Peter Ed, international business development manager of ETC Europe, has been elected president of the European division of the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). Ed has also joined the TEA's international board of directors.

TEA Europe, the first international arm of the Burbank, CA-based association, was formed last July. Ed's term runs through 1999. He says, "TEA Europe is on its feet and starting to toddle along now with increasing confidence--we're all holding our breath to see where it's going." He adds, "We are already looking at how Europe can gain from the lessons learned by the TEA on standards and contracts in the US."

Ed can be contacted at ETC Europe, Unit 5, Victoria Industrial Estate, Victoria Road, London W3 6UU, England; by e-mail at: ped@etceurope; or visit the TEA website at www.themeit.com.
