AmigaKit.com Attending Retro Expo 2011

AmigaKit.com will be attending Replay Expo 2011 in Blackpool, UK on 5th-6th November.

Which EAB'ers will be attending?

What product suggestions do you have that you would like us to sell at the show?

I think since it's an event aimed mainly at people who won't already have an Amiga to buy expansions or software for you might want to take as many full A1200 systems as you can fit so when attendees walk past and see the nostalgic Amiga games running on your demo systems (I hope you'll have a couple of Amigas set up for people to play on too) they might be tempted enough to take the plunge and purchase an Amiga for themselves. Then you get to suggest all the essentials like 42Mhz accelerators and Compact Flash adapters. Other than that, take anything that might appeal to a broad audience like those USB Competition Pro joysticks, and of course any Amiga games that'll fit with the rest of the stock, I'm sure a couple of attendees will still have an Amiga packed away at home they'd be willing to dig out if they had some new games to try on it.

I will be attending. I would be happy for my A1200 with Blizzard MkIV, Indivision and LCD screen to sport a " You like? Go buy at AmigaKit" sticker! Or maybe even sit on Amigakits table as a WHDload machine.

I'll be going. Any chance you could bring a short a female-female 44pin IDE cable? That's about the only thing I need atm. There's certainly plenty of things I want, but I'm currently having financial difficulty, and a cable is just about the only thing I can afford

Hi guys,

I just booked my trip today, and I'll be there with (practically) no limit to what I can carry with me, because I'll be going by car/ferry.

If anyone of you wants his Indivision AGA flashed to the latest CPLD (with the Blizzard 1260 reset fix), or if you have an ACA630 that doesn't have the PCMCIA fix yet, please bring it, and I'll do the fix for free. I'll have the required equipment with me, and you can take your card back home with you on the same day.

I'll have the current prototypes with me, just in case you want to take a look at what's not yet working :-)

I'll have a limited supply of the black iComp coffee mugs with me, and you can find me at AmigaKit's table. If you buy an Individual Computers product at their table, you'll get one of these mugs for free! (subject to availability, you know the legal blahblah).

Hope to see you there,
Jens

This is the rough layout of Replay:

I assume AmigaKit.com will be set up in the trade zone?

Yep. I was there today

Bought a new mouse for my miggy and the Gold Speedlink Joystick for the PC to use on WinUAE. Had a nice chat with one of their guys about adding a new DVD drive to my A1200 and possibly changing to a tower cases, but got to wait for them to be available!

Me and my mate had a great day there, hope those who went did too! Only downside was the BAFTA/Imagine talk as the mic on the first guest just wasn't loud enough to be heard so we left after 15 mins!!
