Arcade Contribution FAQ

WHAT TYPE OF GAMES ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for original or conversion arcade cabinets, pinball machines, racing cabinets. Please no mame cabinets or 60-in-1 cabs

 

WHEN DO I LOAD IN MY GAMES?

The best day to load in your game is on Friday between 9am and 5pm. The event opens to the public at 10am on Saturday. You do have the option to load in on Saturday morning between 7am and 9:30am but keep in mind that the machine must be loaded in by 9:30am the latest.

We highly recommend that you load in your game on Friday to avoid all of the other exhibitors who will be loading on Saturday morning.

 

HOW LONG MUST MY GAME STAY AT THE EXPO?

If you bring a machine you agree to have the machine up and running for the entire expo. The expo ends at 6pm on Sunday and your machine can be loaded out at the time. We may also have the option to do a Monday load out. If you sell your machine prior to the end of the show your buyer must pick up after the show.

 

WHAT IS THE CHECK IN PROCESS?

When you arrive on Friday or Thursday morning you will be greeted by either venue staff or expo staff who will direct you to the side of the building for load in. The load in area has double doors on ground level and the arcade machine area is within 25 feet of the load area. Staff will take your name and the name(s) of the machines you have brought. They will be plugged in and verified that they are in working condition. You will also receive your raffle ticket(s), free passes and T-Shirt/Pins at this time.

If you have any banners or signs you would like to hang in the arcade room they should be hung up at load in time and not while the event is in progress.

 

IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD DO WITH MY MACHINES PRIOR TO COMING TO THE SHOW?

All machines should be tested and in good working condition and wiped down to make sure they are clean. All games need to be set to FREE PLAY. If you machine does not have free play it should be loaded up with as many credits as possible the day of the event or a button should be installed to activate the credits. Also make sure the sound is at a decent level and not too loud.

 

CAN I SELL MY MACHINE AT THE EXPO?

Absolutely! By bringing your machine to RWX you are reaching thousands of potential customers. You may place either your own sign or one provide to you by the expo with your name, phone number and price on the machine. Please understand that your buyer must pick up the machine after the event. You may also enter your machine into our high end premium auction which will take place on Saturday evening.
