New Website Launch - Feedback Welcomed
« on: September 13, 2018, 08:55:03 AM »
Even though tickets won't go on sale until 9/21/2018, the newly revised Jax Arcade Expo / RetroJAX site is up and running.

Please feel free to check it out. I'd love to hear any feedback you have on layout, color, ease of navigation, etc.

Also, for those of you interested in attending next Spring, please make sure you check out the Exhibitor Page. We are offering some lucrative incentives to make sure we can fill up the HUGE event space!

Thanks for looking!

The site looks good. The only note I have is the text on exhibits type get blended with the dividing cells. With the divider and the text being white, it can break the flow. Perhaps a bordered text or slightly different color.

Also, I have game transport issues at the moment so I'm not sure if I can bring anything, but I will defiantly volunteer for whatever is needed at the event.

If I can get help with transport I can bring our Bowl O Rama and maybe a pin or two.

I am currently considering an option where RetroJAX pays for a rental truck for the weekend and someone (a trusted volunteer) from the Orlando area drives it around and picks up games from Orlando area collectors and brings them to the show for the weekend. This is going to require a good bit of trust from those exhibitors AND those exhibitors would not be eligible for the cash incentives we are offering (because that cash would go toward the truck rental), but it could work if we found the right group of people.

Still kicking this idea around -I would love it if something like this could be worked out as I know there are a lot of collectors that would love to show off their collections, but simply don't have a truck or a trailer.

Thanks for you feedback on the wesbsite. I'll look at it right now. I'll also add you to our volunteer list and Doug will be in touch with you as the show date approaches!

Brandon,

We are thrilled that you want to get involved. We'd love to have you bring some games to the show!!!

Please make sure you check out the Exhibitor Perks page on our website. Maybe one of our "CASH MONEY" options would help you defray the costs of renting a truck or trailer?

Would you offer a pickup service for in JAX persons as well?

We are trying NOT to have to do this. It is extremely difficult to set up for a show, load all of our own personal games, AND then try to run around and pick up other collector's games as well.

If we were short on games, this might be an option we would consider (but hoping not to have to).

Please make sure you check out our exhibitor perks page - maybe one of our cash options might help you offset the costs of renting a small U-Haul trailer for the weekend.
