LinuxPR: An Open Invitation to the Computer & Technology Showcase

May 16, 2001, 23:20 (0 Talkback[s])

Dear Fellow GNU/Linux Enthusiasts;

It is our pleasure to announce that we have once again been invited to host the Linux booth at CTS (Computer & Technology Showcase) on May 30 and 31, 2001, at the Harborview Center in Clearwater, Florida. This time we want to make it even more spectacular -- and since we've been given much more floor space and have some incredible speakers lined up, the opportunity is there.

As you may remember, the Suncoast Linux Users Group (SLUG) invited all Florida LUGs to come to our booth at the last CTS show last October, and lend their support. That first show was a tremendous success. We gave out approximately 2000+ free GNU/Linux distribution disks. Official numbers showed we were visited by the almost 2/3 of the total 6000 attendees. Even with an all volunteer crew and makeshift banners, we were the most successful booth at the show, beating even Microsoft's booth attendance by a 5 to 1 ratio. Below are links to stories about that show:
