There is something for everyone whether you are into games, hardware, software, demos or just meeting like-minded people.

Game Competitions include SWOS, Stunt Car Racer, Paper Plane and more. Prizes for winners. Also, spontaneous competitions – load your own game & approach people to compete.
Exhibitions WiFi, Dropbox, accelerators. New machines such as A1222, classics like the Commodore 64, Amiga 500 – 4000 are frequent. Vampire & ARM systems such as AmiBerry are usually on show.
Social aspect is important. We go for a meal on the Friday night (VIP ticket holders) as well as to an atmospheric local pub on the Saturday night (everyone welcome). On Sunday morning, a casual gathering nearby.
