Foundations Entertainment University - Sept 20-22, Kansas City

There is a good reason why Foundations Entertainment University is now in its eighth year and going strong. It is the best and most in-depth seminar program that can be found anywhere in the location-based and family entertainment industry for both start-ups as well as existing operations. It has become the Gold Standard for industry education.

Here's what attendees had to say about the most recent Foundations program in held in Chicago in July:

  • Chad Cook, Freedom Station FEC, Prescott Valley, AZ. (17 years in the FEC business): 
    The Foundations' Team has done a great job at developing a program that is not only relevant to beginners, but also to a veteran operator!
  • Jim Legner, Amazing Chicago’s Funhouse & MagiQuest, Chicago: 
    FEU provides a wealth of information that is vital for anyone contemplating an entertainment business.  This is my second visit and I still learned a lot.  You are kidding yourself if you think you can be successful without planning and thinking about all of the topics covered.
  • Kirsten Legner: 
    The Foundations' Team provides a tremendous wealth of information to help business owners & potential owners make intelligent decisions about their projects.  Don’t start your project, don’t quit your current job, until you hear what they have to say!
  • Joe Bundra, Betson:
    The real-life examples were excellent. Many start-ups don’t have the history, so the stories about other FEC’s triumphs and challenges were invaluable.
  • Jason Lynch, Destrehan, LA:
    Foundations gave me the opportunity to view a wide array of expertise, explore evolving industry concepts, bounce ideas in 1 on 1 settings, fine tune my business plan, and explore potential opportunities with industry-specific suppliers. FEU is a must for entry-level and owners to keep a competitive advantage over their nearest competition.
  • Terri Kemp, Brooklyn Park, MN: 
    Will there be a Part 2?  I am hooked!  Thank you for the valuable information & resources.
  • Greg Sloan, Extreme Engineering
    If you are considering an FEC of any size venue, product, or offering, and are lost in the sea of information overload, call and schedule to attend Foundations University to chart your course. The presenters have vast experience and don’t sugar coat, but put you into reality!
  • Danny & Cathy Green, Middletown, OH:
    This course helped to refine our vision. Tremendous amount of information in a short time.  Very well organized.
