Magic Memories wins AMCHAM Award

8 November 2020

In the time of COVID-19, it takes resilient and innovative companies to not only survive but thrive!

Magic Memories was recognised this month for their resilience and success by the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) New Zealand. The award recognises those companies who have shown resilience, ingenuity, have re-pivoted, and have been successful in growing relationships/business between the USA and NZ this year.

There were a record number of entries and some of the key messages that came out of the entries:

  • There has been some outstanding innovation, resilience, perseverance, and tenacity shown during these unprecedented times.
  • The global playing field has been leveled and New Zealand is well placed to take advantage of it.
  • Enabling technologies are out there waiting for society to catch up .
  • New Zealand’s economy has moved from just exporting containers of goods to exporting our unique innovations.
  • Sustainability and climate change are creating a challenge and an opportunity.
  • The customer experience is absolutely everything.

Magic Memories is ecstatic to receive this award, particularly in challenging conditions in 2020.  Following a fall in revenues due to the mass closure of attractions around the world, Magic Memories reacted quickly to reduce outgoings while retaining core talent and IP enabled consistent progress on product development throughout Covid-19. Magic Memories then successfully bounced back from the impact of Covid-19, following USD $17m (NZD $25.5 m) round of funding, now placing Magic Memories as a clear leader in the global attractions industry.
