It's your one-stop maintenance shop!

Programs and Events
And this is where you will outshine all others! YOU want to be your community's "go-to place" for events!
RecEx can create new approaches to improve promotion of your facility and delivery of your programs and services, and create a "buzz" around the upcoming events in your facility. Ahh...a star is born. With our extensive background in specific recreation facility service areas—including aquatics, arenas, fitness centres and parks—the principal creative minds at RecEx will work with you and your staff to evaluate your initiatives and establish systems to improve customer retention, services, and financial accountability.

Food Services
Why have concessions? The reason is twofold:

  1. To fill in the hungry gap (feed the masses).
  2. To generate revenue.

With our winning team of concession experts, RecEx will work cooperatively with you at each facility to increase concession productivity through sales and service while reducing expenditures. Let our team help you investigate the revenue-generating opportunities in your facility's food services department. Believe me, "there's gold in them there hills."


You know it's always better to give than to receive... A strong volunteer program adds great value, both individually and collectively, to a community. RecEx supports and celebrates your community's dedicated volunteers, whose contributions help create a caring, connected—and happier—community. Let RecEx's volunteer development program help you meet this goal.

Are you missing the "sizzle"? Marketing your programs on a higher level can be the make-or-break difference in your facility. RecEx understands that even great programs need to be marketed well—just ask Rowdy and Rowdine; they've been spreading the word from day one! As you watch your user base increase, you will see the value in effective marketing strategies. That's why, for more than a decade, we've teamed with the marketing experts at Fusion FX Design and Marketing Inc. to help our clients evaluate existing marketing initiatives and develop fresh approaches that add sizzle and excitement to evolving programs and services.
