Holovis has been ranked as the ninth fastest growing SME for international sales in the UK by the Sunday Times Export Track.
Fast Track is a leading research and events company that has created a network of the UK’s top-performing private companies through its rankings in The Sunday Times as The Sunday Times Export Track, from the fastest-growing to the biggest. Holovis had a record breaking year in 2016 delivering transforming, immersive experiences to clients across the globe, including opening some of the most original and memorable media based attractions, all designed and built in the UK.
Delivering Award Winning Attractions
The company’s Entertainment Division has delivered award winning attractions in Europe and China. These included a world-first Augmented Reality (AR) experience connecting guests across a whole theme park for Cedar Fair in the USA launched in the summer 2016. This won a prestigious IAAPA Brass Ring Award at the global trade convention in November last year.
Holovis also innovates its own design processes. This facilitates the delivery of faster, more accurate solutions by using RideView™, its proprietary visualisation software suite. This therefore brings whole site masterplans and individual attractions to life, in a virtual reality, 1:1 scale, 3D environment. This allows multidisciplinary teams to explore the virtual world in detailed real-time. They will see it exactly as the finished installation will look and operate. All this is before any actual expensive building begins.
Stuart Hetherington, CEO says, “This is a phenomenal achievement and real evidence of our growing international reputation. Our ambition has never been to be the biggest, but to be the best. We’ve always put the customer at the heart of what we do and that is something that will never change. It’s that focus on innovation, quality and service that is the real engine of our growth. 2017 will be just as exciting for us. The planned opening of new Innovation Centres in both London and Florida will enable us to get even closer to our clients.”
