Events   Events : Commodore Vegas Expo v5 - less than 85 days away!
   posted by RobertB on 4-May-2009 4:33:06 (99643 reads)
The Commodore Vegas Expo, a.k.a. CommVEx, is less than 85 days away! July 24 and 25 are coming 'round the corner! To celebrate this fifth year of the show and the 25th anniversary of the Commodore Plus/4 and Commodore 16 computers, we are making the event extra-special this time. Our headliner is CBM engineer, Dave Haynie, who has worked on the Plus/4, Commodore 128, and Amiga computers. Come on in and meet Dave, ask your questions, listen to his CBM behind-the-scene anecdotes, and get his autograph.

Read more...


Not only is Dave Haynie attending the show but CommVEx friend and CBM engineer Bil Herd has arranged an interview with Chuck Peddle, CBM engineer and father of the personal computer. The details are still being worked out at this time, but the Chuck Peddle interview could be a pre-recorded video/Skype chat or a live telephone call-in to CommVEx.

Gracing the CommVEx room again will be Newtek engineer Jeri Ellsworth, who will apprise us of her Commodore and non-Commodore projects.

For the full list of guests and presentations, exhibits, and raffle prizes planned so far, go to the CommVEx website at

http://www.portcommodore.com/commvex

or go to the CommVEx forum at

http://www.commodore.ca/forum and click on ComVEX

By the way, if you come to CommVEx and plan to stay at the CommVEx hotel, the Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, make your reservations before June 24 in order to get special pricing on your room. Mention CommVEx when you call the hotel at 1 800 634-6575 ext. 2345.

Sincerely,
Robert Bernardo

Sounds like an event that can gather a lot of retro fans!

Minimig HW and other modern HW & Amigalike OSs should be there as well, to extent our userbase...

If I can convince the SCCAN member who has the Minimig to attend the show, then Minimig will be there. :)

This is great news, have you guys let Retro Gamer Magazine know about the expo? They're always advertising upcoming retro gaming/computing events from around the world. You can contact them from their site at http://www.retrogamer.net

It's good to see you're trying to advertise and gather interest early on, giving people a chance to plan the trip. Hopefully it'll be a successful and fun event for Commodore users of all kinds.

Bil Herd wants a *live* Skype presentation, saying that Chuck Peddle would have no problem with that. So, I will contact the hotel and get a fast connection into the CommVEx room. Also, I'll get a hardwire telephone connection, just in case. :)
