Training at Paintball Extravaganza

Class & seminar schedules are going together for the 2016 event. Looking for suggestions on topics that may be added to the schedule that store or field owners would be interested in.
Over 70% of the attendees state that the training portion of the event is the main reason the event is attended. Help us meet your needs in training to make your business run smoother and more profitable.
Post any ideas you may have for new training sessions that could be added to the event.

Cold calls to potential work/staff functions and ideas on where to call.
Advertising (digital or signage) at our park, and how to charge advertisiers ($ per 1,000 visitors, or size of signs).
Cost effective advertising to get patrons to our park. fb, bridal shows, tradeshows, booths at the local fair, TV, radio, newspaper, and such.
Our parks through "Mom's" eyes or our customer, secret shoppers program. Effective signage at our parks.
Parking Lot layout and design, esp. for those busy Haunt nights.

Testimonials:

Hi Pev,
Thanks for another great learning experience. I have attended your classes for the past several years and get something new every time. I appreciate what you are doing to help field owners. In fact, the only reason I came to the extravaganza this year was for me and my new manager to get schooled by you. All the best to you and your family.
-Derek -Commando Paintball Sports Wisconsin

Pev,
First and foremost I would like to thank you for all of the time and energy you put into the courses and tour during Paintball Extravaganza, I was extremely impressed. I was able to attend your courses on Growing the Business, Industry Trends, Birthday Parties and your Field/Pro Shop Tour. We attended Paintball Extravaganza this year in hopes of learning as much as we possibly could before moving from mobile only operations to opening our retail location and field with the intent of avoiding some of the mistakes commonly made by others. It was reassuring that several of the things we were planning were suggestions you made, particularly the ideas of contacting schools/churches/sports teams to work with them for fundraising, one of our goals is to give back to the community and having a successful model for that which also helps to grow our business is a win/win. Something we hadn't considered was all of the potential up-sales for items for birthday parties. As a parent, I know how stressful it can be putting together a birthday party and the idea of having items like gift bags & candles available was not something I had thought of.
Thank you again for your time and investment in furthering the sport of paintball.
-Todd Nicholson -Mobile Action Sports, Inc.& Bayou Games, LLC

Pev,
I thought I'd email some feedback about the classes you taught at the Paintball Extravaganza and to ask for a copy of your Fundraiser Flyer.
I attended the seminars on Rapidly Growing Your Business with Little to No Expense, Birthday Parties Are Big Business, and the Friday tour of your facility. The information you shared is invaluable and the marketing methods and up-selling techniques you use will benefit my business beyond measure. I cannot wait to incorporate what I've learned from you into my business model. I recommend that newly starting paintball fields take every class you offer. I also recommend that existing paintball fields attend your class in order to remind themselves that there is more to it than just selling paintballs. Thank you so much for the info!
-Dustin Hester – Battle Park, OK


Thanks Pev!!! I attended your class at this years Extravaganza and found it very informing and relevant. Within a week of returning to my paintball park I started looking for local youth sport administrators to see their interest in paintball fundraising. I was amazed that within day's I already had Hockey, Baseball, and Football organizations excited about doing paintball fundraisers. Thanks Mike for all our help!!
-Michael McKinley, President -The Paintball Park @ Pekin, IL

Pev,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the time spent during the tour and seminars. We found the seminars very informative and time well spent- we came away with some great ideas that we can implement in our own company to try to increase traffic flow. We especially appreciated your attention to customer service, which re-enforces our own philosophy that without happy customers, you will not have repeat customers or new business. We hope that we can successfully implement some of the great ideas you shared during your lecture and appreciate the open communication.
-Shayne Cameron, Owner/Operator, Cameron Speedway and Amusements Inc.

Pev,
I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how informative your seminars are. Last year we came to Paintball Extravaganza before my Son and I opened our Store & Field. Even though we are in a small market with 6 fields within 10 miles we have had tremendous success using the info you provide at last years seminars. This year we not only took both your seminars again, but we also stayed around Friday for your Field Tour.
The Field tour was a great hit for us. We have already implemented changes at our field the day after we took your field tour.
Thank you for all your help and what you do for the Paintball Industry. It is great to see someone that gives back to the industry he loves.
-John J. DiDonato, Co-Owner Gear Up Paintball, Hammonton, NJ

Pev,
Thank you for your time and I really enjoyed your presentations.

Having the classes on what fields can do to generate revenue are great. But the tech classes are also a big part. If you could schedule things around the vendors so people can take as many tech classes as possible seemed like last year they over lapped enough where you couldn't get into some of them. I know its hard but last year you had to either do the Empire classes or the Planet Eclipse there was no way around it. I would love to be able to hit both of them up.
