The Return of F2FEC for 2021, 2022 and Beyond

After pushing “pause” at the conclusion of the 2019 IMAGINE event, the Amigos are planning renewed, and different Face 2 Face branded trade experiences for the out-of-home entertainment and leisure industry starting with the GATHERING in May 2021 and the exciting SHOWGRAM in March 2022.

The Gathering

Debuting in May 2021, at the Kalahari Resort in Round Rock [Austin] Texas.  This simplified and scaled-to-basic conference will bring together good friends and leaders to explore what 2020 has taught us, what’s next, and how inspired thinkers can collaborate as “WE” to establish goals and mobilize a collective commitment to RISE from the devastating and polarizing effects of the past year and move forward. Our theme for the GATHERING: RISE. Reset. Rebuild. Reach.

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.
