Quoted from jfh:
I would have liked to see most of the vendors in another room, just because of the noise. As attendees we can come and go to take a break from the noise. A lot harder for the vendors to do. And there were a number of vendors/booths I would have liked to spend more time at but many times it was just too hard to hear.
I’m sure there are pros/cons to the combined vs. separated approach and don’t really know what would be best. I thought TPF was set up well and fairly easy to navigate (except the American Pinball area).
As a vendor, we don’t want people leaving the room or to be isolated from the rest of the show. We much prefer everything in a single room. It wasnt too loud where we were and I was able to sneak off every now and then to play a few games while my better half managed the booth.
It was one of our best shows ever, paying the price for that today.
Was nice to see our customers, meet new people and put faces to pinside names. Loved every minute of it, even at 12:45 am Saturday morning manning the booth until the close at 1am. That was a 19 hour day for us.
