RISC OS eXperience 2009: an invitation!

Hello All

After the success of last year's RISC OS eXperience 2008, we are organising this year's RISC OS eXperience 2009.

The show will be held on Saturday 16 May 2009 in the same venue as last year:


Wijkgebouw de Vuister
Molenwerf 44
1541 WR Koog aan de Zaan
The Netherlands

Last year between 70 to 80 visitors attended the show, many of whom brought their own system. The atmosphere was friendly and inspiring. Many people made new contacts or renewed old acquaintences.

Some quotes from commercial attendants:

'Thanks again to you and the club for your excellent hospitality that day and evening. I enjoyed it so much.' - Jim Nagel, Archive

'I wanted to thank you for your hospitality last Saturday. It was well organised and had a warm atmosphere. Also on behalf of Richard Brown of Castle' - Paul Reuver, XAT (translated from Dutch).

We would like to invite you to the RISC OS eXperience 2009 show. There's no charge for stands, however you have of course to pay for your own travel and accommodation. If you decide to attend could you please let us know by the end of February and answer the following questions in your reply?

If you decide not to come we would be pleased if you could inform us of the reason so we might come up with a solution (this or next time).

'De Vuister' offers good and flexible floor space capabilities. The main hall is alongside a car park at the rear of the building. Setting up the stands can be done on Saturday from 09:00 or on Friday evening between 21:00 and 23:00, goods and stand material are left there at your own risk. There is a fast internet connection. Costs of consumptions and drinks are quite modest (The club will provide lunch).

We aim to keep you informed about the show, presentations and activities. The latest news about our club and the RISC OS eXperience 2009 can be found at our club website http://www.bigbenclub.nl
