The 3rd annual ZAPCON is right around the corner! Are you ready?
If you haven’t heard yet, we outgrew the Renaissance and are now at the Mesa Convention Center. That means twice as much space, more power than we could ever use, FREE PARKING, a WAAAAAYYY better load-in/out situation and cheaper hotel accommodations at the neighboring Phoenix Marriott Mesa (make reservations prior to March 16th to get the ZapCon rate).
ZapCon needs YOU! for every working game you bring you get a weekend pass, a super-awesome exclusive personalized badge & lanyard, early access to the game room, and our eternal gratitude for being an important part of the AZ arcade/pinball community. If you have games but no way to get them to the show, there may be a couple of options. I will do my best to put you in touch with other folks that may have room on their truck, or that might be willing to split the cost of a rental 2-3 ways. Just PM me your actual name, email, phone number, and we’ll get to work on it.
We’re also looking for sponsors/advertisers and vendors. If you’d like to get your name or business in front of the AZ classic gaming community, this is great and affordable way to do it. PM me if you or someone you know is interested.

-Pinball Tournament! As always the AZ Pinball Players League will be hosting an IFPA pinball tournament. Format details will be available closer to the event.
