IMAGINE is the theme for the 2018 F2FEC experience, to be hosted at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, CO, March 5-7, 2019. Apply to “Be in the Room”Ò.


The 2019 F2 Experience will explore the premise that “IMAGINE” is the path to the on-going success of your organization.” Imagining the possible beyond the predictable is what the 2019 theme is all about.  Our ability to imagine and to use our imaginations will keep our businesses and industry relevant with future opportunities.


“Nothing we start or plan happens without first imagining what it looks and feels like.” “To imagine is  the beginning of something and to continually re-imagine provides a future that is sustainable”, explained Amigo Ben Jones, FEC GM & Domain Specialist with Live Oak Bank. Amigo George Smith, president of Family Entertainment Group, advancing the humanity of 2018’s SOUL, framed the Imagine theme this way, “our business will excel and we will retain our high-performing crew members if we teach them to be creative and innovative and encourage our people to use their imagination”.  And finally Amigo Rick Iceberg sums up Imagine this way, “Imagine if we didn’t plan, didn’t form relationships, and imagine if we stop learning or stop trying to find ways to remain relevant and make more money.”


The Amigos continue to build upon a collection of conference themes, messages and challenges to the entertainment center industry. The strong and direct message of “Change or Die” that kicked off the F2 Experience in 2015, has been embraced by the masses and the industry is witness to the change evolution in all sectors. Most recently, in February, at this year’s F2FEC the theme of “SOUL” focused on people and the humanity of our organizations.


The unique Face 2 Face gathering once again brings together “the best of the best” for powerful insights with the goal of helping every attendee develop relationships and talk about what’s now, what’s next and focus on helping everyone contrast, compare, innovate, and remain relevant.

Attendees include manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, media and facility owners from traditional Family Entertainment Centers, Bowling Centers, Cinema, Trampoline Parks, Laser, Eateries and Food-forward Bistros, Specialty and Hybrid entertainment concepts.
