Hi everyone, Bryan here….
Winter is coming in a big way in the next year. HBO has set up a giant exhibition of their flagship show Game of Thrones, which is a brand new interactive exhibition where fans of the show can enter the Seven Kingdoms and get an up close and personal look at the props, costumes, and sets from the show. This new fun exhibition will be highly interactive and span 10,000 square feet of space. This will be a worldwide tour that will kick off in Europe later this year. All the dates and cities will be announced very soon. Below are some of the activities and sets you’ll be able to see and interact with.
Featuring a unique mix of immersive environments, interactives, and multimedia content, visitors will experience the mythical lands of Westeros and Essos and relive the trials and tribulations of the series’ nobles and common folk alike who struggle for survival in the shadow of the Iron Throne.
In anticipation of the launch of the exhibition later this year, GES’ creative team will work closely with HBO to create diverse environments from Westeros and Essos and to design an exhibition as exciting as the show itself. Spanning the Seven Kingdoms from King’s Landing to the land Beyond the Wall and across the Narrow Sea, GAME OF THRONES: THE TOURING EXHIBITION will allow fans worldwide to experience the craftsmanship and artistry of the GAME OF THRONES production up close in the largest public display to date.
- The wintry landscapes of the North, the tree-lined pathway of the King’s Road, and the regal settings of King’s Landing.
- The conquered city of Meereen with its garrisons of Unsullied warriors and the loyalists of House Targaryen.
- Iconic settings like the mysterious House of Black and White, the home of the Night’s Watch: Castle Black; and the frozen lands Beyond the Wall.
- The show stopping centerpiece of the iconic Iron Throne Room, where visitors can gaze upon the Westerosi seat of power in all its foreboding glory.
“GAME OF THRONES has truly become a worldwide phenomenon, with fans avidly watching the show throughout all corners of the globe,” said Jeff Peters, Director, Global Licensing, HBO. “Based on the stellar work GES has done with previous entertainment partners, we think this exhibition is going to be something fans will love, regardless of which part of the world they call home, and we’re excited to give them the opportunity to visit and celebrate the incredible craftsmanship of the talented GAME OF THRONES production team.”
“GES is thrilled to partner with HBO to bring the craftsmanship and artistry of GAME OF THRONES to fans. We are committed to giving fans worldwide the opportunity to experience some of their favorite elements from the show firsthand while experiencing the world of Game of Thrones unlike ever before,” said Eddie Newquist, Chief Creative Officer and EVP, GES Events.
“The innovative storytelling of GAME OF THRONES has been a cultural touchpoint since its premiere,” said Steve Moster, president of GES and president and CEO of Viad. “We are excited to bring this exhilarating world to life to fans around the globe.”
