VCF PNW: Second call for Exhibitors and Speakers

Postby Brutman » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:49 pm

Special note: There is no PCjr exhibit yet and I won't be able to have my own exhibit because I'm organizing the show. I need somebody who wants to show off a PCjr to register as an exhibitor! :-)

----

In case you missed it we (the Vintage Computer Federation) is putting together a Vintage Computer Festival (VCF PNW) at the Living Computer Museum+Labs in Seattle. We are actively looking for exhibitors and speakers for this new show.

The show will be held February 10th and 11th, 2018. We are not planning to charge for admission to the show so visitors will be able to enjoy the museum, the exhibits, speakers and the consignment area all for the normal cost of museum admission.

We would like to get exhibitor registrations wrapped up by the end of November so that we can move to the next stage of planning. If you have an idea for an exhibit and would like to hang out at the museum for two days talking vintage computers then consider signing up today. Have an interesting topic for a presentation? We need those too ... Newbies need not be scared; I'm new to this as well.

More information can be found at http://vcfed.org/wp/festivals/vintage-c ... northwest/ . Please email me directly if you have questions or need encouragement.

VCF PNW (Feb 2018): Last call for Exhibitors and Speakers

Postby Brutman » Sun Nov 26, 2017 4:31 pm

(Special note: there is still no PCjr exhibit! Oh the horror!)

Where: Living Computers: Museum+Labs (Seattle, WA, USA)
When: February 10th and 11th, 2018
Registration deadline: December 10th, 2017 (About 2 weeks left)

We have about 15 registered exhibitors now. We are looking for a few more to fill things out and to ensure that if somebody drops out that the show doesn't look too thin. The exhibits span a wide range so it won't be a pure 8 bit gaming or a DEC heavy iron show.

If you are procrastinating about being an exhibitor then it is time to register ... If I can answer questions to help you decide then email me. This is our first time in Seattle; the bar is low so don't be too worried about having the perfect exhibit.

We are still looking for speakers too; the floor is pretty open. If you did something cool during your career or just want to share aspects of the hobby with others, this is a great place to do it. (I especially enjoyed Lyle's talk on repair and restoration at VCF West.)

Interested or know somebody who is? Check out at http://vcfed.org/wp/festivals/vintage-c ... northwest/ . Please email me directly if you have questions or need encouragement.



Regards,
