Remember how much fun you used to have playing Atari, Nintendo and all kinds of games on your computer? Well, you will have the rare opportunity to play these great games again at the Video Game Summit, Chicago’s premier video game trade show. In fact, several dealers in retro games will be on hand offering games, controllers, systems and memorabilia and will be prepared to buy or trade for the games you have held onto since you were a kid. Who knows, you might just have an Atari cartridge worth $1000 or more collecting dust in your attic.

The date is set for the Video Game Summit. On July 13th, 2019 at the Odeum in Villa Park, IL.
Last year was our biggest show yet and we have no doubt we will be even bigger this year. We already have 16 vendors that reserved their spot. If you would like to become a vendor this year, please visit the website and contact us.
