I want to go but I do not have the time :( I live to far away. Hope it goes well, maybe then you will have another one and maybe I could go then.

There will be a small subset of the exhibitors from Acorn World at the London Show, including Retro Software. [link]

ROUGOL have a stand at Acorn World, so all those who never make it far enough south to meet us, do drop by to say hello!

Errr "Sold Out" I've never heard of a show Selling Out before, One Acorn World show at the Novotel Hammersmith had to stop anyone entering until other people left. Is the 'Emley Suite' seriously small or maybe someone has missinterpreted the rules? Either way it sounds like it is going to be a success, well done.

That's disapointing, I hope that if there is another then a bigger venue is booked. An Acorn World show appears to attract a bigger audience.

Myself and Brian manned the ROGOUL stand on the Saturday. We were next to the Wakefield guys. Was a good show. Pleased I did not enter the raffle tho. Not sure what I would have done with the none functioning Arcade machine! Lord only knows how I would have transported it back to MK.

I was there on Sunday for WROCC; it was much quieter than the Saturday (I'm told), but attendance still seemed good and at least we got to leave the stand.

I didn't catch all of Rob Sprowson's ROOL talk (I'm afraid lunch was more pressing), but the other two presentations (Steve Furber and Mel Pullen) were very good. Some interesting exhibits, too, even though I'm definitely not an 8-bit enthusiast.

I think TIB's report sums it all up. Thanks to the organisers -- it was a good day, both as an exhibitor and a visitor.

I think you mean ROUGOL :-)

Was a fun show to attend, glad I made the long journey. The Acorn World room actually seemed far more lively than the main room, with lots of chatter compared to people just sitting quietly playing a game.

The biggest buzz I saw in the main room was when someone completed the marathon on Track & Field - 3 hours of button bashing!

For those that missed the show, Dave Moore of Retro Software and others will be bringing a subset of Acorn World along to the RISC OS London Show.

Looks like a great show, shame I couldn't go myself. Maybe next year...
