blooloopLIVE at ISE 2018 is a half day conference on 9th Feb. in Amsterdam. It will showcase the creation and development of nighttime spectaculars at visitor attractions.
Tickets include entry to ISE2018 and can be booked here. (Please note there is a discount for AVIXA/CEDIA members.)
The platinum sponsor for the event is global technology company Barco. Barco designs and develops visualization solutions for a variety of selected professional markets. These include control rooms, visitor attractions, digital cinema, media & entertainment and simulation & VR (virtual reality).
Theme parks, musuems, waterparks, zoos and cultural and heritage attractions are increasingly looking to becomedestinations in themselves, rather than simple half or one day visits. To this end many are adding hotels and increasing their offering, meaning that their guests stay longer on the property and spend more money.
They are also adding spectacular evening events to the mix. These range from simple theatrical productions to huge extravanganzas, with state-of-the-art technology, video mapping and lasers creating unique and memorable shows and experiences.
