Andrew Elia writes: Once again, the UK will be the centre of Amiga attention this summer. While we are awaiting confirmation of the exact dates, we can confirm that the show will be happening in late June/early July. This should give overseas visitors ample time to pop across the pond to visit the fabulous AmiWest show on 29th & 30th July as well!

Why are we going for a summer slot ? Quite simply because Amiga have asked us to book those dates. You can be sure that they have something exceptional to show this time round... but you'll just have to trust us because we're keeping extra quiet until then! As always, the show is taking place with Amiga's full support, and is being organised with the assistance of UK user groups, magazines, and Infinite Frontiers.

In order to make the show a far more central occasion, it is likely that we will move the event to Birmingham. This will make the travelling distance fairer for everyone, and make it considerably easier for dealers to get to. As a side-effect, we're confident that we'll be able to offer an even lower stand hire price. Expect to see some huge stands, as well as...

  • Games competitions
  • Shareware registration
  • Seminars
  • How-to sessions
  • Helpdesk
  • Stands for user groups
  • AAA Awards
The official World Of Amiga website will shortly be updated with details, so make sure you visit it frequently! We will be providing on-line ticket ordering again, and will shortly activate the system so that you can reserve your tickets early.

Tickets will be priced at £7.50 for adults, and £5.00 for under 14s. Families of two adults and two children (under 14) enter for only £15.00! Additionally, for people wishing to attend on both days of the show, there will be a special booth on Saturday that will sell tickets to existing ticket holders for Sunday's show for a mere £2.00 (£1.00 for under 14s).

Keep an eye on the website! Further details will be posted there shortly.

Hopefully they will not schedule/reschedule this convention for the same weekend as AmiWest 2000. It was very poor taste to damage the smaller convention in Sacramento, California, USA last year by taking away vendors, guests, and speakers. The video conferencing link did help, however it was not an adequate solution. AmiWest announced its schedule and paid their money first (just like they did this year). I was upset at degraded support received by the Sacramento organizations due to this conflict. I am not affiliated in any way with AmiWest - just concerned (again).

*DOH* Late June, early July, that's a bit annoying... I'll be trekking across Australia and New Zealand, so looks like I'm going to miss this.
Any similar events in Australia around this time?

Great news! The last amiga show i went to was when AF hired out Wembley Exhibition centre!
But does anyone know if there will be free stands for user groups like there was last year?

I'm just hoping it stays in London; it is so easy to get to from Brighton. But hey ho, if they must please the masses! ;)
