LONDON RESORT PARTNERS WITH PWC TO BUILD EUROPE’S NEXT BIG THEME PARK DUBBED ‘UK DISNEYLAND’
The London Resort has agreed a strategic partnership with PriceWaterhouseCooper (PwC) to aid its plan to create Europe’s next major theme park.
PwC has invested into the £2bn resort and is teaming up to build smart venue technology for the attraction.
London Resort CEO Pierre-Yves Gerbeau said: “To be the first theme park across Europe to be built from scratch in nearly 30 years, we need to work with the best.
“They don’t come much bigger or better than PwC and we are delighted to welcome them as a partner invested in the project.”
The theme park, nicknamed ‘UK Disneyland’, will offer 2,250 hotel rooms including 4 star Radisson suites and will be located just 17 minutes from London.
It is the first to be built from scratch in almost three decades and is set to be ranked among the top 10 in the world once completed.
PwC will help put together the technology masterplan for the resort, focused on delivering a world class physical and virtual entertainment experience for visitors.
The company will bring its experience in smart venue technologies, delivering and investing in state-of-the-art operational solutions that meet the London Resort’s environmental and social goals.
Marco Amitrano, head of clients and markets at PwC UK, said: “Obviously this is a significant project for London and the UK.
“Its vision for next generation entertainment is an exciting proposition – particularly at a time when changes to how we live and work, infrastructure spending, and sustainability initiatives are fuelling remarkable developments in technology.”
