It's never too early to start promoting for a really cool show, so here we go. .
Pinside event page:
The 2016 Florida Arcade & Pinball Exposition, aka the Florida APE, will be held at the Mardi Gras Casino and Entertainment Complex in Hallandale Beach, Florida on February 19-21.
The APE used this location back in 2012 and it has proven to be a big easy-going venue with lots of free parking.
Everyone can expect an amazing weekend of arcade gaming fun featuring more than 200 pinball and arcade machines from all eras. Expect local vendors, tournaments, seminars, and special guest speakers.
We are taking a few late evening hours from Friday (02/19), and planning an Exhibitor after-party for those whom have their games on display, special VIPs, and other guests. Plan for good food consumption and drinks, among other cool activities being planned as a big "TY" for the elite supporters of APE.
Have an RV? Feel free to bring it and park it just feet away from the venue entrance. Otherwise if you are coming from very afar or wish to avoid the daily commute, we suggest to look at the nice nearby hotels listed on the website. Please do book soon as the show dates are during a rather "high traffic" season. The snowbirds love South Florida in the late winter/early spring.
A we get closer to 2016, I will update this post as more details trickles down.
