Local IP's might not even have a proper marketing team/franchising department to work out potential projects or collaboration in a professional and efficient way. (banners/attraction design submission experience/custom props/merchandises/ads...these involves a lot of people). I don't blame local IP's since they generally don't deal with many collaboration requests...so it could be winner if it works out properly.
    The local IP owners and Ocean Park don't need their own project designers. There are many companies out there that do the design work for you, all you have to do is tell them what IP you have, what you want to build and to what standard. They can do the rest. (Basically they do the same work as WDI.)

    There is in fact a whole industry. Most of them can be found through this website: http://www.inparkmagazine.com/

    From this Ocean Park funding episode, the loudest complaint locally is that the park seriously lack local favour. All the mainlanders have already given up on the park because of the huge and vastly superior Chimelong Zhuhai resort, and you want to go against the locals, too. Good luck with that.

      I thought the Panyu location near Guangzhou is suppose to be the best one.

        Then you should see the above link and see how much money they are putting into it. This is opening this year and the new hotel has already opened.

        How can Ocean Park compete with something like this?

          Struggling Ocean Park appoints new leadership

          Cash-strapped Ocean Park has named Ysanne Chan as the theme park's new chief executive, while Lau Ming-wai has been appointed the park's chairman.

          Chan is currently the park's chief financial officer and corporate secretary, while Lau is the park's deputy chairman.

          They will take over from outgoing CEO Matthias Li and chairman Leo Kung from Wednesday, with a tenure of a year.

          Li praised Chan as "an enlightened leader who is good at listening and accepts others’ ideas".

          In a statement, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Edward Yau said Lau had "profound commercial experience" and is an "eminently suitable" candidate to assume the new chairmanship.

          Yau praised Kung for his "high degree of commitment and dedication to leading Ocean Park in tackling different challenges in the past six years".

          Lau joined the board in July 2008 and served as the number two of the board since July 2014.

          Last month, he lobbied hard for Legco to approve a HK$5.4 billion lifeline from the government for Ocean Park to repay loans in order to save it from closing down.

          The park re-opened earlier this month following more than four months of forced closure due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

          ================================================== ================================================

          Lau Ming-Wai only has a one year term. I wonder what he wants to achieve during this time. Hopefully he is a good listener and at least appoint a proper CEO with theme park experience to take charge of the park after he and Ysanne Chan leave next year.
