20 Years of Innovation
Battlefield Sports is celebrating 20 years in business and as we reach this milestone it’s good to reflect on how far we have come.
Peter and I started in tropical Australia with a few thousand dollars and an idea: to experience a video game live. It was a busy time in our lives we had a toddler and another baby on the way.
I remember sitting in the maternity ward working on the web site on a laptop!
How different it is today. Today we have a team of dedicated staff, including those two munchkins who are now all grown up. Plus we have a network of Battlefield Gurus in the USA, UK, Chile, and Denmark.
With more than 500 customers across 56 countries and no sign of slowing down, we have established ourselves as a world-leading live gaming equipment manufacturer.
It has been an interesting journey.
I like to say it's been full of blood, sweat, and cheers!
Yes, we have had some ups and downs. Sure we've had our share of challenges. We've had people pirate our generation 1 software and pretend to be us. We've had people challenge our live gaming patent, a challenge we won. And we've had competitors spread all sorts of black PR about us.
We have also had some fabulous successes and humbling accolades. We have won more than 30 awards, including Exporter of the Year (Arts & Entertainment).
And we are still innovating, still manufacturing, and still dedicated to creating thrilling experiences for our players.
At our core we care about our gamers, we are inspired to make equipment to enable them to create happy memories. To be a part of some of the best times in our players' lives.
This year we have just moved into a brand-new headquarters.
We do not really know what the next 20 years will bring, but we can promise the same level of commitment and service that has come to define our business and reputation.
Thank you to everyone who has been part of our success.
A party is only good as the people who are there. Thank you for making our celebration one to remember. Over the last 20 years, we have met thousands of great people who have shared our passion for creating happy memories and, for running fantastic events.
We are happy to have been able to help our Battlefield Operators realize their dreams using our high-quality live gaming equipment. We want to thank each person who has helped us along the way, whether it has been through experience our brand of laser tag games, sharing their knowledge or supporting us by purchasing products.
We appreciate your support and we very much look forward to another successful 20 years.
Two decades of live gaming down, many more to come!
