Foundations Entertainment University - April 24-26

Time's running out to register for Foundation's Entertainment University, which will be held the popular venue of Chicago this spring. Attendance is limited to just 40 participants, so enroll now while space is still available. Read on for details.

It's hard to believe that we have been hosting Foundations Entertainment University for four years. The session in Chicago April 24-26 will be our 12th. We started Foundations with our co-regent, Frank Seninsky, to give entrepreneurs entering the industry, as well as operators planning to expand, a jump-start on laying the foundation for a successful business. Rather than start at the beginning of the learning curve, we've allowed them to start smart. As the slogan goes, "Businesses don't plan to fail, they fail to plan." We've had more than 400 attendees, many of whom have gone on to open successful location-based entertainment businesses or grow their existing facilities.

Our spring Chicago seminar always proves to be quite popular, especially with our tour of two successful centers, Enchanted Castle, a 28-year-old, 60,000-square-foot indoor family entertainment center, and Sugar Grove Fun Center, a five-year-old outdoor fun center. We limit attendance to the first 40 registrants to keep the seminar small to ensure attendees have the opportunity to talk one-to-one throughout the seminar with our five instructors, all industry veterans and pros.

Here's what Gary Richards from Stardust Lanes had to say about our last Foundations:

Best time I have ever spent in learning about a new start-up business. I don't know any other industry with a better start-up educational program with such knowledgeable instructors.

If you have considered attending, don't miss out, learn more and register now.
