Namco + Dead Heat = IAAPA SHOW Success!
December 1, 2010 - Elk Grove Village, IL Namco America, Inc. is happy to report a very successful IAAPA Attractions Expo 2010 show. Record breaking orders were taken during the show for their newest arcade driver, Dead Heat. Boasting itself as the first and only arcade driver with social networking, all eight seats of Dead Heat were hopping during the four-day trade show. As players left the game with smiles, Namco America staff were also smiling as collection reports were pouring in and showing that Dead Heat is the #1 driver in locations coast to coast. To celebrate Dead Heat's success at IAAPA, Namco staff participated in the 2010 IAAPA Charity 5K Fun Run & 1K Walk supporting Give Kids The World. "Team Dead Heat" as the Namco staff called themselves, woke up early on Thursday to help raise money for the charity event. Frank Cosentino, Namco America Senior VP stated “The IAAPA show is a physically tough week on our staff. The fact that 20 of them from Namco USA, Europe and Japan got up early and volunteered their time and effort for the kids makes me so proud of our group. I want to thank everyone of them again for making IAAPA one of our best shows ever!”
