Robert Kirby, Chairman of Village Roadshow Limited, and Steve Sanderson, Chairman of Sanderson Group formalized the agreement together with their international development teams at the show with a Champagne Celebration signing ceremony.
20 years in the making – Village Roadshow first hired Sanderson Group to complete works on the Warner Bros Movie World on the Gold Coast – and the two companies have collaborated on several projects around Australia including Sea World and Wet’n’Wild on the Gold Coast.
The partnership is actively engaged in securing contracts on projects with gross development value of US$1.8b, with a strong focus on the Asia market and in particular, China.
