CAVA Designwerks, specialists in developing media-based attractions to the themed entertainment industry, is establishing a strong presence in the Middle East.
CAVU has offices in the US, Canada and China. By expanding to Beirut, Abu Dhabi and Riyadh, the attractions provider will be able to work closely with clients in the MENA region.
Following a change in policy, movie theatres can now operate in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi government is also giving the entertainment industry a boost with the building of theme parks and FECs. Reports show that international tourism in Saudi Arabia is forecast to increase by 5.8% a year from 2018 to 2022.
CAVU aims to meet the needs of the expanding market by providing quality media-based attractions. As Peter Schnabel, CAVU Designwerks’ CEO said:
“As the investment into the amusement park industry grows across the Middle East, we at CAVU want to ensure that we offer a local presence during this exciting time of growth.”
Mark Stepanian, vice president of innovation and engineering at CAVU spoke of the attractions industry’s expansion in the Middle East.
“There is no doubt the amusement industry in the Middle East is growing, with more families looking for quality entertainment without needing to travel.
“By having a location that’s close to the expanding Saudi Arabia market, we are able to provide close support and align ourselves with our clients and their needs,” said Stepanian.
