GEOFF BENHAM

新濠博亚娱乐 创意总监

Geoff于2006年加入新濠博亚娱乐有限公司,是该合资公司的第一批员工之一。如今,新濠博亚娱乐已成为该地区领先的世界级开发商和运营商,并成功打造了全方位综合性娱乐胜地。1995–1997年,Geoff担任皇冠赌场获奖季的“财富”节目执行制作人,该节目在墨尔本产业中央的中庭空间举办。这一首创性节目至今仍然每天博得众多观众的喝彩,这也标志着Geoff与皇冠之间结成了持久而成功的商业友谊。由于这一关系,皇冠和新濠准备联合在澳门开发“梦想之城”娱乐项目时,皇冠任命Geoff指挥这一“特殊效果景点”,以便将这一产业打造成世界领先的娱乐场所体验地。

作为创意总监,Geoff负责打造了多处获得国际奖项的景点,如“龙宝藏”节目、水底美人鱼,以及最近为新濠天地在澳门打造的SOHO。他还将很快完成马尼拉新濠天地的“秘密”新景点的工作,该景点计划在今年晚些时候开放。目前,他正带领团队为新濠博亚娱乐在澳门的最新开发项目“Studio City”开发各种非博彩类景点和一些惊喜的特色项目,该项目将于2015年开放。

1980年代初,Geoff在总部位于科罗拉多州丹佛市的AIRCOA工作,从而开始了他在传统酒店开发业的职业生涯,之后,他于1988年底加入卢卡斯电影公司(Lucasfilm),帮助他们创立了两家公司: Skywalker Development Company——特效驱动的城市娱乐中心概念的开发者,和LucasArts Attractions——卢卡斯电影帝国的设计咨询部门。在卢卡斯电影公司,Geoff开始将各种形式的传统娱乐与酒店和零售地产项目结合起来。后来,Geoff创办了自己的公司,开始与许多世界领先的房地产开发商和娱乐公司合作,打造各种规模和匪夷所思的独特“娱乐场所营造项目”。

Geoff joined Melco Crown Entertainment in 2006 as one of the first employees of the joint venture and that has become one of the region’s leading developer and operators of world class, fully integrated Entertainment Resorts. From 1995-97 Geoff was the Executive Producer of Crown Casino’s award winning Season’s of Fortune show in the Melbourne property’s central atrium space. The first of its kind attraction is still wowing audiences daily and signified the beginning of a long and successful business friendship between Geoff and Crown. As a result of this relationship, when Crown and Melco teamed up to develop the entertainment driven City of Dreams project in Macau, Crown brought Geoff in to direct the “special effects attractions” that have been instrumental to the property distinguishing itself as a world leader in cutting edge entertainment place-making experiences.

As Creative Director Geoff is responsible for producing international award winning attractions such as the Dragon Treasure show, the Vquarium Mermaids, and most recently SOHO for the company’s City of Dreams property in Macau. He is also completing work soon on ‘confidential’ new attractions for City of Dreams Manila, planned to open later this year. He and his team are currently developing all of the non-gaming attractions, along with a few surprise features, at Studio City, Melco Crown’s newest Macau development, opening in 2015.

After starting his career in traditional hotel development with Denver Colorado based AIRCOA in the early 1980’s, Geoff joined Lucasfilm in late 1988 and helped them start two companies. Skywalker Development Company,was a developer of special effects driven urban entertainment center concepts, and LucasArts Attractions, was a design-consulting arm of the Lucasfilm empire. It was at Lucasfilm where Geoff started blending various forms of traditional entertainment with hospitality and retail based real estate projects. After Lucasfilm, Geoff started his own company and he has since worked with many of the World’s leading real estate developers and entertainment companies on a full spectrum of unique “Entertainment Place-Making Projects” of every size and shape imaginable.
