The Return of F2FEC for 2021

After pushing “pause” at the conclusion of the 2019 Imagine event, the Amigos are planning a renewed, and different trade experience for 2021 and anticipate an early March timeframe for the reimagined Face to Face Experience.

From Me to We

F2FEC is an intensive 3 day experience that will expose you to new people, new ideas and address challenges to help navigate business and life. You’ll gain valuable knowledge and insight, form lasting relationships and enhance your center’s future.

The schedule


Immerse yourself with like-minded peers–the top minds in the industry–and work to empower one another to make a positive impact on your business, your future, your industry.

The speakers

Dining, Drinks & Dialogue

You don’t have to choose between business and pleasure–you will experience both in harmony at F2FEC. Participate in world-class discussions, accompanied with social engagements you will not experience at any other conference. Period.

The venue

Be in the Room.

The value of being in the room at F2F is that everyone has something to share and everyone has something to gain. We are all going to participate in an event relevant to our needs, our challenges, our interests and our future.

Experience. Passion. Opportunity.

Thank you so much for an amazing 3 days in Colorado. It was truly inspirational and humbling to be in the room. I cannot say enough to my peers about the conference and you three guys. I have attended many Bowl Expos, MUBIG meetings, and other industry events, but this one was by far the best.

David Posternak - Spare Time Entertainment

Wow! Great conference! You Amigos have done a great service to the hundreds of people that attended, and the thousands they will affect. I've benefited greatly from the relationships and wisdom shared. Thank you.

Logan Checketts - Soaring Eagle

I admire what you guys have done over the last 5 years with respect to the F2FEC conference. Your efforts have clearly helped individuals better their operations, and in turn have made our industry stronger.

John Parlet - John’s Incredible Pizza

F2FEC delivered. Thanks for bringing us in the room with such an incredibly special community. We made friends and benefited from the values and core principles of the Imagine theme and program.

Ryan Jacobs - Cloud Spotter / Spot My Photo

Thank you so much for the most meaningful conference I have ever attended in my life. I took 25 pages of notes and have written a report for my senior team and colleagues. I have remained so inspired.

Glenn Gable - Roll House

Congratulations on having provided the industry with an outstanding program that far surpassed IAAPA in bringing together FEC operators from around the country.

Peter Oleson - Peter Oleson Company

We have been to many industry gatherings, in a variety of industries, over the years, and what you have created with F2FEC is truly special and unique. Thanks for what you have done.

Keith & Elizabeth Oelrich - Sky High Sports

F2FEC is like attending Harvard Business School…and every other conference or workshop the industry offers is basic high school. Each year F2 helps me make more money and get better.

Scott Stillings - Box9 Entertainment

I have attended many conferences throughout my career, both in and outside the industry, and this was by far the best. The information was relevant, presenters on point, and the social interaction was invaluable.

Chris Albano - Stars and Strikes

I am humbled by yet another session that has fueled me. Your passion, commitment, grit, knowledge, integrity and importantly your caring serves as a beacon to us all.

Ron Malinowski - Bobs Space Racers

This is a quick note to say thanks for what was for me the best conference I've participated in during my soon-to-be 38-year industry career. You blew my expectations completely out of the water. 

Peter Gustafson - American Amusement Machine Association

I learned so much just in those couple of days spent with all of you. I’m taking back to my office a ton of inspiration and a bunch of ideas on how we more useful to the FEC community. 

Ingrid Adlum Milkes - RePlay Magazine

Each year F2F has succeeded in advancing your vision and this past week the Amigos exponentially raised the bar. No one in the industry will even come close to matching the quality and production value that F2F has achieved.

Alicia Lavay - Vending Times Magazine

It was by far your best event and the content, the people, the facility, and the entire process was exceptional. Way to go and I think everyone left with a ton of energy and enthusiasm.

Jon W. Brady - Player One Amusement Group

Thank you again for putting on such a wonderful event. It really is first class and I come away with new partnerships, ideas, and goals each time.

Armando Lanuti - Creative Works

Congratulations on another great conference. Not that I doubted but I did wonder how you could continue to raise the bar this year. You did it! The material and, perhaps especially, the production quality was really first class.
