Up to 30 new educational and informative seminars on running a business in the hobby games industry will soon be available for download at  The seminars were all recorded at the 2009 GAMA Trade Show (GTS) in Las Vegas.  Subject matter discussed in the seminars includes how and what products to buy as a retailer, accounting basics, how to utilize community partnerships, and information on the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). 

With the click of a button, the podcasts give seasoned business owners and those just starting out invaluable information from industry leaders, all for free.  “This collection of seminars is a resource every retailer in the business needs to listen to,” said Don Dehm, president of the Arizona-based and GAMA Director at Large.  “People are downloading and absorbing this ‘audio gold’ by the thousands to learn how to run a smarter business, and ultimately increase their bottom line.”

Approximately 60 GTS seminars from the past two years are also available for download on the website, with new seminars released on a weekly basis.  Over half a dozen of the 2009 seminars are available now, with those scheduled for release in next few weeks including topics like “Making Board Games Work for You” and a two-part series on buyer’s training.
