The Amusement and Music Operators Association and the American Amusement Machine Association are teaming up again with Foundations Entertainment University for an educational program to be held in conjunction with next spring's Amusement Expo in Las Vegas. The first such event was held at this year's Amusement Expo. Amusement Expo is jointly owned by AMOA and AAMA.
The special education program, targeted at family entertainment center operators, is tentatively scheduled for March 18 and 19 (Monday and Tuesday) at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The 2013 Amusement Expo is set for March 20 through 22.
FEU will also work with the Amusement Expo in developing FEC-themed seminars as part of the business sessions that will be conducted on Wednesday morning, March 20, before the exhibits open. FEU and Amusement Expo will also collaborate with the show management firm, W.T. Glasgow Inc., to promote the educational offerings.
"FEU is excited to partner with the Amusement Expo again to offer FEC owners and managers a compelling learning experience, tied together with the industry's premier spring event," said Jerry Merola of Amusement Entertainment Management (East Brunswick, NJ), a principal of the FEU organization.
Pete Gustafson of Sega Amusements (and Play It Amusements), chairman of the 2013 Amusement Expo, hailed the renewal of the FEU alliance. "Since the first Foundations launch at expo this past spring, our focus has been on how we can grow and improve it," he said. "We're confident it will indeed be bigger and better next March."
