Jurassic World: The Exhibition has been crowned winner of ‘Best Visitor Experience 2022’ at the inaugural Access All Areas Conference & Awards held at multi-arts space EartH (Evolutionary Arts Hackney) on 12th January 2023. Celebrating the achievements of major live events throughout the UK across culture, sports, and music, the awards kickstarted the year with a discussion around the challenges and opportunities of the industry whilst recognising key industry success stories of 2022.
Shortlisted alongside nominees such as Isle of Wight Festival, BST Hyde Park, and Westival, Jurassic World: The Exhibition won the award following the experience’s incredible stint at the ExCeL London, outselling all experiences with over 315,000 ticket sales.
