During the four days of IAAPA, hundreds of business owners and entrepreneurs interested in new ventures visited CXC’s booth. By the end of the conference over 750 fans, drivers, and possible clients were able to experience the Motion Pro II themselves. Within 30 minutes of the opening of the exhibition, Chris Considine, CEO and founder of CXC Simulations, finalized his first sales transaction to Andretti Parks.
“We chose the CXC Racing Simulators for our next location because they will give our valued guests a very real and challenging racing experience while allowing several drivers to compete against each other. CXC offers professional-level simulation to our customers at an affordable price”, said Eddie Hamann, managing member of Andretti Indoor Karting & Games.
In addition to the Andretti transaction, there were several proposals initiated as well as follow up meetings with many interested parties. The business model and venue management software tools resonated with operations managers who recognized the importance of such features for running their establishments.
“CXC has always been on the cutting edge of racing simulators, and our private and corporate clients are among the few who have been able to join in the realistic experience of racing in our Motion Pro II on the world’s most famous race tracks,” said Chris Considine, founder and CEO of CXC Simulations. “We wanted to take this experience to a bigger level and felt that high-end amusement centers or sim-centers would be a great business model, and this show certainly proved to be a great decision.”
The sim-center equipment, hardware and software is completely flexible and designed for the requirements of the specific center location and business model. CXC offers a complete package ranging from retail space design (interior design), customized hardware, gaming software, venue management software, training and maintenance.
