To become a more profitable club operator, it’s not just about making money—it’s also about saving money and cutting wasteful expenditures. At EXPO 2013, our panel of experts assisted clubs of all sizes in those crucial endeavors with advice tailored to specific areas of club operations.

Heading this workshop was Bob Johnson, who tapped into his 50 years of bar experience and offered tips on how club operators and bar managers can save money in an area that is often seen as one rife with waste and theft.
Robert Smith of Nightclub Security Consultants offered crucial tips on assuring that your staff knows how to properly handle incidents both inside and outside your club, along with advice on how a well-trained security and management staff can save your club money on insurance policies.
