Consumer Products to create an all-new Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts exhibition, which is slated to tour in multiple regions around the world including North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific Region (APAC) and Europe, Middle-East and Africa (EMEA).
The all-new Harry Potter: The Exhibition will be a scalable experience that will have a footprint between 10,000 square feet (929 square meters) up to 20,000 square feet (1,858 square meters).
