COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- The fifth annual Face to Face Entertainment Conference (F2FEC) is scheduled for Tuesday, Mar. 5 through Thursday, Mar. 7, 2019 in Colorado Springs, CO, at the Broadmoor Resort. The event will attract more than 225 family entertainment thought leaders and influencers.

The event was launched in 2015 by Rick Iceberg, C.J. Barrymores (Clinton Township, MI); Ben Jones, Live Oak Bank (Wilmington, NC); and George Smith, Family Entertainment Group (Itasca, IL), three family entertainment center veterans  well-known as the Three Amigos. The four previous conferences have attracted a large and growing industry following.

"Each year, we seek to find an intriguing venue to stage the experience," Jones said.  "We found that and more hosting 'Soul' [last year's theme for the conference, which focused on the personality of an organization] at the Broadmoor, making the decision to return, easy and exciting."

His fellow amigo, Rick Iceberg, emphasized that "F2 is about people, and the Broadmoor showed us that they too are all about people. Their leadership – including Maureen Carter, Bridget Glazer and Ann Alba – and the entire staff provided us with  unprecedented care and attention to detail"

Invited guest Michelle O'Brien, Fiesta Village (Colton, CA) sums up F2FEC this way: "Thank you for your vision, for dreaming, planning and executing this unprecedented event."

Tim O'Donnell, Haas Wilkerson Insurance (Fairway, KS), who has supported the conference since its inception, observed that "F2 is simply the best event in our industry."

F2FEC is founded and produced by the Three Amigos, supported by a diverse and dynamic group of volunteers from all segments of the entertainment center industry.
