FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 8, 1997 - The Gateway Computer Show Amiga 97 which
will be held in St. Louis, Missouri on March 15 & 16, 1997,
is gaining in momentum and growing in size, according to its sponsors,
the Gateway Amiga Club, Inc. (GAC), also located in St. Louis.
The excellent organizational and promotional efforts of the venerable
St. Louis club are paying off greatly this year and the show promises
to be their best ever, according to industry observers. "Many
shows do not go to the efforts these folks do to promote themselves.
GAC has pulled out the stops and is utilizing direct mail, flyers,
the Internet and television as well," said Kevin Hisel, of
the Champaign-Urbana Computer Users Group (CUCUG) another club
located in neighboring Illinois which is also promoting the show
on their popular web site, The Amiga Web Directory.
A long list of Amiga-oriented companies have already committed
to attending the show. According to show organizer Bob Scharp,
the confirmed list includes Amiga Report Magazine, Compuquick
Media Center, Intangible Assets Manufacturing, MoneySmart-Grafica
Software, NewTek, Nova Design, Oregon Research, QuikPak, Silent
Paw Productions and SoftLogik Publishing Corporation with more
"We also just received word from two more companies: Ozware,
makers of unique video editing tools designed for NewTek's Flyer
will exhibit. In addition, P.J. Nordmann - FX will also exhibit
their fine video work at the show. P.J. Nordmann is the company
producing the television ads for the Gateway Computer Show - Amiga97,"
In addition to the companies, show attendees will include famous
Amiga personalities from all over the world.
According to information from GAC's web site, popular Amiga video
hardware/software maker NewTek has agreed to sponsor classes in
some of its popular products and Amiga computer manufacturer QuikPak
is expected to donate an Amiga 4000T (Tower) computer to the show
as a door prize.1
"CUCUG plans to attend Amiga 97 again in full force. We'll
be chartering a huge, luxury-equipped bus and make the trip down
to St. Louis this year just as we did for the last show. Our members
had a great time and we are anticipating an even better show this
year," Hisel said.
Paul Nordmann, head of P.J. Nordmann - FX stated, "I can't
wait for the show. It is going to be very exciting!"
"With your help, we can make the Amiga shine, and the entire
community know that Amiga is not only back, but on the attack,"
Scharp commented about the show.
