“The 2014 edition represents the 9th time that TEA and AECOM have joined forces on this annual study. It is an essential resource for charting growth, increasing awareness, and celebrating excellence in the visitor attractions industry.”

The TEA/AECOM Theme Index and Museum Index is the definitive global attendance study by the economics practice at AECOM. It identifies industry trends and calendar-year visitation numbers for theme parks, water parks, museums and the top theme park group operators.
“The industry continued its post-recession attendance growth at a healthy rate of 4 percent for the top theme parks globally,” said John Robinett, AECOM senior vice president, economics, Americas. “That growth reflects a post-recession rebound in all regions: Europe at 3 percent, the Americas at 2 percent and Asia at 5 percent.”
Attendance growth at the top museums worldwide came in at just under 2 percent.
In theme parks and waterparks, worldwide trends to watch include Asia growth, Middle East resurgence, resort-style development, and the initiatives of the large, established operators.
A Chinese language print edition of the TEA/AECOM 2014 Theme Index and Museum Index will be available at the IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo in Hong Kong June 16-19.
