Speaking at the Escape Summit in Ontario, Canada

👋 Canadians.

I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be delivering a talk on day 2 of The Escape Summit, a conference for escape room professionals.

Unfortunately, I’ll be traveling alone as Lisa has other commitments… so I’ll only be speaking with half of our collective brain.

My Talk

The Player Perspective

“In this talk, David Spira of RoomEscapeArtist.com will provide context and recommendations for anyone opening or operating an escape room business in 2019. People enter escape rooms from a diverse array of backgrounds. This talk will cover how the bar has been raised in this industry and pitfalls you need to look out for. It will also address strengths and weaknesses of industry players from other backgrounds; painting a picture of where this industry has evolved from and where it might go. “

Other Speakers

Our dear friends Errol and Manda of the Room Escape Divas will each deliver talks. (If Errol doesn’t sing something, I’ll be disappointed.)

One of my favorite escape game designers, Rob Leveille from The Crux Escape Rooms, will be giving a talk as well. I’m a bit sad that we’re scheduled for the same slot because I would have liked to hear his talk… such is conference life.

There are a number of other knowledgeable folks speaking as well. It should be a great time.

Call For Teammates?

I’m trying to put together a dense schedule of games in the greater Toronto area on Sunday, May 26th.

If teaming up with me sounds like something that you’d be interested in… drop a comment or send me a message.

I hope to see you next month.
