Hello Pinside! It's time to start getting excited for yet another awesome time in Atlanta this summer for the 4th-annual Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo June 9-11, 2017! If you've followed the growth of the show, then you are no doubt aware how far we've come in bringing a world-class event to the Southeast in such a short amount of time. This year's event will continue the tradition of an action-packed, and fun-filled weekend for the whole family in Atlanta, GA.
We can't reveal all of our cards yet, but we have already made a few announcements and have more in the works. Here's a few things we're happy to share about this year's event:
1. Hey Bro, I heard you like pinball. We've got you covered. Tons of games (again), a PAPA circuit pinball tournament, and great guests make for another awesome show. Marco Specialties will be back with the newest Sterns, and announced guests include Dirty Donny and Charlie Emery of Spooky Pinball, but we have even more we haven't announced yet, so be on the lookout.
2. Same amazing venue, even more space! Last year when we moved to the Renaissance Waverly we doubled our previous space. This year, we're adding another 5K square foot ballroom to the mix. Also, we're right across from the brand-new Atlanta Braves stadium, so you can even fit in a Braves game during your visit!
3. The other stuff besides pinball. We've enjoyed adding music and bands to SFGE, and we'll have some great performers this year too. The addition of Tabletop gaming continues and can provide for some great downtime from all the other games. We have a full-blown film fest this year (details to come), and because wrestling was such a hit, we're making it a 2-night affair.
