Individuals from all over North America met in Chicago on July 16-18 to hear seven of the entertainment industry’s most knowledgeable presenters (including our CEO) share their expertise and experience in starting and running a successful entertainment center. Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, Foundations Entertainment University (FEU) is recognized worldwide as the platinum standard of education in family and leisure entertainment with over 850 graduates worldwide. No other industry seminar program has resulted in more successful entertainment projects.
Joshua Guzman of The Dane Group is planning to open a laser tag center and told us, “This experience is absolutely necessary. From the networking to the knowledge, this event has changed my perspective in a great way. Don’t hesitate on going. It is absolutely worth it!”
Although Foundations is a must for anyone entering or thinking about entering the family and location based entertainment industry, we can see that existing facilities have found the program to be invaluable as they reassess their current business plans and look to make significant changes for the future.
Chris Paliga, owner of Hollywood Fun Park in Crestwood, IL, shared the following, “Being an operator for over ten years, I thought it [Foundations] would be targeted to entry level operators. While it is great, almost imperative for the new operator, I found it informative, inspiring, and enjoyable. It gives me a heads up on what my future competition will be and makes me want to go back, sharpen my pencil, and get to work.”
Ryan Clancy is looking to open an indoor FEC and was pleasantly surprised by what he found by attending Foundations. “I had erroneously assumed that I was here for a sales pitch, but this couldn’t have been farther from the truth. The breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise presented here has been tremendously useful. I wish that I had attended this a year ago!” said Clancy.
The 30th Foundations Entertainment University seminar program is just three weeks away. It will take place September 17-19, 2013, in Kansas City, MO. The cost to attend is only $489 and includes all lunches and dinners and tours of FECs. Additional attendees from the same company or family can attend for half-price. Frank Price of Birthday University will be giving an optional half-day seminar on Remarkable Parties & Groups following Foundations for only an additional $10 fee.
