A look at Namco's booth at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2010

Namco America understands that the IAAPA Attractions Expo can be a very overwhelming experience. With so many games on display, attendees can quickly become confused as to which manufacturer made which game. Brochures can only do so much to explain the features and benefits of a game. To help lessen the confusion, we have created a brief video describing all of the games on display in our booth at the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2010. This video will be great for attendees that needed a quick refresh in memory of our games as well as people that couldn't make it out to the show. More...

Namco Brings the Party To "Amusement Expo"

While we all know times are tough, it was hard to find a face that was not smiling at the Namco booth during the recent Amusement Expo and Nightclub and Bar shows. Pac-Man's 30th birthday isn't for a few months but that didn't stop Namco from getting the party started early. The giant Pac-Man balloon hovering over the booth let everyone know where to find the best new products on the floor. Before the show even opened, the internet was buzzing over the YouTube teaser for Pac-Man Battle Royale, the first all new coin-op Pac-Man game to come along in decades. When the 4 live Pac-Men started running around the show giving away Mardi Gras beads and ramping up the party spirit, one show attendee commented, "It's about time someone started putting the fun back into our business"!
