GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS
PINBALL EXPO, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
The longest-running pinball event is the Pinball Expo (USA) which has run 32 consecutive years as of its 33rd annual event held in Chicago, Illinois, USA on 11-15 October 2017.
As long as we have fingers that we can press a button, pinball will be fun.
As one of the most prestigious pinball events in the world, the Pinball Expo has been chosen by many pinball manufacturers as the site for official "world premieres" of new pinball titles.
In 1984 Rob Berk put together a questionnaire than ran in Steve Young’s publication called Silverball Quarterly. The questionnaire basically said, ‘We are considering doing a national pinball convention, are you interested, would you come? The resounding answer was yes; it would be a good idea. It has always been in the Chicagoland area or Chicago suburb.
PINBALL EXPO 2020 ANNOUNCEMENT
Dear Friends of Pinball Expo,
The Governor of Illinois mandated all events of our size to remain closed until the state moves to Phase 5, which includes having a vaccination for Covid-19. Illinois, like many other states, is currently in Phase 4. We knew we had to take matters into our own hands, and we did. In keeping with the tradition of having a yearly show, we are excited to announce that we will be having a free virtual event, to be held October 15th – 17th, 2020. Included will be virtual factory tours, seminars, vendor showcases, and much more! Stay tuned to our website (www.pinballexpo.com), Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more information.
If you booked your 2020 room through our Pinball Expo block of rooms, the Westin hotel will automatically cancel your reservation and no charges will be applied. If you need to speak to someone at the hotel directly, please call them at 1-847-777-6500. In addition, if you paid for any event packages, tours, seminars, etc. through our website, you will receive a full refund.
We hope you can tune in for what will be a spectacular, action-packed, pinball fest! Thank you for your support and we wish you continued safety and good health.
Robert Berk and the Pinball Expo Team
