Hi All,


We (GKM Int'l) will be at Bowl Expo (booth 525). Wondering who will be attending and what you think the attendance #'s will be like compared to past years. Also wondering what new and/or interesting product/service/event that you are looking forward to most. It will be great to see so many friends and meet new ones. Please plan on visiting us at our our booth. Smart Seats and Profit Platforms.


Cheers, Karen, Melissa and Gordon Murrey

I am looking forward to seeing you at Bowl Expo. JaNelda is pushing me to order Profit Platforms even before Bowl Expo. I expect Bowl Expo attendance to be better than last year which a bit of a change. Normally the second year in LV is weaker than the first but last year was just a crazy time all around the country. I believe people are more comfortable with the overall economic situation and although we will not set a record, we will be better than last year. Coming out of the recent dismal economic times of the last two years, good operators are recognizing that they need to invest in upgrading their centers. I would anticipate that interest in products that give the opportunity for a quick ROI and don’t require financing.
The staff of IBI will be exhibiting and strolling, meeting and greeting, from Sunday on. See everyone in Vegas!
Thanks Joe! You have always been a visionary and I'm very interested in hearing about what you think the "next thing" will be. Really enjoyed your recent email to the should create some lively discussions at Bowl Expo. A BIG THANKS to JaNelda for her interest in the Profit Platform. We will have it at the tradeshow and it's been really fun seeing the creative wheels turning in the heads of those that see it for the first time. I think you are correct about attendance being better this year as we have all learned to develop new and better ways of doing business... attending Bowl Expo is one way to tap into all that. ROI is the driver.
I will be at Bowl Expo in the Marketing Area (booth #1120). Will be sharing how to use social media like Facebook and LinkedIn in a bowling center. I hope Joe is right about the attendance, but my past experience running Bowl Expo tells me that it will be down from last year due to it being the 2nd year in Vegas.
Hi Gordon,

Switch will be at Bowl Expo! I also need to speak with you about your product as I am building a center which will need to dedicate 2 or 4 lanes to tournament finals every so often and they like the idea of having 'stadium style seating' on both sides of those lanes... looking forward to seeing you and everyone else there again this year.

Hi James,
Good hearing from you and that your customer is interested in the Profit Platform for spectator seating support on adjacent lanes for Tournaments. BTW, Eastern Sports did this in April at Tokyo Port Bowl for the Japan Cup ( will send some photos to you). Additionally, we have a meeting with the PBA set up at Bowl Expo to discuss this so interest for this use is increasing. The great thing is since the Profit Platform is modular it can be set up for a Tournament one day and reconfigured into something else (a stage for a band, dance floor, etc.) the next day. Good for ROI.
Suggest you see the Virtual Installation at to see how it works...almost as cool as your Switch video of a bowling center being built...I really enjoyed watching that.
See you at Bowl Expo!
I will be at bowl expo thanks Bill Holt
