Adam Friedman – Chief Executive Officer at Jurassic Quest
The company pivoted in May. We lost some of our attractions. However,
we can show our dinosaurs in a different way. Some of the things that we lost were replaced with other entertainment value.
Adam Friedman is the newly appointed CEO of Jurrassic Quest, a leading family edutainment company and producer of the largest North American touring dinosaur exhibition. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jurrassic Quest was the first to quickly pivot to an outdoor drive-thru exhibition, which has been a breakthrough success in the touring business. With over 25 years in the live entertainment industry, Adam has played a key role in building and growing iconic brands including Banc of California Stadium Entertainment, Nederlander Concerts, House of Blues, and Universal Concerts. He has promoted, produced, and toured premium live entertainment, and has developed, operated, and programmed award-winning entertainment venues across North America. Prior to Jurrassic Quest, Adam was the President of Banc of California Stadium Entertainment where he oversaw the operation and programming of the new stadium in Los Angeles. Adam also built and owned Friedman Entertainment Advisors, an entertainment consulting firm advising major industry stakeholders in the sports and live entertainment space.
