It has been too long since I attended this convention but I am really glad I made it in 2018, in their larger venue. Seems like they're going to need to get more space - so much stuff! I did not exhibit this year but I took a lot of photos. The hobby is changing and this event is leading the way. Jason and team really have it down and I believe they understand the hobby and what hobbyists want in a convention like this. Nearly all attendees have said that they really love the mix of exhibits, workshops, and sales in one place - a smorgasbord of attractions.
In addition to the great classic computers I also really enjoyed Mike Willegal's SCELBI 8B talk and the showing of the remastered video from 1994 "Unauthorized Access". Brings back memories when I was into all that stuff!
