With blooloopLIVE just 2 days away we are pleased to announce that Sarah Roots, Vice President, Warner Bros. Studio Tours will join the Stategy session.
Kindly stepping up at short notice to replace Lincoln Clarke of the Historic Dockyards who could not attend, Sarah will be of great interest to our delegates as she brings enormous industry experience and runs a unique and highly successful new London attraction: Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.
So, though we have lost a Sixteenth Century warship, Henry 8th's Mary Rose, we gain a Wizard as Sarah joins 3 other industry leaders in the final sesssion, which is sponsored by Leading ticket and access control company Gateway Ticketing.
The others in the session are Jamie Christon (MD, Chester Zoo), Victoria Wallace (CEO, Leeds castle) and David Gibson, (MD, National Marine Aquarium).
Sarah Roots joined the Studio Tour in late 201, before construction started and has seen the project through from conception through to the Grand Opening in March 2012. Now in its third year, The Studio Tour has been an enormous success with ticket sell-outs, over 3 million visitors and 97% excellent or very good TripAdvisor reviews (out of some 10, 000).
After starting her career with the Tussauds Group, Sarah moved in 2000 to head up Operations for the National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. In 2003 she moved to the National Trust in the South East of England leading customer service and commercial operations across over 20 built properties and countryside sites, later taking the position of Director, Central Customer Services at the organisation’s Head Office. Sarah returned to Greenwich, becoming Director Communications, Marketing and Visitor Experience, on the Board of the National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory and The Queen’s House. She led communications and operations for a new museum wing, introduced charging at the Royal Observatory, and led the feasibility study for the famous Cutty Sark Clipper.
We are excited and pleased that Sarah will join what is already a great line up for our inaugural blooloopLIVE event!
