RISC OS Christmas roadshow details finalisedBy Chris Williams. Published: 16th Nov 2005, 20:42:08 | Permalink | Printable
Exhibitors to be confirmed [Updated]At least two of the venues in the Christmas roadshow this year have been confirmed according to an email sent to dealers and developers this evening. Organiser and ROL boss Paul Middleton wrote: "The dates and venues for the RISC OS Christmas Roadshow have now been finalised. Please note that there will be no admission charges for visitors in order to encourage attendance. The cost of the tables has been kept as low as possible to help everyone make some money on the events."
Locating suitable exhibtion halls at short notice proved to be a tricky exercise as the ambitious plan to tour the UK was not announced until late in October. As such, the meetings to be held next month should be more informal and intimate with punters as they are smaller and more cosier than regular RISC OS shows. Companies including AdvantageSix, VirtualAcorn, CJE Micros, R-Comp and Martin Wuerthner were sent the email asking for places to be booked as soon as possible.
Users in the West Midlands thought their hopes of a local RISC OS show this year were sunk when the ARM Club pulled out of hosting an event. However now exhibitors will hopefully be travelling to the Bassett Suite at the West Bromwich Albion Football Club on Thursday 15th December to greet punters between 4pm and 8pm. The roadshow then rolls into Manchester on Friday, although details for that day are yet to be confirmed. Companies then move to Middlesex on Saturday to appear in the Garden Suite at the Best Western Cumberland Hotel between 11am and 3pm.
The roadshow aims to promote extra Christmas trade in the RISC OS market, especially from users who were unable to make it to any of the annual shows or major user group meetings this year.

RISCOS Ltd. have confirmed that the Manchester area event will take place at the Brittania Hotel in Stockport between 4pm and 8pm on Friday 16th December. Full addresses and details are here.
