Bahrain waterpark wins global acclaim
Manama, October 5, 2010
Wahooo! Waterpark Bahrain, a unit of Dubai-based Majid Al Futtaim Leisure, has been recognised in two categories by the World Waterpark Association, the highest international body for waterparks around the world.
The awards will be handed at the 2010 Wave Review Awards competition, to be held in San Antonio, Texas this month. The World Waterpark Association recognised Wahooo! as having the best ‘Email Campaign’ and top ‘Posters’ in the advertising and promotional categories.
“We are extremely proud to win the prestigious Wave Review Awards and to be recognised as the best in the industry by the World Waterpark Association. We feel doubly honoured to receive both these awards in our first year of operation,” said Shama Uchil, sales and marketing manager of Wahooo!
Judges selected Wahooo! from a total of 275 leisure entrants worldwide and were impressed by the creativity of the waterpark’s innovative, fun-filled marketing campaigns during 2010, a statement said.
“As Wahooo! is an indoor-outdoor park with temperature controlled pools this provided the management team with the challenge of how best to introduce the brand to the market and create awareness around it,” continued Uchil. “From the first day we launched our brand, we earned rave reviews for its name, the logo and its modern, fun look.”
“Since Eid the Wahooo! team has been enjoying attendance from thousands of guests and our figures have been higher than ever before. Receiving these two awards is a double celebration!” Uchil concluded.
Wahooo! will awarded at an awards ceremony, along with the other winning parks from around the world at the upcoming 30th Anniversary Symposium & Trade Show held in San Antonio, Texas from October 6 to 10. – TradeArabia News Service
