The Vendor100 Plan

Warp Expo West has a very special plan for OS/2 software developers and vendors.

"We're calling it our Vendor100 plan," said Warp Expo West Chairman Rollin White, "and it is free, absolutely free, no strings attached of any type. We want to make sure that OS/2 software developers and vendors everywhere, whether they make use of one of our free exhibitor tables or not, have a presence at Warp Expo West."

"If you have an existing OS/2 software product," said White, "you can sign up for free for Vendor100. If you offer an OS/2 service of any kind, you can sign up for free for Vendor100. If you've published an OS/2 book, or you host an OS/2 oriented web site, or if you have any other product or service related to OS/2, you can sign up for free for Vendor100."

The benefits of being a part of Vendor100 are striking. "For starters, you get your product or service onto the Warp Expo West web site as soon as you sign up, so right away you're getting additional exposure," explained Carla Hanzlik, the Warp Expo West webmistress. "Then, you'll get front line exposure at Warp Expo West even if you haven't reserved one of our free exhibit tables. We'll make sure your product materials get into the hands of the Warp Expo West attendees."

Hanzlik described the Vendor100 plan while she was busily designing new web pages for Warp Expo West. "If you have brochures, or a printout of your web site, or demo CDs or diskettes, or promotional items of any kind, we'll make sure those items are received by our guests and available on our special Vendor100 tables. And our staff will be at these tables to direct guests to the particular types of products they're looking for, so not a single Vendor100 product will be overlooked by any attendee."

There's an on-line Registration Form, so signing up for Vendor100 is easy.

"Every attendee who comes to Warp Expo West wants to see OS/2 products and services," said White. They want to know the large offerings, the shareware and freeware, the books, services and websites that will give them the tools they need and solve the problems they have."

"Vendor100 will give your product or service a free presence at Warp Expo West," continued White, "and we want every single OS/2 developer and vendor to be represented there."

Steve Schiffman, the Warp Expo West facilities manager, was especially pleased with the planning he's having done for the exhibit hall and the Vendor100 displays. "We've carefully measured the rooms and located every electrical outlet and network connection," said Schiffman, "and we're making complete floor diagrams showing lighting, tables, aisles and doorways. Every exhibitor will be included in the high-traffic area, and the Vendor100 tables will be specially located to maximize their impact and to move guests past all of the exhibitors who have taken one of our free exhibitor tables."

"Vendor100 is another means for promoting OS/2 products," concluded White. "With the product literature and samples in front of the attendees and the vendors' online ordering systems in place, we hope to connect a lot of OS/2 users with the programs and services they need."

If this sounds good to you, register as a Vendor100 now.


Warp Expo West, "A Warpfest of OS/2 Excitement," is free for guests and exhibitors alike. The show takes place on September 18 in sunny Southern California. If you have questions, please contact Rollin White.
