Come learn about tools and strategies to estimate project costs, determine which part of your operation to tackle first, and some ideas for how you want the end product to look. This session will give you a benchmark of what the guest is looking for, and how to get it done. The Front Desk Is the Front Line for Service Speaker: Saskia Boogman, KOA External Content Manager and Stacey Huck, KOA Director of Field Services 202 D You can have the best campground facilities in North America, but if your Front Desk isn't firing on all cylinders, you're putting your business at risk.

Find out from a few of our multiple KOA owners how they "manage their managers," what it takes to handle complex budgets, what metrics they use to judge their success, and the efficiencies of running multiple parks. These peer experts will share their thoughts on problem solving on a multi-park level, and how to find the right property when you're ready to buy another campground. NPS Round Table: What Can Make the Difference? Facilitator: Rich Wardle, Quality Assurance Manager 203 B Please join your peers for roundtable discussions focused on using your NPS scores and feedback to improve your guest experience.
