evolution of the Experience Economy.”
- The creation and operation of transformative venues and how place-based experiences fare in the era of social media.
- A specific focus on the the global museum market.
- The growing trend of Immersive Media with the leading practitioners of large scale projects from around the world using case studies to illustrate best practice.
As well as leading this year’s TiLEzone, Blair is also currently working on the West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong, multiple pavilions for Expo 2020, Dubai, and the new National Museum of Jordan with the TEECOM EMEA team.
