AmigaFest 99 Update

AmigaFest99 - The Show within a Show at Dayton's Computerfest®

Things are happening in the Amiga Community!

New revelations at World of Amiga and AmiWest, along with the first public display of mock-ups of the next generation machines. AmigaFest99, the show within a show, at Computerfest®, will be the first opportunity to see and purchase a lot of these new products in the eastern part of North America. Computerfest®, one of the country's largest computer shows, will be held at Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio on 28 & 29 August. Tickets are $8.00 if purchased in advance or $10.00 at the door which is for both days. Tickets at the door will be $8.00 on Sunday.

O.S.. 3.5 will be formally released the weekend before AmigaFest99 in Australia and will go on sale in North America at the same time. AmigaFest99 will be the first show where it will be available here. So don't miss your chance to get it. AmigaFest99 will be the first opportunity for the users to see and purchase a lot of new products announced at the earlier shows 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 two Amiga 1200s and several other items to give away. Amiga prizes are also being donated by other sources too, so don't miss this chance to win Amiga goodies. You could be one of two lucky showgoers to win an A1200!

AmigaFest99 is a unique opportunity for Amiga Users.

  1. It will provide you an opportunity to see and purchase many of the new Amiga products.
  2. It will give 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 unbelievable 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 will be held Saturday evening after the show closes. It will be held at Bullies Sports Bar and Grille, in Tipp City, Ohio, just a short jog up the Interstate from the show. It will be informal so we can dine together and socialize afterward. It will be pay as you go, order your own meals and other refreshments. No formal presentations are planned, unless we have visitors from Amiga, who would be welcome to speak to the gathering.

We have scheduled two, two hour Amiga forums in the seminar rooms, one for Saturday and one for Sunday. If Amiga executives are present these forums will be turned over to them. Nova Design also has a session scheduled to speak on their products. Additional Amiga presentations are welcome, in fact we are looking for more, 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 reserve the rooms.

The exhibitors that are currently committed to AmigaFest 99 include:

Compuquick Media Center
FWD Computers
Dan's Deals
E. S. Productions
Nova Design
Amigan St Louis - Bob Sharp
North Coast Amiga User Group
Eric Wyatt - Toaster/Flyer Demo

Now is the time, AmigaFest99 is the place! Exhibit, demonstrate, or sell, there is no better place than AmigaFest99/Computerfest®. Cost is only $60 per table and that gives you access to 30,000 attendees. We are expecting about the same volume of Amiga people as the other midwest Amiga shows have drawn. 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 to see the equipment on sale that, while not the most recent or up to date for the PC crowd, will be more than up to the task that any Amiga user might have.

AmigaFest99 at Computerfest® is a unique opportunity both for the user as well as the vendor and other exhibitors. Don't miss it!
