|January 11, 2007, Phoenix-Glendale, AZ --- Hotel and resort
developers from across the USA, Mexico & Canada will meet in Glendale
on March 1 & 2, 2007 to learn more about the phenomenal growth of indoor
waterparks as part of mixed-use resort projects as well the details of
how to do it successfully.
The development workshop runs from 9:00 am Thursday, March 1 through 5:00 pm Friday, March 2 at the Thunderbird School of International Management. The conference is limited to the first 180 registrants. For more information and registration, go to the conference website, www.hotelwaterparkworkshop.com, or call 800-475-3667.
Resort developers, hotel managers, attraction owners, city council members, tourism and economic development officials are expected to attend. Attendees will learn how to capitalize on the rapidly-growing phenomenon of building mixed-use resort developments that include hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, retail, residential, condos, vacation ownership, conference centers and an abundance of recreation-entertainment facilities --- especially indoor-outdoor waterparks --- that create a strong regional magnet for new destination resorts.
Uni-Systems LLC, a Minneapolis-based design and engineering firm is co-producing the development workshop in conjunction with Jeff Coy of JLC Hospitality Consulting of Cave Creek AZ and Bill Haralson of William L. Haralson & Associates of Alto NM --- two leading authorities and founders of Hotel Waterpark Resort Research & Consulting.
Uni-Systems, the world leader in the engineering of mechanized structures, designed and installed the retractable roof and retractable field for the recently-opened University of Phoenix Stadium that hosted the Fiesta Bowl and the BCS Bowl. “Retractable roofs and domed structures covering large spaces are the future of the fast-growing indoor-outdoor waterpark industry --- because they let in the light and keep out the weather,” according to Coy. A lunch, tour and demonstration of Uni-Systems’ moveable roof is scheduled for Friday.
Focused on the future, the workshop will feature new sessions on surfparks, whitewater river parks, indoor skiing on real snow, condo-hotels, preparing to meet the money, raising equity and arranging for loans on such projects.
