The 2018 Room Escape Conference is going to be in Nashville, Tennessee July 27-29.
Last year’s show made a lot of improvements to the experience. Based on how early and thoroughly everything is being planned for 2018, I get the impression that this one is going to be the best one yet.
Plus… it’s in Nashville!
We are in Nashville this weekend playing many of the escape rooms in the area. We’ll publish reviews of these games throughout March and April. This will help conference attendees find the escape rooms that best fit their interests.
We’ve heard a lot of great things about the Nashville escape room scene. We’re excited to check it out!
Live on stage
We will be giving a talk about the state of the industry in the United States. In 2016 and 2017 we published industry growth statistics on this blog. This summer, hear us announce these numbers live on stage and discuss other trends that we see driving the business all around the world.
I don’t care for a conference about escape rooms that doesn’t understand the industry itself. If it did it wouldn’t hold a conference on the weekend when that’s precisely when the industry is the busiest. Most owners are hands on and aren’t leaving the keys to the business in the hands of someone else while they are gone. Not very smart planning.
It’s been done both ways. But your comments about not understanding the industy are humorous.
We’ve been working with the organizers to help find really strong speakers.
As far as the timing is concerned, the first year they held it on a weekend and half the people complained. The second year they held it in the middle of the week and half the people complained. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
