Jonathan Powell gets you up to speed on the perks of competitive socializing

In this episode of Let’s talk leisure Steven meets Jonathan Powell, CEO and Founder of 501 Entertainment that offers immersive games for competitive socializing, also known as the concept Eat. Drink. Play. 

Listen to this podcast to discover the importance of instant gratification in our on-demand society and how 501 Entertainment uses that principle with great success. You’ll find out how they even completely turned the tables for an underused space in the Four Seasons in Basildon.

With over 15 years of experience in the leisure industry and an impressive background in gaming software, Jonathan is the person to talk to when you want to know more about building technology that works and lasts.

Avoid false economies and focus on quality with an ease of booking where everything integrates into a seamless experience for your guests and you get the right data insights all in one place
