Pinball Expo is the brain child of Rob Berk who grew up playing pinball. His dream was to recognize his heroes – the pinball designers and artists that created the games he loved. With the help of Bill Kurtz and Mike Pacak, Pinball Expo became a reality taking place in Chicago, the home of pinball. Founded in 1985, Pinball Expo is the longest-running event dedicated to pinball. This event is open to the public. Go to www.pinballexpo.net for more information…Find out more »
