Attendees of this fall’s World Waterpark Association Annual Symposium and Trade Show can get a sneak preview of a special presentation on planning ahead for waterpark expansions in the July/August edition of World Waterpark Magazine. Presented by Richard Coleman of American Resort Management and Josh Martin of Martin Aquatic Design & Engineering, the educational session explains steps for waterpark owners looking to expand their offerings. Part of what they will be discussing is outlined in the latest issue, giving operators a helpful guide of where to start in the planning process.

“We tell every client that ‘Starting early is key,’ and that’s a big part of what we’ll be sharing with attendees of the WWA Show in October,” said Josh Martin.

Some of the lessons learned from both Coleman and Martin over their professional careers are summed up into this presentation, and waterpark owners will benefit from hearing about effective planning strategies when it comes to waterpark expansions. The session, titled “When is the Right Time to Plan for New Attractions? …NOW!” will be presented at the World Waterpark Show on Thursday, October 21 at 3:30 p.m. in San Antonio. Martin will also be joining a panel session titled, “Inside the Aquatics Studio” on Thursday morning at 8:45 a.m.
