Leased Experiences

Where Exhibits Don’t Exist

Announcing Leased Experience Offerings!

The only turn-key solution that can fabricate, install and operate!

 
RWS is excited to announce the addition of its Leased Experiences division that encourages guest engagement through immersive activations.

 
As the leader in creating custom, branded experiences, RWS is excited to partner with leading brands from around the world to bring to life some of the most recognizable character and entertainment properties.

 
With its leased experience model, RWS is providing these activations at cost-affordable prices. Many times, the licensing fee does not allow destinations to support branded activations, but now they can.

 
Our immersive designs, encourage play, guest engagement and fun. They are designed to be scalable and flexible in nature to fit any property need and space. And they are a proven success to drive foot-traffic and provide a return on investment. RWS also works with the property to develop unique ROI opportunities to marry food, beverage and merchandise to maximize the investment, increase the revenue and create a truly immersive experience.

 
While there are companies out there that provide exhibits… they install them and they leave it to you to operate and often times call us to provide the experiential activations. We have that covered to. Our experiences come with a turn-key solution. We work with the brand. We provide the experience and we operate the experience.

 
For more information on activating your space with an experience, please contact Senior Director, Business Development, Kevin Kreczko at [email protected]. And if you are interested in working with a brand and developing something unique – we can help you with that as well.
