Exclusive: The Everywhere Group set to launch crowdfund for more than ten new immersive experiences, projected to deliver £17m revenue in 2024: Immersive production company The Everywhere Group (TEG) is set to launch a crowdfund to help launch more than ten new immersive experiences, and is projected to deliver revenue of £17m in 2024. The business’s events arm, Immersive Everywhere, is behind The Great Gatsby – The Immersive Show in London, South Korea, Dublin and New York, as well as the likes of Doctor Who: Time Fracture, and Peaky Blinders: The Rise. It has more than ten new shows in the pipeline and is launching a crowdfunding campaign “imminently” to “drive these ventures forward”. The company said: “With significant growth potential nationally and internationally for the immersive and experience sector, TEG works with landlords that are keen to embrace these benefits to massively increase footfall and dwell time to these venues. TEG provide these sites and operators with ancillary revenue streams which encourages stronger working relationships than would have in traditional entertainment venues. Looking ahead, TEG forecasts significant revenue growth based on ten activations currently in the pipeline. The company's growth trajectory is projected to deliver revenue of £17m in 2024. Unique in its proposition and capitalising on all parts of the experience economy, TEG combines ticketing, marketing, sponsorship and merchandise to generate various streams of income at all stages of the production lifecycle. As well as these areas of the business, TEG has created a unique modus operandi, bringing its full 360-degree expertise to different spaces, away from traditional theatres.” It comes as TEG signs a deal with Hasbro to launch a new Peppa Pig-themed experience. Set to open in spring/summer of 2024, Peppa Pig: Surprise Party will offer an interactive theatrical storyline, a branded food and beverage offering and dedicated retail space. “We are thrilled and honoured to be partnering with Hasbro to create an immersive experience for one of the world’s best known and most loved brands,” said Mark Hurry, TEG’s joint chief executive. “By expanding beyond traditional theatre and venturing into diverse locations such as shopping centres and theme parks, we are revolutionising the way brands engage with their audiences and creating truly unforgettable experiences. The success we achieved in 2022 and the projected growth for the upcoming years are a testament to our dedication to delivering unparalleled entertainment.” Matt Proulx, vice president of location based entertainment at Hasbro, added: “TEG’s work in the live immersive entertainment space is truly impressive and we are confident they will bring a unique and fun experience to life for Peppa’s littlest fans and their families in her home market, the UK. With the brand’s 20th anniversary in 2024, Peppa Pig: Surprise Party is just one of the many ways we’re opening fan experiences and celebrating the phenomenon that is Peppa Pig.”
