SKYnext event, hosted by Skyline Attractions, returns to Orlando, Florida on September 13-14, 2024

Orlando, FL — Skyline Attractions is excited to announce the return of its annual SKYnext event on September 13-14, 2024, in Orlando, Florida. SKYnext is a professional networking event hosted by Skyline Attractions for aspiring engineers, managers, and other leaders in the themed entertainment industry.

Building on the momentum of previous years, SKYnext 2024 promises to be an unforgettable experience for young industry professionals with a passion for theme parks and the themed entertainment industry. Open to individuals from all majors and backgrounds, the event offers unparalleled opportunities for networking, learning, and professional development.

“We’re thrilled to bring SKYnext back to Orlando this September,” said Skyline Attractions Design Engineer Tyler Mullins. “SKYnext provides a phenomenal platform for emerging talent to connect with industry professionals, gain valuable insights, and forge lasting connections that can shape their careers. I attended SKYnext myself as a college student, and I’m so happy to see the event continue to benefit future theme park professionals.”

Past SKYnext events have included speakers, workshops, and behind-the-scenes tours of Orlando attractions, along with exciting evening activities. Details on specifics for SKYnext 2024 will be announced soon.

“Looking back at my network in the attractions industry, I can trace direct paths back to SKYnext for many of my closest connections,” M-Squared Designs Senior Mechanical Engineer Zach Jordan said. Jordan attended SKYnext as a student from Purdue University and has since played a critical role in the design and engineering of animatronics for several major theme park attractions. “I don’t think I’d be in the position I am without going to SKYnext, and I can’t recommend it enough!”

SKYnext 2024 will be held at the IAAPA World Headquarters, with generous sponsorship support from IAAPA. Sponsorship opportunities are still available, offering companies the chance to support the future of themed entertainment, enhance their visibility, and connect with the next generation of theme park leaders.
