The 4th Annual D-L-P Gathering at Classic Gaming Expo 2003
Las Vegas, Nevada - August 9 & 10, 2003

Classic Gaming Expo 2003 was once again held at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Classic video game enthusiasts and many of the most famous pioneers of the video game industry gathered in Las Vegas for this event. At what has become the largest show dedicated to the preservation of video game history, attendees got the chance to experience the heritage of video games through exhibits, presentations by the people who built the industry, and hands-on play of classic games. Some of this year's celebrities were David Crane, Steve Cartwright, Warren Davis, Ed Rotberg, Tim Skelly, and the father of the video game industry, Nolan Bushnell.

About 60 arcade games set on free play were there for people to enjoy, including many laserdisc games from Steven Hertz's personal collection. Lots of the D-L-P Community and Staff were on-hand to enjoy the show. Below are a few pictures from CGE 2003.
