A leader in atmospheric lighting effects, Gantom Lighting and Controls, is partnering Christmas at Gaylord Palms for the third annual Leadership Symposium for Seasonal Attractions 2019.

ICE! transports guests into a winter wonderland featuring two-storey ice slides, shows, seasonal food, a concert series, Build-A-Bear Workshop, retail shops, snow tubing, real snow, and more.

Highlights include spectacular ice sculptures created from two million pounds of coloured ice by up to 60 artists brought over from Harbin, China.

The seasonal attraction will provide an inspirational backdrop for what Gantom describes as a ‘day of intense learning’:

“The need for seasonal attractions to differentiate is absolute, but the budget and timeframe can be suffocating. What if you could express the essence of your event quickly and efficiently to staff and customers? What if the creative team could work without management? The 2019 theme explores how attractions can communicate intent both internally and externally,” explains the company.

Speakers, workshop sessions, activities and networking

The Symposium will include speakers, workshop sessions, activities, and networking. During the workshop sessions, moderators will lead attendees through exercises based on the speakers and themes. Attendees use a workbook throughout the day; a great reference tool they can use to apply their knowledge when they get home.

“We’re so excited to welcome the Symposium to our resort,” confirmed Niko Nickolaou, Director of Special Events & Entertainment at Gaylord Palms. “Our team creates immersive events throughout the year, with ‘Christmas at Gaylord Palms’ being our grandest of all. We look forward to introducing our ‘endless entertainment’ resort experience to such a prestigious group from the world of themed entertainment.”

Tickets are limited to 150, to ensure a quality experience. Book now
