AmigaSoc UK User Group Plans Trip To Cologne Show

AmigaSoc does Cologne II: This time it's personal

AmigaSoc is organising a trip to Cologne for Computer 98. We'd therefore like to extend an invitation to all Amigans in the UK to come along. We're aiming to try and offer a cut-price trip (including accomodation, where possible, but on a first come, first served basis). Presently we're only able to deal with user groups (and also developers/retailers) primarily for convenience... but also to encourage people to join their local user group.

Our choice for accomodation is the Hotel Berg (, who are offering quite an aggressive discount for groups. If you wish to stay somewhere else, you'll have to organise that yourself (but by all means, we're happy to include you in the flights). For other hotels in Cologne, have a look at Our chosen airline is British Midland who are also offering some good deals for groups, although Eurostar is also a possibility.

In total, people can expect to pay less than 200 pounds for the flight and the accomodation. The accomodation only includes bed and (a fairly minimal) breakfast.

We will require people to pay up front in order to book the flight and the accomodation. Naturally, AmigaSoc will not make any money from this. We are purely interested in encouraging as many people from the UK to come to Cologne this year as possible.

AmigaSoc visited Cologne for the first time last year, and we firmly believe that if this show is anything like that, you'll be kicking yourself if you miss it. Imagine a show like the generic computer shows that used to be held in Earl's Court in the 80s. Imagine a show where 70% of those stands have Amiga stuff in there. Plus, we at AmigaSoc certainly don't want to miss any big announcements.

We require all payments and bookings to reach us no later than the 20th September 1998.
