LENEXA, KS -- Redemption Plus plans to get its expanded online education program off to a fast start with a free webinar titled "The Three Wise Men Discuss Hot Topics in FEC Operations." It's set for Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time.

The new Redemption Plus initiative, called Rtown Academy, updates the company's Redemption University program. The leadoff webinar is a panel discussion among Rick Iceberg, C.J. Barrymore's (Clinton, MO); Ben Jones, Live Oak Bank's family entertainment expert; and George Smith of Family Entertainment Group (Barrington, IL). Redemption Plus's George McAuliffe, an FEC industry veteran with 25 years' experience who founded Pinnacle Entertainment Group, will moderate.

The "wise men" will offer a case study of C.J. Barrymore's expansion, an exploration of means to finance expansion and the purchase of games and attractions, and an exchange of views on the best games to buy today, in the light of the recent IAAPA Attractions Expo. Registration for the informative webinar is available online at gotomeeting.com/register/154492354.

Redemption Plus reports that its Rtown Academy will offer ongoing insights into common challenges and opportunities for bowling centers, FECs, amusement parks, and other segments of the industry. It will also feature a forum to trade ideas and make valuable connections, all at no cost to its users.
