Mike “Pev” Peverill returns to Paintball Extravaganza for his 6th presentation at the industry’s largest tradeshow and dealer summit to present his popular seminar in which he shares his years of experience operating one of the most successful paintball businesses. Mike’s seminar, at the upcoming 2012 Paintball Extravaganza International, will include a presentation that was shared at this spring’s Paintball Field Conference, held this past May in Washington DC, presented by Paintball Events Unlimited in cooperation with Pev’s Paintball.

Pev’s session “Field Marketing: “Growing Your Customer Base with Limited Dollars” will be covering, among other items, non-traditional revenue streams at a paintball facility, up front operations, company picnics, team building, on going field maintenance and field operations. The 3 ½ hour session will be capped off with an optional Friday tour of the Pev’s Paintball Facility with further continued on-site training.

Space in this session is limited, register early. Visit Paintball Extravaganza International at http://www.pb-events.com or on our facebook http://www.facebook.com/PaintballExtravaganza

Reasons to go from past attendees:

Here's why some fields have and continue to attend Paintball Extravaganza. Don't pass up on the industry's "can't miss event" of the year.

George Lewko; Owner of Paintball Paradise, Canada
I have been to 3 Extravaganzas (Springfield, Atlanta & Anaheim), highly recommend it to all field and store owners. Great training and great to meet all the paintball manufacturers and suppliers.

Jim Emmerich; Owner of Action Packed Paintball, Minnesota
People often ask me why I attend the Extravaganza every year. My most common response is: Why wouldn't I? It allows me to keep my technical and business skills up to date, study current industry trends, look at current product, and network with hundreds of fellow business owners all under one roof in a setting specifically set up for that purpose. Vendors are more interested in selling retail at tournaments than talking to owners and the last paintball "festival" I attended seemed to be more about showing porn than paintball product.

Ken Halverson; Owner of James River Valley Paintball, South Dakota
The Paintball Extravaganza to me has been a valuable event where Industry leaders that include manufacturers, field owners, store owners, large and small, can meet face to face to discuss the business challenges they encounter and exchange ideas on how to overcome those challenges. Although my businesses are small in comparison to many of the other attendees, I have had the privilege to speak with and network with both International and Domestic manufacturers and larger field owners, gaining much needed business procedures, field designs, industry insights, and marketing concepts that otherwise are not typically available to businesses our size. I have attended over 5 of the annual Paintball Extravaganza conferences, and the knowledge shared from other owners and the seminars have helped me not only grow my business despite a difficult economy, but also cultivated some great long lasting relationships with the manufacturers/sponsors/owners.

The money you spend on the Education and Networking you do at the conference is the greatest return on investment for any paintball field owner serious about their business and this Industry. Rick and his Crew have created a "World Class" Event for global paintball business enthusiasts to meet and grow this exciting sport.

One final note. every paintball field/store in our region that has gone out of business in the last 6 years, never attended this conference.

Why Would You Attend?

George, Jim & Ken have told why a store or field owner should attend Paintball Extravaganza International, the industry's only wholesale tradeshow and largest dealer summit.

If you've previously attended Extravaganza, let us know what important information you received to help your business.

Heck, that's easy. Just find a PbNation admin, buy him some beers, and ask him to give you the badges you need to level up.

Then buy me twice the beers, and I'll pass half of them up the chain to my local admin.
