20 November, 2023 / News

The recent edition of the IAAPA Expo in Orlando, United States, witnessed the impact generated by Public Access Lagoons™ projects, also known as PAL™ developments. In this event organized by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, considered the global epicenter of the entertainment industry, Crystal Lagoons was awarded the prestigious ‘IAAPA Brass Ring Best Exhibit Awards.’

The multinational’s booth was recognized for excellence in design, branding, product, and overall appeal. This award reflects the revolution of PAL™ projects in the entertainment industry, which mobilizes more than US$ 360 billion annually.

Crystal Lagoons not only showcased a new standard in urban entertainment but also solidified itself as a benchmark in the growth of the entertainment industry. PAL™ projects not only attract a large number of visitors but also enhance the profitability of various spaces, from theme parks to aquariums and shopping centers.

“The presence at IAAPA Expo confirms the entertainment value of PAL™ complexes, bringing idyllic beach life to any place with hundreds of entertainment activities, culture, and services. These developments attract many visitors and increase the profitability of entertainment parks, theme parks, aquatic parks, aquariums, zoos, malls, etc., generating an entertainment hub,” explains Ivan Manzur, Senior Vice President of Sales for Crystal Lagoons US Corp.

Nearly 40,000 executives, developers, and operators of theme parks, amusement parks, water parks, family entertainment centers, zoos, aquariums, and other projects from around the world attended this entertainment summit. The event is organized by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), a corporation with over 100 years of existence and nearly 7,000 members from more than 100 countries.

With more than 800 PAL™ projects in different stages of development and negotiation worldwide, the centerpiece of these complexes is their monumental crystalline lagoons and white sandy beaches, which can be accessed via ticketed entry. They are suitable for swimming and water sports, giving life to countless activities, including inflatable parks, trade shows, beach parties, concerts, flow boarding, yoga boards, water slides, cliff jumps, mapping shows, water light shows, and outdoor cinema, among many others.

In line with the environmental concerns of the entertainment industry, PAL™ projects are eco-friendly. An average one-hectare lagoon consumes 40% less water than a park or green area of the same size, 33 times less water than an 18-hole golf course, and can use any type of water. Crystal Lagoons® amenities consume only 2% of the energy required by conventional pool filtration systems and use up to 100 times less chemicals than a traditional swimming pool.

In addition, these developments allow a reduction of more than 40% in the carbon footprint (14 million tons of CO2 per year) of the tourism and transport industries by decreasing travel to coastal destinations by around 50%, a fact recognized by various international awards such as the Green Apple Award and Champion of Champions Awards.
