Themed resort designer Katapult is preparing to showcase its latest projects at a major international trade exhibition later this month.

At this year’s IAAPA Europe Expo in Vienna, which takes place from 26 to 28 September, the Derby firm will lift the lid on its latest projects, which show the breadth of its expertise.

For more than a decade, the team at Katapult has worked on both new-build and existing themed resort projects, helping to bring a magical guest experience to destinations around the world.

As well as designing memorable hotel guest suites, the team has also worked to create inclusive water parks, themed restaurants, play areas and communal spaces across themed resorts and villages.

Led by former Disney imagineer Andy Sinclair-Harris, the design team is currently working on a range of new IP-based themed resort design projects.

Speaking about the live projects in the studio, Katapult chief executive and co-founder Dawn Foote said: “The confidential resort projects we’re working on are incredibly exciting.

“For us, our clients, and of course the future guests, these resorts will create a game changing experience that will set the tone for future resorts.

“We’ve built a team capable of delivering resort projects, alongside the amazing work we do for theme parks, family entertainment centres and visitor attractions worldwide.”

While in Vienna, Katapult will be showcasing some of the recently completed themed attraction projects – including a theme park expansion project with UK attraction, ROARR!.

The new park expansion features the theme park’s first ever rides.

It will also share further details of its collaboration with Aardman Studios on the attraction concept, The World of Aardman.

The turnkey concept, launched at IAAPA Asia, features a studio experience, interactive elements, themed cafe, experiential retail and memory making opportunities with guest’s favourite characters – including Morph, Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.

Vienna will also be a chance for Katapult to discuss its recent project with The LEGO Group and Merlin Entertainments.

LEGO Creative Club will become a brand-new area across new openings globally, after the successful launch at the pilot location in Brussels.
