"At the 1999 event, the Vancouver Linux User Group (VanLUG) was given a single 10 x 20 booth. It was swamped with people wanting to know more about Linux. The adjacent aisles were impassable. LUG members were constantly busy answering questions. The giveaway CD's ran out within the first 2 hours of the 3-day event."
"Needless to say that the Comdex organizers approached VanLUG and gave them more space for the next year. The Linux Showcase at Comdex/Canada West 2000 included several booths, a presentation area, and a VanLUG information booth. It was a runaway success."
"How much of a success? VanLUG signed up its 1000th member on Thursday. Easily the biggest LUG in Canada, VanLUG rivals the size of the world's largest LUGs. I am excited to see the overflowing aisles at the next VanLUG meeting, which by the way will be on Monday, January 24, at 7:30pm in the Telus Theatre at the BCIT campus."
