Winner: Combat Sports Outdoor Laser Tag - Manalpan, NJ
Winner: Cosmic Laser - Pontault-Combault, France
Like last year, the greatest number of submissions came for the best website catagory. It is excellent to see what operators are using to get their information across and customers in the door. As the selections were so well done, we had to choose two winners for this category. Both are GPA firsts, as the first winner is an outdoor laser tag site and the other is an international site.
The first winner is Combat Sports Outdoor Laser Tag in Manalapan, New Jersey. The action really draws the user in and creates an excitement that makes it stand out from it's competition. Not only is this website complex, but easy to navigate, which is a hard thing to pull off, but Combat Sports did it nicely.
The second winner is Cosmic Laser out of Pontault-Combault, France. We were immediately drawn in by the music and technological feel to the site. Action menus, breifing video, interactive scorecard, commercial, and more helped this website grasp the award here.
Best Radio Spot
LaserLite Laser Tag - Bloomington, IN
Radio spots can be a hit or a miss for your business depending on your audience. LaserLite has had much success with their radio spot and conveys its information and stays family friendly at the same time. To hear this radio spot, click the image below.
Operator of the Year
This annual award honors a facility owner or operator who exemplifies not only quality in their facility, but also has used their knowledge and abilities to improve the quality of life for his/her employees and the local community at large.
Winner: Jarett Waite - Laser Mania - St. George, UT
Jarett Waite took over this business from his father-in-law and has helped to make it a thriving business. Not only is Jarett looking to expand and open another facility, but also spends time to help educate others in the laser tag industry based on Laser Mania's experiences.
