    DPO EXPO 2017
    DUTCH PINBALL OPEN EXPO CELEBRATING NFV 25TH ANNIVERSARY ON 11-12 NOVEMBER !

    After a very successful DPO EXPO 2014&2015 the DPOteam is proud to announce that in 2017 this event will take again place after a year of rest, this time on 11&12th november.

    Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Dutch Pinball Association (NFV) this is going to be a special event. Just the change of the location compared to 2014&2015 already shows the ambition of the organizers : Evoluon. This is an iconic building and perhaps the best-known building in the Netherlands. And the shape fits us Pinheads pefectly : it's Europe's biggest popbumper

    More info on the location can be seen at » YouTube video

    Have you always been jealous on your wife when she enjoys fairs with her friends, and returns home with great stories? Wouldn’t you be willing to miss (or share) your friend for a weekend, for the ultimate pinball experience? Then DPO Expo 2017 is the place to be.

    Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger. The members of Daft Punk couldn’t have phrased it better. Think about more pinball machines (aim is 250+ with a target of even up to 500 machines !), more vendors, national and international speakers, sidegames, great food but most important: Atmosphere with the capital P of Passion.

    There are plenty of ideas ‘behind the Dot Matrix Screens’ and hard work is being done already, to realize as many as ideas with a DPO-team which has never been this big and this eager. And this is all done for you. When you prefer spending the weekend with your parents in law in a holiday bungalow, go ahead. But don’t be upset afterwards, when you hear all the great stories from those who participated. After all, you got a warning.

    Details will follow later this year. DPO team is talking with international Pinball celebrities and manufacturers like Dutch Pinball and Heighway Pinball have already said they will come. Via Ministry of Pinball also JJP will also have a presence ofcourse as Stern to.

    AND OF COURSE…

    Of course still the tournaments will be there. After the Dutch victory in 2015 we challenge all the players from abroad to take it away from us, you will not succeed :-).

    So, follow http://dpo.nfvpinball.nl and our NFV-Facebookpage (https://www.facebook.com/nfvpinball) as more info will be revealed when available. The program will be filled in the coming months

    Want to see how DPO EXPO 2014&2015 looked like? See http://www.pinballnews.com/shows/dpo2014/index.html

    The minion pinball wasn't ready to go anyway,but we will have it done and playable by then,should be fun!
    The location is insane cool,this might be an epic year for dpo...ingrediants are there.

    #4 9 months ago

    we all missed the DPO in 2016, even if the open week-end in Venendal was nice
    good luck already to all the crew for the organisation
    will be there of course, for a lot of good reason as a pinball lover
    and trying to do better in the tournament than in 2015...

    It is with proud that we can announce that Kevin O'Connor will be present at DPO2017.

    Kevin is the man behind the artwork on many pinballs on not only modern games like Kiss (both Stern & Bally), Avatar, Walking Dead, Avengers, etc but also 'golden oldies' like Flash Gordon, Star Trek (Bally & Data East), Time Machine and many others. And let's not forget classics like LOTR & Monster Bash & Creature of the Black Lagoon.

    So very likely you have a pinball from him in your collection. So come over, meet Kevin and get a signature on your translite !!

    See complete list at https://pinside.com/pinball/archive/kevin-o-connor

    I'm excited! Earlier this year, I told @rensh that I couldn't attend DPO 2017 due to an important birthday party I have to attend. But it looks like I might make it there after all, for all of Saturday!

    Come say hi if you see me. You can recognise me by the Pinside logo ball helmet - Or, if I'm not wearing my helmet, by my Pinside t-shirt

    Looking forward to this event!

    By the way, for all international visitors: this could be a unique opportunity to visit PinisdeHQ. I will be throwing a Pinside party the evening before, Friday the 10th. My gameroom is a 30 minute drive from Schiphol Airport. All Pinsiders are welcome, let me know if you're interested. Pizza's and beer on me! And Alkmaar has some nice hotels too (e.g. The Amrath).

    The freeplay area is huge. There will be over 250 machines for certain! And still this number is rising! You should come. There will be great events, seminars and a lot of fun! Not just for tournament players.

    Great to read a few Americans are coming since there are so many shows in the States one does not need to cross the Pond anymore. It must be the sheer number of games and the slightly unusual building in a very usual shape :-).
    And we get the organiser of Americas second biggest pinball stage over to inspect our venue.
    Ed will feel at home straigth on. Please keep in mind that people who don't know you may address you in the Dutch language which has everything to do with your name Vanderveen (or back here it will be van der Veen). The good news is though that about 80% of the Dutch also know the English language.

    Just closed tournament qualification pool D. We are now over 180 registered players !!

    However, it’s not only for tournament players. With expected over 400 pinballs on free play plenty pins to play outside the tournament.

    So, hesitate no longer and get your tickets.

    Yep Wil, you are reading it correct.

    This is ofcourse if everything goes as planned and we get enough help with transport. For sure more than the first published 250 which already excited me. Beating Chicago expo is a piece of cake and we have TPF targeted and in sight

    Logistics and help is what is key now.

    Quoted from solarvalue:

    Sorry but no. The persons of Timeshock will be at the show but as visitors, not exhibitors.

    #45 9 days ago

    Wow! Should be great! Ordered tickets a while ago.

    #46 3 days ago

    Just updated the subscribed tournament players section, see https://www.nfvpinball.nl/ingeschreven-spelersregistered-players

    200 persons have now subscribed ! Only 50 spots left so why hesitate any longer to come to Europe's biggest pinball event?

    #47 13 hours ago

    Preparations for DPO 2017 have begun, tearing down approx 100 pinballs at the NFV clubhouse. Getting them ready for transport.

    Don’t miss it at 11-12 November.
