Pinsiders,

The Texas Pinball Festival will be a part of the 2013 Dallas Comic-Con as a part of our marketing and awareness campaign for the 2014 Texas Pinball Festival. Our display will be in the main lobby in between the exhibitor hall and escalators to the artists area. They expect more than 10,000 people to attend the show.

We will have several pinball machines on display both new and old set to free play for all 3 days of the event. We also just learned at Marc from Elevation Games is bringing his restored HERCULES pinball just to really blow away the attendees.

A vast majority of the people coming to the show this weekend either have never played pinball or have not played in a very long time. To this end the display serves a higher purpose of raising awareness and interest in pinball as a hobby. We are very proud to be a big part of this!

If you are in the area this weekend you should stop by and check out the event. Make sure to come by our booth and say hello.

In for the pic of 1000 people trying to play 9 machines. lol

It's great to see so many people rekindle the flame for pinball after 10+ years. I love being a part of things like this.

Good job promoting TPF! Great lineup, too.

No dates or location on the TPF banner advertisement??
Or am I too old school in assuming bit everyone will go to the website or Facebook page?

We designed the banner in a way specifically that it can be used for years to come. I thought it would be a better idea to have something that didnt become worthless in only a few months.

We have thousands of 4x6 double sided flyers on hand, on every machines play glass, and being handed out to players and participants. On that flyer all of the detailed information is included.

Ah, great point. That's why I'm not the marketing expert.
Hopefully, will get to join in some Pinball action with you on Wednesday.
