Warp Expo West To Be At Chapman
Beautiful Facilities Are Perfect for This Event
"We wanted the perfect site," said Steve Schiffman, one of the show
planners for the September show, "and I'm pleased 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 and 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."
"Since 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. Everyone is excited!" she added.
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 now 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."
