Euro show planned for JuneBy Chris Williams. Published: 4th Mar 2006, 13:06:04 | Permalink | Printable
ROL gathers exhibitors for Dutch eventA RISC OS show to be held in Europe this summer has been planned by RISCOS Ltd. Following the news that the Big Ben Club's event organisers were unable to arrange an Expo 2006, ROL are hoping to repeat the success of their December road show by hosting a one day exhibition in June in the Netherlands.
ROL boss Paul Middleton said: "The previous organisers of the Dutch RISC OS Expo are unable to organise the usual June show this year, so we have taken the decision to arrange an event on the same basis as the RISC OS Christmas Roadshow 2005. We hope that the usual British and local companies will attend."
Paul also called on for anyone wishing to exhibit at the show to contact his company as soon as possible.
The event should have space for about 40 stands, and a six foot table will cost 66 Euros to book - which works out to be the same price as a table booking for the December event. Potential exhibitors contacted by ROL this weekend include Castle, MW Software, the ARM Club, and AdvantageSix. It's understood that ROL are hoping to avoid charging an admission fee for punters, although they may do so to subsidise exhibitors' costs. Paul is looking to discuss this issue with exhibiting companies.
The RISC OS summer show will be taking place at the usual venue, the Hotel Mercure in Nieuwegein, on Saturday 17th June 2006. Doors will be open from 10am to 5pm.

Prototype affordable Braille display in development
A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
