APE 2016 Announcement
« on: August 31, 2015, 08:34:57 PM »


I am very pleased to officially announce the 7th annual Florida Arcade & Pinball Exposition.

Dates:
February 19th - 21st, 2016

Venue:
Mardi Gras Casino
831 North Federal Hwy
Hallandale Beach, FL 33009

About the venue:
Most of you may remember the Florida APE here back in 2012.
Although our last venue was extremely big, actually even too big for our true vision of recreating a nostalgic arcade experience, it came with multiple drawbacks for our unique event requirements that made it unfeasible to so many involved.
With that being said, Mardi Gras is very easy to get to, it offers its guests plenty of free parking just a few feet away, and easier accessibility for all exhibitors and vendors which help make the APE what it is today.

In this huge multi-level venue, it is planned for the entire arcade experience to flow in just a single level.
You will find full amenities within the venue: an upscale signature restaurant providing casual dining at its finest, a quick-bite cafe, and even a full liquor bar in the arcade.

Florida Supercon will once again also host a large array of console gaming stations in a separate, but adjoined area.
An even more amazing layout is in the works for all facets of the show. :)

More to come!

Thank you for all your continued support!

Being in a casino definitely had is plusses as far as food and other non pinball things to do.  Aside from the parking, I enjoyed last year's venue too.  For people bringing games I think this year should be a big improvement loading in and out.
