No Seminar Program has Resulted in More Successful Entertainment Projects

Workshop Overview & Schedule

FOUNDATIONS is a comprehensive educational workshop and seminar program covering all aspects of planning, designing, developing and operating a location-based entertainment business or family entertainment center (FEC) for long term success.

FOUNDATIONS provides a complete blueprint for anyone developing and opening a new center or significantly expanding or renovating an existing location-based entertainment facility. Attendees will tap into over 200 years of combined experience and expertise from six of the industry's top consultants and operators to eliminate the steep learning curve and avoid the mistakes of less fortunate past companies who are struggling to survive or have closed. You'll also have a lot of fun, including behind the scenes tours and chance to try out the fun at an area family entertainment center and an opportunity to meet one-on-one with the instructors.


Foundations is crucial for start-up entrepreneurs looking to get into the location-based entertainment and FEC industry, individuals and companies in the planning, designing and building stage, new operators and businesses looking to grow and expand their current operations.

Participants attending will include high-level decision makers, including founders, owners, CEOs and general managers. All will benefit from gaining new knowledge, insight and a better understanding of how to be successful in the fun and location-based entertainment industry.
