    Preparations are well underway for this year's Zapcon, to be held the weekend of April 25-26! We'd love for you to be part of the show!


    Be a part of Zapcon by bringing arcade games or pinball machines! We had another huge show last year with approximately 350 games, lots of fun tournaments, exhibitions, and activities, and I hope we can count on your support to keep the momentum going for this year. As always, in exchange for contributing to the show you qualify for the following incentives:

    - A weekend pass for each working game you bring
    - All the benefits of pre-registration, including early admission
    - Access to the Contributor Only preview night (Friday, April 24)
    - A free Zapcon t-shirt if you bring 5 or more games
    - For each game you bring, you'll get a ticket for a drawing to win a FREE ARCADE GAME
    - An exclusive "contributor" keepsake name badge
    - A golden opportunity to sell or trade games

    Most importantly you’ll be part of the Zapcon team, and gain the respect and admiration of your peers that you so richly deserve!

    If you wish to contribute, simply send an email to kaydee.helm [at] zapcon [dot] com, and let us know what you'd like to commit to bringing.

    In previous years, Zapcon, Marco Specialties, and Stern Pinball have teamed up to offer show discounted Stern pinball machines for pre-sale. We hope to be able to do this again this year, and we will update you when we have final information about pricing and availability, as well as who to contact.


    Zapcon thrives on its volunteers! In exchange for five hours of your time, you get a weekend pass (including access to the contributor night on Friday April 24)! Email us at volunteer [at] zapcom [dot] com to help out in whatever way you can. You don’t need to be an expert in flippers or motherboards, either! We’re looking for folks to help check out games in the console lounge, make sure there are plenty of credits on arcade machines, and all sorts of other stuff. The more the merrier!

    Please get back to us and let us know what games you’d like to bring this year, and if you're interested in the Stern Pinball deal, or if you would like to be a volunteer.

    We take a lot of pride in our humble event, and we hope you do because it is YOUR event too. We can’t do it without you.

    Warm regards,
    The CGPS crew
