Billy MitchellWe are thrilled to welcome Billy Mitchell as one of our featured guest speakers for the 2014 Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo! Mr. Mitchell is well known among geeks and non-geeks alike.

Setting himself apart as a fierce competitor, Billy was named “Video Game Player of the Century” at the 1999 Tokyo game show and received a special award presented  by Namco founder Masaya Nakamura for the first-ever “perfect” game of Pac-Man. Mr. Mitchell has also starred in the films Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade and King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. To this day, Billy Mitchell continues to score world records and promote gaming for a new generation.
