KCC celebrates 20 years of unique entertainment design
Themed entertainment design company KCC Entertainment Design is set to celebrate its 20th birthday this month. The Belgian company was initially founded in 2000 with the aim of designing and creating karting entertainment centres.
CEO Yannick Maes, founder and owner of KCC Entertainment Design, said: “Our first contract was for a karting entertainment centre in Hong Kong followed by several locations in the USA. Quickly the ‘karting entertainment centres’ business got extended with other entertainment offerings. We designed and built our first Middle East karting entertainment centre in Jeddah, KSA – IN10SO is in the large shopping mall Serafi Mega Mall. The owner of the mall then invited us to design and build an indoor entertainment park in a different part of the mall. We took this opportunity, strengthened our team and designed and built, in a record time, our first family entertainment centre, Moon Toon.”
Pioneers of integrating fully themed, high-level entertainment parks into retail environments or as standalone destinations, some key KCC projects over the years have included Go Planet in Riga, Latvia; Tekzone in Avenues Mall, Kuwait; Angry Birds in Doha Festival City, Qatar and Smurfs Theme Park in Shanghai, China.
“While everyone’s world is becoming more and more digitalized and we spend a great amount of time online, we clearly see that people still love creating real memories and continuously look for new place to gather, socialize and have fun,” Maes continued.
“I look forward seeing KCC address this continuous search for unique social entertainment locations and to see KCC remain a driver and pioneer in the development of these new entertainment locations in the next years.”
