The Roller Skating Industry Convention and Trade Show is the only event of its kind in the world. So, what will you learn to become a better and smarter business owner?
  1. Learn how to be a teacher. Where else can you learn about how to employ an educational program in your skating center? The STEM Program training seminar during Roller Skating University will teach you the power of turning your skating center into an educational powerhouse.
  2. Learn how to be a bartender. Okay, not really, but you WILL learn about the pros and cons of serving alcohol to customers in your skating center.
  3. Learn how to think like a police officer. It's a hot topic, one that none of us even want to consider, but you'll learn what to do in active shooter scenarios in a skating center setting, as well as how to identify gang activity and behavior.
  4. Learn how to become a better designer. Attendees can download the trial version of Adobe Photoshop and bring along their computers to follow along in this hands-on class about Photoshop and Canva. 
  5. Learn how to be a special effects pro. Your skating center ambiance is, hands-down, one of the most important parts of owning your business. Learn how to use fog and special effects to maximize your customer's experience.
  6. Learn how to be a better networker. As a business owner, you understand that talking to fellow skating center owners is one of the wonderful aspects of attending Convention. With more than 500 people in the same business all in one room, there is never a shortage of knowledge to go around.
  7. Learn how to be a marketing guru. If there's one thing business owners know, it's that marketing (or lack thereof) can make or break the bank. It's also that word of mouth and a smiling face can mean everything. This year's marketing assembly speaker will teach attendees how to market through customer service. 
But don't take our word for it. Here are what a few attendees last year had to say about Convention.
