AmigaFest 99 The Show Within a Show at Dayton Computerfest

Announcing : The North American Release of O. S. 3.5

AmigaFest 99 (formerly referred to as Amiga Expo 99) at the Dayton Computerfest®, one of the country's largest computer shows, will be held at Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio on 28 & 29 August. It is a show not to be missed for Amiga users and the excitement continues to grow.

O.S. 3.5 is to be formally released the weekend before AmigaFest 99 at the Amiga Show in Australia. While it will go on sale in North America at the same time, AmigaFest 99 will be the first Computer Show here where it will be available. We are seeing a lot of new products being announced now and this will be the first opportunity for the users to see them and for the developers and manufacturers to display them in the eastern half of the country. Don't miss this opportunity!

This show is being fully supported by Amiga. They have kindly supplied some items for prizes to be given away. We have two Amiga 1200s and several Mice, Pads, and posters to give away. We are also in discussion with Amiga Inc. executives about the possiblity of their attendance. Don't miss this opportunity either!

AmigaFest 99 is a unique opportunity for Amiga Users:

  1. It will provide you an opportunity to see and purchase all of the new Amiga products.
  2. It will provide you access to a concentration of Amiga Vendors so you can get the Amiga gear you need/want, often at special show prices.
  3. It will provide you access to an incredible selection of general computer equipment such as drives, storage media, printers, etc., at incredible prices.
  4. As with all Amiga Shows, the opportunity to spend time socializing with fellow Amiga Users and Luminaries.

An Amiga Get Together off-site, since there are no facilities except snack bars at Hara Arena, is in the planning stages for Saturday night. It will be informal at a facility where we can dine together with a social time following. It will be pay as you go, order your own meals and other refreshments. No formal presentations, unless we have visitors from Amiga, who would be welcome to speak to the gathering.

We are planning two Amiga forums in the seminar rooms. Additional Amiga presentations are welcome, however, we must commit the rooms before others do. Anyone desiring to give a presentation at the show please contact Ron Schwartz as soon as possible so we can get the rooms committed.

The exhibitors that are currently committed to AmigaFest 99 include:

Compuquick Media Center
FWD Computers
Dan's Deals
E. S. Productions

Tentative exhibitors:

Nova Design

We have also had initial contact from other vendors, some individuals considering a table to sell some of their old gear, and several User Groups. Vendors, Developers, User Groups and individuals considering exhibiting, demonstrating, or selling, there is no better place than AmigaFest 99/Computerfest®. Cost is only $60 per table and that gives you access to 30,000 attendees. It is surprising too, how many of those are Amiga Users who are not in the mainstream and do not get the magazines or go to the Amiga shows, but come here to get the bargain equipment. It is also amazing how many people with little money find what they can afford in a PC is useless, but an old Amiga, for cheap, is still capable of doing amazing things.

AmigaFest 99 at Computerfest® is a unique opportunity both for the user as well as the vendors and other exhibitors. It's a great time to be an Amiga supporter. Don't miss this opportunity to spread the word! SEE YOU IN DAYTON!!
