The Faces of Orlando: ITEC Entertainment Corporation

ITEC Entertainment is proud to be based in Orlando, the theme park capital of the world and top tourist destination. And, we are equally as thrilled to be among the Faces of Orlando in this month's Orlando Magazine!
Legend has it that in order to bring a wizard to life, you have to apply the right mix of arts and sciences with a dose of spellbinding fascination and technical genius. At ITEC Entertainment's inception, in 1985, the commercial business of themed entertainment was still in its earliest stages. Drawing much of its principal talent and culture from Walt Disney Imagineering, ITEC pioneered a new era in the international themed entertainment industry.

Today, ITEC Entertainment has business relationships in over 25 countries and its work touches hundreds of millions of people around the world.

A pedigree of international client brands has helped ITEC Entertainment become the one-stop provider of choice for comprehensive entertainment solutions that include the design and production of projects spanning: theme parks; rides and shows; cultural attractions; resorts and mixed-use; themed dining; entertainment centers; and themed retail.

ITEC's role begins with the development of entire theme park master plans and carries through to the creation of rides and shows and on to the unique technologies that help to bring them to life.

Current projects include new park plans in Korea, China, Vietnam, Dubai and Norway and two recently opened attractions in Wuhan, China. ITEC also has a joint venture Company in Shanghai, China, currently manned by a number of full-time ITEC staff transferred from Orlando.

Here in Central Florida, ITEC Entertainment has maintained a longstanding relationship with Universal Studios, recently completing its 50th project for the entertainment provider.
