Long-term professionals in the coin-operated games and amusements industry will be honoured at a special ‘Veterans Lunch’ at January’s EAG International Expo to be held at London’s ExCeL.
Organised by Coin-op Community magazine, the Veterans Lunch is open to any person who has been involved in the coin-op industry for 30 years or more.
The gathering has been planned to be a valuable opportunity for seasoned industry professionals to take a moment from busy schedules to relax, enjoy each other’s company and perhaps reflect on latest industry trends.
Organiser Steph Norbury said:
“I am very honoured to have been asked to organise the Veterans Lunch. People have contributed to the growth of this vibrant industry so it is great that they can come together during the EAG show.
“The event is for anyone who has been involved in the industry for 30 years or more and although that doesn’t include me yet, if I have to crash my own party – so be it!”
Echoing those sentiments, EAG Expo Chairman Martin Burlin said:
“While we are really excited by the dramatic expansion of EAG International Expo, it is really important to keep sight of all the long-serving people whose talent and inspiration has kept the coin-operated industry so buoyant and healthy. I am looking forward to attending the Veterans Lunch and catching up with many old friends.”
