AmiCON - The Amiga Central Ohio Network is once again proud to host the
Midwest Amiga Exposition. Last year was the first year ever for this event
and all who were involved we very pleased with the results. Over 500
people attended the two day event that took place in Columbus, Ohio. Many
dealers who attended sold out of product in only the first day. Along with
such companies as Nova Design, Silent Paw Productions, and Wonder
Computers, many Amiga user groups also attended and rented table space to
showcase their talents. This year we expect close to 1000 people to attend
the event and many more vendors. We, at AmiCON, would welcome your
attendance at our show this year and sincerely hope that you can fit this
event into your schedule. Please let us know if you plan to attend as soon
as possible so that we can plan our floor layout or any
training/demonstrations you may be interested in doing.
Thank you for your continued support of the Amiga community.

rentals for Vendors & Dealers include 2 tickets good for admission both

AmiCON feels that showing new products to potential users is of utmost
importance to the Amiga community. Therefore we have provided a platform
for Vendors and Dealers to accomplish this. We believe these sessions
should be more than just advertisements. An informative session where
people interact with the product is an essential, and as such, we have
established a few guidelines:
A discounted rate of $75.00 for the second table (and every table rented
thereafter), is available if the Vendor/Dealer provides show attendees with
a training session in one of our several training areas set up for the
event. The training demonstration will be no less than 20 minutes in
length and must have prior approval by AmiCON. To qualify as a valid
session, Vendors/Dealers must provide a format that informs users about new
products and/or provides a step-by-step tutorial about the operation of a
product. The session must be staffed with presenter, who would be able to
answer questions from the audience about the product. Slide shows and
video taped demonstrations are welcome, but the session cannot consist of
these items only.
If you have any questions or concerns about a demonstration you would like
to do, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please explain your planned
demonstration in detail.
