Pinball Expo returns to the Westin Chicago North Shore for the 35th anniversary in 2019, including the Stern Pinball factory tour, seminars, tournaments, vendors, large games rooms, exhibits and much more.
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.
