If You're Going To Invest In Laser Tag, Do It Right The First Time
You've probably heard the phrase "If you build it, they will come." This might be true for laser tag, but we would amend it to say "If you build it, they will come, but only once." In order to WOW customers and keep them coming back, you have to do more than just build a laser tag attraction. You need the right location, efficient design, engaging staff, excellent customer service, solid marketing, smooth operations, and a whole lot more.
Does this sound like a lot? It should. But we have good news! We have more than 20 years of experience in the laser tag industry, and we want to teach you everything we know. This is where our LaserTAG360 Event comes in.
Benefits: What's In It For You?
LaserTAG360 is a 2-day event designed to help you open a laser tag attraction at a new or existing facility. We bring together experts from every facet of the entertainment industry to deliver a well-rounded education. When you leave this event, you'll have an action plan of where to go and how to get there. The information from the first day alone could save you tens of thousands of dollars.
"LaserTAG360 not only helped me see the way to profit, they saved me a ton of money with their education and hints!" - Mohab Youssef
We start with the foundations of design and development, with topics such as site selection, business plan best practices, and funding qualifications. Then we incorporate marketing and operational presentations and teach you things like the fundamentals of laser tag, employee training, and online marketing tactics.
If you want to earn any of IAAPA's professional certifications, then we have good news. LaserTAG360 has been recognized as a pre-approved course within their program. If you attend our LaserTAG360 event, you'll receive 16 credit hours that you can apply toward any IAAPA certification!

Theme Factory and Site Visits
One of the highlights of the LaserTAG360 Event is the tour of our production facility (AKA Theme Factory). You get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how every project moves from concept to completion through each department: design, foam, wood, paint, and assembly. After seeing how we build our attractions, we take you on site visits to several entertainment facilities in the Indianapolis area. You'll get hands-on demonstrations of the laser tag equipment and walk-throughs of the themed arenas.
