TechFest 26 To Be Held at MotorCity

Randy Fromm, publisher of Slot Tech magazine, has announced the opening of registration for his often-sold-out training event for slot machine technicians, TechFest. The event will be held Wednesday through Friday, November 14-16 at the MotorCity Casino in Detroit, Michigan.

“This is the final TechFest for 2012,” said Fromm. “I was asked by MotorCity’s management to bring TechFest to their property, but like all TechFests, the event is open to everyone, and all slot techs are invited. It will be a first-class event with all of the industry’s top technical instructors.”


The three-day program features technical presentations from JCM and MEI (bill validators), 3M Touch Systems (touch screens), FutureLogic and Ithaca Technologies (printers) and Ceronix (LCD monitors), as well as instructional sessions presented by Fromm.
