"As a new facility operator I have relied on best practices from similar facilities in order to plan our staffing and maintenance programs.  As we are entering the market, it seems there is a lack of networking and training opportunities for facilities like ours.  The Sports Facilities Summit fills a large need in the industry and I am excited to learn from experts around the country on how to better our product and/or operations."
Ben Huffman, CSEE, Director of Sports Enterprises, Warren County CVB
