There is much to learn in the rapidly growing and fast changing active entertainment industry, and we’ve been talking to some of our clients and partners about what they’ve grasped so far.
This week, we interviewed Leo Neophytou, who runs our furthest from home Funtopia center, located at Tunzafun Xtreme in Australia. Find out what Leo has to say about operating a family entertainment center below.
Looking at the fast speed our industry is growing and changing, we’ve decided to start a talk with our clients and partners on the lessons learned on the way and the upcoming future.
The first on the list is our partner company - Adventure Facility Concepts & Management (AFCM). We often joke that if it was on Facebook to decide our relationship with AFCM, it seems it best fits into the “open relationship” status. Why open? AFCM was established in 2013 as a separate entity under the Walltopia family with very distinctive purpose - to excel at operations of adventure centers. They stepped on our most recognized adventure product - the Fun Walls and turned it into a successful franchise model.
Walltopia Adventure has officially established a US branch of the company in the United States, and appointed outdoor enthusiast, Ivaylo Sotirov, as CEO.
Ivaylo has over 12 years of experience in the Amusement business. He first entered the industry by joining the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk as a ride operator. His enthusiasm for adventure didn’t stop there. Ivaylo quickly became involved with the management of a leading manufacturing company that is a major supplier in the Amusement industry, and grew from Junior Accountant, to Financial Controller, to CFO. Throughout the years, Ivaylo demonstrated continued leadership in his organization, and commitment to professional training and talent development. As CEO of Walltopia Adventure USA, Ivaylo has big ambitions for increasing the presence of the company’s products on the US market. He believes constant innovation is a key to success in any industry, especially in Amusement.
“I have known Ivaylo for 11 years and I am confident that he is the right fit for us. I surely set the bar high for him - I am determined to make Walltopia Adventure a reflection of Walltopia Climbing in terms of market share and secure our leading position in the industry, both in the USA and worldwide,” said Walltopia CEO, Ivaylo Penchev, on the account of the new head of Walltopia Adventure USA.
The world’s biggest property market is taking place in Cannes next month and shopping mall owners, developers and operators will be looking for new and alternative ways to stay ahead of online shopping businesses. And this is where we step in. Experiences are what brings visitors back to shopping malls again and again and it is no mystery why retail facilities are dedicating bigger areas to entertainment.
How is this achieved? Join us at booth P-1.G25 at MIPIM and we will tell you all about Active Entertainment. Our open presentation “The Game Changer in Retailtainment: What we’ve Learned from over 100 Active Entertainment Projects” will give you deeper insights into high-quality and profitable adventure zones and their benefits. It will be held on Wednesday, March 15th at 11:30.
