Posted in the JAX subforum but since it is a pretty big announcement I wanted to post here too. 

Press Release – RetroJAX 2019
“It’s on like Donkey Kong.”

Jacksonville, Florida – August 9, 2018 – Jax Arcade & Pinball Expo and Retrorama Collectibles have formed a strategic partnership to deliver Northeast Florida’s premier retro pop culture exposition, RetroJAX. This alliance is designed to bring fan favorites from both shows together through a blend of classic pinball and arcade gaming, vintage collectibles, and pop culture fun!

RetroJAX comes to Jacksonville, Florida at the Morocco Shrine Auditorium the weekend of March 8-10, 2019. This venue boasts over 30,000 square feet of event space allowing the show to offer exhibitors, vendors, and fans an experience larger, richer and more diverse than ever before.

Discounted advanced tickets will be offered beginning in September 2018, with VIP and Early Bird packages available to a limited number of guests. RetroJAX event staff are already working with exhibitors and vendors regarding event space bookings and can be reached through the web addresses listed below.

About Jax Arcade & Pinball Expo
Jax Arcade & Pinball Expo was formed in 2013 by Steven Moritz and Doug Titus with a focus on sharing classic arcade games and pinball with the public. Jax Arcade & Pinball Expo is a 501c charity that donates its proceeds to local charities Dreams Come True and Project Pinball. Over two successful Expo’s in 2014 and 2015, Jax Arcade & Pinball Expo has donated over $7000.00 in show earnings to the two charities and plan to continue that trend in 2019.

About Retrorama Collectibles
Retrorama Collectibles was founded in 2012 by a group of collectors who wanted to see collectibles shows return to the North Florida area.  Since that time, they have sponsored over a dozen events ranging from single day to weekend long extravaganzas.  The heart of each of these events is the Retrorama Collectibles Show which specializes in bringing together vendors from all over the state of Florida and beyond to offer attendees the finest selection of nostalgia themed collectible merchandise the area has ever seen.
