Events   Events : Amiga 30th US - Let's get this party started
   posted by tekmage on 16-May-2015 18:25:50 (1393 reads)
For Immediate Release:

Mountain View California
May 14th, 2015

After a successful Kickstarter campaign and with the help of corporate sponsors the Amiga 30th Organizing team is happy to announce a full two day exhibition in conjunction with the banquet.


Starting in April we launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a banquet to honor the 30th anniversary of the Amiga Computer at the Computer History Museum. That successful campaign ensured our banquet. Now, with the help of A-Eon and Friend Software Labs we will be able to expand the event to include TWO full days of exhibit hall.

The exhibit hall will feature nearly 20 exhibits and exhibitors. The main attraction will be a massive historical display of 30 years of the Amiga. From the Lorraine prototypes to the A-Eon X1000 nearly every Amiga model and system inspired by the Amiga will be represented. We are working to ensure each system will be running and usable. In addition to the released models are also working to secure rare prototypes such as the A3000+. Friend Software Labs will have a special announcement and presentations at the event. Along with the Amiga systems we will offer a games zone where folks can play the great classic Amiga games including some 8 player games and tournaments.

Along the Amiga system displays we will also have many Amiga related companies and projects including Individual Computers, Amiga Forever, and Viva Amiga. The Sacramento Amiga User Group will be assisting with the historical display and presenting an AmiWest table.

We will have a theater area for presentation during the event with speakers covering all the history of the Amiga. There will also be an area for art, photographs, and other displays.

The Amiga Computer has impacted and influenced so much of modern technology. Join us for a weekend of celebrations and events to honor the legacy of the Amiga and the great Amiga community.

Tickets on sale now on www.amiga30.com.

Party On!

Amiga 30th Organizing Team

I am going to make sure MorphOS is represented at this event, but would like to ask for any help from the MorphOS Dev. Team members to send me informational handouts that I will print at my own expense and distribute to interested show attendees. I would also like to ask if there are any USA MorphOS users who can volunteer to man the MorphOS table at the event with me, as I will also have other responsibilities during the setup and tear down of the show, and possibly other responsibilities during the show that could take me away from the MorphOS display table.

This is going to be a great event, so I hope to see as many of you as possible during the two day show, and/or at the banquet dinner.
