NAMCO REPORTS ON IAAPA EXCITEMENT
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL - IAAPA has officially passed and NAMCO America is proud to announce their most successful show in quite a few years. The company reports record sales taken during the show and more are continuing to pile in. NAMCO pulled out all the stops with an incredible exhibit showcasing over 40 games on their 2,700 square foot trade show booth. The electricity in the booth was tremendous as location owners and operators tried out the 8 brand new games that were shown as well as production versions of some products that debuted at earlier shows. "When you have a great product mix, enthusiastic staff and customers looking for new games and attractions to upgrade their locations, it's a recipe for a great show," says West Regional Sales Representative, Erik Gilly.
The NAMCO booth was a one-stop shop at the show this year with products ranging from prize redemption to ticket redemption, from video arcade games to full blown amusement park attractions. This IAAPA show launched the beginning of NAMCO's 'Fun-To-Win' lineup that includes ticket redemption and prize redemption games that are more than just your typical ticket spitters. The new lineup includes Pac-Man Ghost Bowling, Pac-Man Basket, Ball Spectacular, Goal Line Rush, Triple Turn and Pac-Man Smash for the ticket redemption lineup. Drop the Hook joins NAMCO's top sellers, BarBerCut Lite and Dunk Tank Prize, as the newest prize redemption game. NAMCO also showcased their extensive merchandise line-up that includes licensed plush and electronics; a perfect complement to their prize redemption games.
Two of the game manufacturer's new standouts, Pac-Man Smash and Dark Escape 4D, were by far the biggest hits at the show. Both of these games go far beyond their predecessors in their respective categories. Pac-Man Smash is an entirely new style of air hockey that has redefined the traditional game. One customer exclaimed, “Never in my life have I stopped at a booth for an air hockey game.” With its innovative multi-player, multi-puck action, show goers couldn't resist. Early orders of Pac-Man Smash have left NAMCO predicting the game to be a top seller for years to come. Dark Escape 4D stole the spotlight from all the other video and prize redemption games at IAAPA by winning the 2012 Brass Ring award for Best New Product. NAMCO continues to be the top innovator in the industry and Dark Escape 4D shows just how far they've come. "It's a one of a kind thrill that will have your customers lining up to play week in and week out," says Steve Ignarski, North East Regional Sales Representative.
The buying season is here and NAMCO America has what customers need as they restock their locations with the newest and hottest games. For more information about NAMCO and all of their products shown at IAAPA please visit
