CWA Summit News

Posted on May 31, 2012

We had a great time at the Climbing Wall Summit in Boulder, CO.  It was our first time showing Elevate Climbing Walls with a trade show booth.  We were there mainly to observe and learn.  There are a lot of climbing walls being built around the country.  The level of new business and new climbing gyms is at a very high level.  One thing that we learned while we were there is that there are a lot of older rock climbing gyms around the country that have reached the end of their life span in terms of commercial viability and depreciation.  What operators of older gyms need to think about is how to put new life into their business either through expansion, or remodel.  I have been operating climbing gyms for almost 25 years now.  I have learned that it was important to design a gym so it can be remodeled easily when needed.  Every time I have remodeled a section of a gym my revenues have always increased significantly.  Climbing walls are just like exercise equipment in a health club.  You need to bring in fresh equipment every once in a while in order to keep your customers jazzed about sticking with your gym.  Elevate Climbing Walls has many years of experience in rejuvenating a climbing gym by remodeling the climbing walls.  Trust me, it does work it the pay off is significant.
