RISC World

Expo 2004

The mainland Europe Expo 2004 previewed by RISCWorld

Once again the Big Ben club in the Netherlands is organising another RISC OS show on Saturday the 19th of June 2004. This is the only RISC OS show that takes place outside the UK and is supported by a number of RISC OS companies, and is sponsored by X-Ample Technology, Castle Technology, RISCOS Ltd and MicroDigital. The show will take place at Expohall, Hotel Mercure Buizerdlaan 10, Nieuwegein (near the city of Utrecht) in the Netherlands.

The Show offers exhibitions and promotions by various companies, including Dutch, German and British RISC OS dealers. A number of club members will also be on hand to offer demonstrations. This is an excellent opportunity for European customers to meet with companies based in the UK, as well as an ideal time for UK companies to be able to demonstrate their products face to face.

It's hoped that there will be a show theatre, although at the time of writing a list of speakers was not available. However the latest information can always be found on the club website at What was available was a list of confirmed exhibitors including:

  • Aemulor
  • Archive Publications
  • Castle Technology
  • Desk
  • Dr Wimp
  • MicroDigital Europe
  • MWSoftware
  • R-Comp
  • RISCOS Ltd
  • Unix Porting Project
  • X-Ample Technology

More companies are hoping to confirm shortly.

For partners of those who are going to the show, but that are not interested in RISC OS (fools -HJ) there is the possibility of a city tour of Utrecht being offered by a local guide who knows the city like the back of his hand.

The Expo 2004 offers a great chance for UK dealers to see their European customers, and for RISC OS users living in mainland Europe to try a wide range of RISC OS product before parting with any hard earned money.
