2019 Was the Coco Agency’s Year of the Dragon

After Tel Aviv and Dammam, the Spectacular Game of Dragons Also Took Place in Riyadh

After Tel Aviv and Dammam, the Spectacular Game of Dragons Also Took Place in Riyadh

Our gracious exhibition “Game of Dragons” that collects 24 magical creatures was launched in Riyadh on the 28th of November. The Dragons will entertain the Al-Othaim Mall’s visitors till 12th of December with their specific movements and stories.

In this CoCo Mag edition, we introduce you to three of our beloved dragons.

Zmey Gorynych 

The infamous three-headed dragon from the Russian fairy tales comes alive at CoCo Agency’s “Game of Dragons” exhibition. According to the legend, a hero called Dobrynya Nikitich went to fight the dragon. After seeing he was going to be defeated, the dragon asked for mercy. The hero let the creature go, so almost immediately Gorynych kidnapped a princess. Dobrynya followed them and in an epic, three-days long fight, he saved the girl and killed the monster. In our story, the three-headed dragon continues to live but he has already repented and therefore now he is dedicating his life to entertaining beautiful girls.

Interesting fact: Not only Gorynych can spew fire and smoke, but also he can speak human language!

Shen Lang

In the Chinese mythology, Shen Lang is believed to be the ruler of the weather and climate, as well as of death and life. His name translates to “spirit dragon.” This is the creature people worship and have to respect and love. And they do. Gifts are required, as Shen Lang can get angry and punish people with bad weather and thus – no good crops and food at the table.

Interesting fact: Shen Lang is also known for his taste for adventures and can simultaneously live in different dimensions. Don’t get surprised if you see him in two different countries at the same time.

Atanielle 

The legend of the fabulous Atanielle is believed to originate from France. But the female dragon is so old that she can’t even remember her homeland. Her good temper is widely known as she is usually helping the elves in their endeavours to fight the evil. She is very loyal, and she is keen on beautiful music.

Interesting fact: She can breathe underwater and also became invisible.

See all of our curious creatures at the Game of Dragon’s upcoming exhibitions in 2020!

Coco Agency @ Joy Forum: “Grow Your Event Organically!”

Our team was a part of Joy Forum – one of the major expos in the Middle East for inventive technologies in the entertainment sector, which took place on 13 and 14 October 2019 at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The Joy Forum 2019 brought together entertainment promoters and pioneers from around the world, along with global stars such as Jackie Chan and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Dan Firoiu and Tsvetelina Grozdanova were among the 30 international speakers to represent their ideas about the future of the entertainment industry and effective ways to reach targeted audiences.

CoCo Agency shared a stand with its local partner D7 Group that attracted more than 2 000 visitors curious to understand more about our organisation and the unlimited opportunities that the world-class travelling exhibitions provide.

It was a great honour for us to present our services and share our knowledge in such an event that clearly showed that Saudi Arabia is open to collaboration with countries all around the world,” explained Dan Firoiu.

His 2 hours presentation on the topic  “How to start and grow your event organically” grabbed the attention of Joy Forum’s visitors and had great feedback. It focused on the successful techniques for creating and managing an event, presenting case studies from international projects.

Dan Firoiu shared his vast experience in organisation and delivery of travelling exhibitions for event promoters, malls, theme parks, museums, amusement parks, convention centres, special events, casinos and hotel parks and lobbies. CoCo Agency’s Co-founder also gave practical advice to the attendees about the importance of event marketing and promotion, as well as of artists’ provisions.

Along with our workshop and business stand, the visitors had the chance to see some of our animatronic dragons, part of the travelling exhibition Game of Dragons.

Our Dragon Was the Highlight of Bege Expo 2019!

It was a pleasure for us to present our entertainment products and one of our “living” dragons at this year’s BEGE Expo that took place on 20th and 21st of November in Sofia. BEGE Expo is a meeting point for the gaming and entertainment industry, gathering international visitors, including manufacturers and suppliers, affiliates, payment service providers, media and associations. This year the exhibition brought together over 5000 international visitors annually from more than 53 countries. 

CoCo Agency was among 80 global exhibitors, situated in three halls at BEGE. As a part of the panel “Product presentations from the headlining companies”, our presentation took place on November 20. Our team passionately introduced to the visitors CoCo Agency’s services and products suitable for various sectors of the entertainment industry – attractions, amusements, artists, shows, travelling exhibitions for casinos, theme parks, hotels, malls, convention centres, sports events, public venues, etc. We stimulated a discussion about the tools for optimizing the event management and the possibilities that interactive entertainment offer.

And there was a lot more – the visitors of the expo were able to see one of our “living” dragoons exclusively! The spectacular creature was in Bulgaria for the first time, after a long flight from distant Saudi Arabia, where the interactive show named “Living Dragons and Talking Trees” took place. The travelling exhibition was in Riyadh. Now the Dragons are getting ready for an international tour next year!
