Southern-Fried Gaming Expo 2019 OFFICIAL Hype Thread (SFGE)
« on: February 19, 2019, 01:56:29 PM »
Hi Everyone!

The Southern-Fried Gaming Expo is back for our 6th-annual event in Atlanta, Georgia July 12-14, 2019! Everything you've come to know and love about our show will be back in full force this summer, but this year we're going to have EVEN MORE fun. That's right, in addition to the space we've been using at the gorgeous Renaissance Waverly, we just added an additional 36,000 square feet of exhibit space via the adjoining Cobb Galleria Centre! That means we can have...

- More fun events! (like the crowd-pleasing hit Hotlanta Eating Challenge)
- More dedicated gaming tournaments (2-person, blind Frogger, anyone?)
- More guest panels
- More vendors
- And yes...MORE GAMES!

If you've not yet been to SFGE before, I hope you'll consider making the trip! Hopefully testimonials from those who come year after year can win you over. But our event speaks for itself. Take a peek at this year's hype video using footage from last year. If you like what you see, snag a membership and book your hotel room today!

Hotel Reservations: http://southernfriedgameroomexpo.com/hotel/

If you've been to the show before, what are you looking forward to the most this year? Looking forward to seeing everyone. We can't do it without you!

Hi, you heard incorrectly. We are still having several tournaments. They are just not "Pinvasion" run by Bryan Broyles. Mark Jarzewiak, who served as tech the past couple years is running three tournaments. A Pin Golf and two fair-strike tourneys (along with a Women's Only event on Sunday). Not sure how this misinformation got out. It is true that Pinvasion is not returning as Bryan is focusing on his business (Portal Pinball), but he remains supportive and will be an exhibitor this year.

Tournaments remain an important part of our show. We have a facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2361036407554663/  and basic information easily accessible on our website here: http://southernfriedgameroomexpo.com/tournaments/

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns
