Brussels, 30 March 2023 – Daikin Europe N.V. has announced that its subsidiary Daikin UK is sponsoring the venue for BBC Earth Experience, a brand new attraction in London featuring Seven Worlds, One Planet. This ground-breaking attraction will offer visitors the chance to experience the extraordinary diversity of our seven continents, featuring unique narration from Sir David Attenborough.
BBC Earth Experience will showcase footage to fully immerse the visitor, and music from the BBC Studios Natural History Unit television series Seven Worlds, One Planet, projected on multiple multi-angle screens using the very latest digital screen technology. This new London attraction offers a truly transformative experience that will allow audiences of every age to feel like they have stepped into the natural world, losing themselves in boundless wonder as they travel to far flung places. Visitors will take a 360-degree audio-visual journey to explore iconic landscapes and connect with animals on an adventure bringing environments to life.
Through the sponsorship of the purpose built venue, Daikin also seeks to contribute to the education of audiences on the benefits of low-carbon heating and cooling solutions and demonstrate its commitment to lowering the carbon footprint of UK homes and buildings. The experience will take place in a new, demountable venue called ‘The Daikin Centre’, located in Earl’s Court, London. This venue has been designed with a commitment to minimising environmental impact. At the same time, Daikin is dedicated to delivering the highest level of comfort and refined air quality inside the building.
