Virtual 360 Event

The Amusement Education Event for Startups and Operators

A special virtual event that brings the best together to educate, inspire, and share the tools for success

October 6-7, 2020








Become Empowered

As an amusement business owner, you encounter challenges that take time, effort, and energy to overcome. And with the state of the world today, you’re facing new challenges that you couldn’t even fathom a few months ago. What would it be like to sit in a virtual room full of experts who can help you solve your biggest challenges? Think about the results you could achieve and the progress you could make.

The 360 Event is an immersive virtual seminar that will empower you with the knowledge to solve these problems. You will leave this event with an action plan that will save you thousands in avoidable costs and maximize revenue for years to come.

Is 360 Right For You?

We’ve been hosting in-person 360 Events for years, and we’ve had hundreds of existing and aspiring operators attend from all over the world. This special virtual event will be streamlined to deliver the best, actionable content to help your business right now. If you have an existing facility or you’re looking to open one, you need to attend this virtual event.

Go Beyond Online Research

Smart business owners know there’s something special about engaging with live content like this. It’s one thing to passively read a blog post online. But there’s something truly amazing about being in the “virtual room,” asking questions, and seeing how other operators solve their problems. 

We work hard to create events that are educational, valuable, and fun! After all, this is the amusement industry, so why not have fun while we tackle important business challenges? Here’s a recap of our last in-person event from February 2020.


Several members of our own team are speaking, and we love sharing our extensive attraction knowledge with operators from around the world. We also work with the best speakers, experts, and consultants in the amusement industry. These experts will provide action items you can apply to every aspect of your business.

For this virtual event, we streamlined the content to make it easy for you learn and digest the information that will impact your specific business or project.

Day 1 – Focus on New Startups

If you’re in the process of opening a new facility, or even if you’re just in the initial research stage, the content on Day 1 will set a strong foundation for success.

Day 2 – Focus on Existing Operators

If you’re an existing operator of one or more facilities, the content on Day 2 will be crucial in helping you improve efficiencies and profitability for a post-virus world. New startups will also find a lot of value from this content.



The 360 Event has received a 4.8 star rating on a 5 star scale from hundreds of attendees over the years. We’ll let them do the talking…

Stacey Niedfeldt, Widgets

“The amount and quality of information these past 2 days would have taken countless days and hours of research and reading to obtain on my own. There is no substitution or better event to attend as a laser tag operator or FEC owner.”

Bob Switalski, Fun N Stuff Amusements

“Creative Works brought together a large number of industry professionals that helped provide invaluable information, best practices, and insight into our industry. They combined it with just the right amount of leadership and practical business knowledge to help improve existing companies and give a great foundation to future businesses.”

Tommy Barberini, Oak Mountain Lanes

“I wish we would have attended this event before we opened our bowling alley. The information provided was extremely eye opening, even after 13 years of being in the business. We would have definitely done some things differently had we attended this event before opening. I highly recommend this to anyone that is thinking about opening any type of entertainment center.”

Brit Jacobs, Langer Entertainment LLC

“A must for the owner considering building or upgrading a facility. Would recommend revisiting every 3 years at a minimum.”

Daniel Antoniou, Xplore Kids, Inc.

“As an FEC owner this trip has been worth every minute. Very relevant and insightful information shared by the industry’s best.”

Shannon Kubiak, FunDimension

“I can honestly say that unless you are a consultant, you WILL learn and find something to apply to your FEC or to yourself for improvement.”

Kim Green, Xtreme Adventure Zone

“This event has provided so much insight into the family entertainment industry as well as so many valuable relationships going forward. Every member of the Creative Works staff is amazing, knowledgeable, and so energetic. This has been an awesome experience and the attention to detail has been amazing.”
