THE FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT
Warp Expo West Announced for September
"SCOUG has already sponsored two
OS/2 events," said Terry Warren, President of SCOUG, "and
we'll continue this tradition with Warp Expo West this
coming September. Accordingly, SCOUG has already formed a
Warp Expo West Committee to plan this year's great event."
The Warp Expo West Committee is headed by Rollin White, a
founding member of SCOUG and experienced OS/2 showman.
White had a major involvement in the first Warpstock, has
led two prior SCOUG-sponsored OS/2 Show Committees, and is
a member of the Warpstock Steering Committee. "We've got a
great, experienced team in place to produce this West Coast
show," said White, "and Warp Expo West will be a premiere
showcase for the Warp OS/2 Operating System."
The Warp Expo West team includes Steve Schiffman, an
experienced show planner. "I'm negotiating right now for
some of the finest show facilities in Southern California,"
said Schiffman. "We want every Warp Expo West guest to
have the ultimate OS/2 experience. Every aspect will be
perfectly planned--lecture facilities, vendor hall,
software demonstrations, topical meeting rooms, food
service, transportation and parking facilities, even
out-of-town guest accomodations."
Carla Hanzlik, Editor of the monthly publication OS/2 For
You, is also one of the Warp Expo West planners. "In the
past we've done great exhibits like The OS/2 Museum and
diversions like The OS/2 Carnival Games, and this year
we'll have new surprises for the guests," said Hanzlik.
(OS/2 For You is published by SCOUG.)
"OS/2 is still riding a crest of excitement as the
highest-technology desktop operating system on the market
today," continued Warren. "We welcome everyone to join us
again this year for our Warpfest Of OS/2 Excitement - Warp
Warp Expo West Selects Show Site
June 16, 1999
Site selection has been completed for this September's "Warp Expo West - A Warpfest Of OS/2 Excitement". "We wanted the perfect site," said Steve Schiffman, one of the show planners for the September show, "and I'm pleased to announce that the beautiful Chapman Conference Facilities in Orange, California will be the site of this year's Warp Expo West." "We chose Chapman over a number of other bidders for several reasons," explained Schiffman. "First of all, Chapman offers prime facilities for the OS/2 lectures, seminars, software demonstrations and vendor exhibits that guests will enjoy during the show. And it's centrally located, within two miles of four different freeways with easy access to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Ontario International Airport (ONT) and a number of other airports." "Further," continued Schiffman, "Chapman is only four miles from Disneyland which means that guests will have a wide variety of options for lodging and family activities. In fact, we expect that many Warp Expo West showgoers will spend an extra day with their families enjoying Southern California's attractions, beaches, culture and people." A formal announcement of the exact date and other details for Warp Expo West is expected this Saturday at the monthly meeting of the Southern California OS/2 User Group (SCOUG). (SCOUG is sponsoring Warp Expo West.) "Since last week when we released the first information on Warp Expo West, the response has been overwhelming" said Carla Hanzlik, a member of the Warp Expo West planning committee and Editor of the monthly publication OS/2 For You. "We've been contacted repeatedly by OS/2 users from everywhere wanting to know how to exhibit, how to speak, and how to register for the event. We'll have complete information for everyone this Saturday, now that our show site is confirmed." Hanzlik further said that she was feverishly working on the design of Warp Expo West web pages "which we'll put on line this Saturday." Rollin White, head of the Warp Expo West planning committee and a veteran OS/2 showman, had this additional statement: "We started Warp Expo West with just an idea, and already we have the site, the plan, and the team to smoothly carry it out. OS/2 is the most robust and powerful desktop operating system in the world today; no competitor's marketing machine or business practices can change that fact; and we look forward to welcoming OS/2 users from all over the world to our Warpfest Of OS/2 Excitement - Warp Expo West."
