RISC OS show details for 2005By Chris Williams. Published: 1st Jan 2005, 02:34:26 | Permalink | Printable
Pencilled in for Feb and MayThe organisers of annual RISC OS events have already confirmed details of shows in February and May.
The organisers of the Wakefield shows, the WROCC, in a statement said they "are pleased to announce that the 10th Wakefield Show will take place over the weekend of 21/22 May 2005. This is the premier and only two day show in the RISC OS calendar."
The organisers of the RISC OS South West show, held in February, have also published event details on their website.
Last year's Wakefield 2004 show was voted the best event of the year by the drobe.co.uk readership. This year's show will feature the usual prize draw and show theatre, a free mini-bus service for connecting national trains to the venue, and a 'small developer area'. If you wish to exhibit at the event, contact the organisers now to get a show information pack.
The 2005 Wakefield show is sponsored by MW Software, Advantage Six, APDL and 3QD (formerly VirtualAcorn). Chris Hughes continues to be the event's chief coordinator, who has kept the show running for the WROCC despite ill health in previous years. Some exhibitors at the December Midlands show expressed concern over whether or not Wakefield 2005 would happen, commenting that it would be down to Chris and the WROCC to decide if it goes ahead.
The venue for this year is the familiar home of the Wakefield show, the Thornes Park Athletics Stadium in Wakefield, UK. More details on the event are in the announcement below.
Meanwhile, the first RISC OS event of 2005 will be the RISC OS South West show, scheduled for Saturday February 26 in North Somerset, UK. The South West event is supported by BARUG and WAUG and is organised by John Stonier - see the link below for more information.
