About Us
The Element of Surprise.

Read Content

An unforgettable story.

That’s what we promise. A story your guests can see, hear, feel, and walk through. Or under. Or around.

We design unbelievable experiences to tell these stories. Experiences that blend our clients’ biggest dreams with a deep understanding of the ways that people move through the world.

We’re sculptors, designers, architects, artists, and strategists devoted to something bigger than experiences alone. We’re devoted to the people who will be changed by those experiences.

Our clients include the Biltmore Companies, National Geographic, SeaWorld, Delaware North, Bass Pro Shops, the Gettysburg Foundation, the Georgia Aquarium, and many others. Recent assignments include planning and design at many of the world’s must-see destinations, including the Grand Canyon, the Pyramids of Giza, the Biltmore Estate, Busch Gardens, Discovery Cove, Niagara Falls, Kennedy Space Center, and PortAventura.

Dreamers, thinkers, and makers.
Meet our team.

Committed to discovery.

We believe that destinations can only thrive if they’ve been built on an exceptional understanding of their audiences.

That belief has led PGAV Destinations to become a recognized leader in the incorporation of consumer trends and insights into the planning process. We know your visitors well, and the results of our research are published in our newsletter Destinology, read by nearly 7,000 industry professionals across the world.
