The annual Entertainment Designer Forum is just two weeks away, once again raising money for a fantastic charity while providing fans and creative hopefuls a way to meet and hear from some of the leading talent in the themed entertainment industry.
Since its debut eight years ago, the Entertainment Designer Forum has raised more than $70,000 for the American Cancer Society through ticket sales and a silent auction featuring prized theme park goodies.
The event will take place on Friday, March 3 at the Orlando Repertory Theatre and feature two panel discussions in which “design experts discuss their styles & philosophies designing theme parks.”
Attending this event is practically mandatory for theme park fans, as a fantastic way to get to know the minds behind your favorite attractions.
The 6:30pm session will feature Women in the Entertainment Industry, featuring talent from Walt Disney Imagineering, Universal Creative, Busch Gardens Tampa, Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, Orlando Fringe, and beyond: Joyce Arbucias, R.K. Little Kelly, Robbi Lepre, Lisa Enos Smith, Cindy White, and Sarah Elger.
The second panel at 9:00pm will include a Disney illustrator, directors of technology at Disney and Universal, as well as creative directors: Harc “Flounder” Hurst, Chuck Fawcett, Lon Smart, Kenn Hardy, Tom Geraghty, and T.J. Mannarino.
This year’s silent auction contains a variety of Halloween Horror Nights memorabilia along with Disney collectibles and other experiences. Here’s a sampling:
