  • AFK Fest 2010 in Baltimore August 21st weekend + mini trade show

    Time to start planning another large meet.

    Two suggested weekends are:
    1. August the 21st or ***EDIT. The date will be the August 21st weekend.

    Get your free tickets to attend the Speaker Series here.

    Get your free tickets to attend the Car, Trade and Demo Show Here.
    We are asking that the companies that demo help support the event by making a $200 contribution that will towards paying for food for the event. As a presenter, we will set up up a table where you can show off your goods.


    Aside from the meet/bbq which we can hold at Fort McHenry, I was thinking it would be good to have a mini trade show here in our incubator, set everyone up with tables etc. This way all of the companies that came with products before can have space to lay their stuff out and show everyone.

    We can also do another AM speaker series, maybe 15-20 minutes on various topics and do 4-8 of them?

    Who is interested?

    Might be myself. Not that far a drive for me from Wilm, DE. I'm unfamiliar with these meets of course, but if like many other conventions, it would be sweet to get not only the big dealers there but the tinkerers nearby selling fabrication services and such.

    I don't know about many others but I don't have that much free time, and the little nitpicky PIA aspects of certain install issues are nice to farm out to others with better tools, talent, and time for specific things.

        i'm in and my suggestion is the 21st. 28th may interfere with people's labor day getaways. I hope to bring 2 cars this year.

              Hmm, so maybe some informal workshops, is people are willing to lead them? On certain topics? There will be installers there, at least on that is local who I think will be happy to come back, but it would be great to get a whole bunch.

              We will also shoot video so this way, presenters, companies/individuals with products to show or demo and actual installs will go up after online for everyone else to see.

                I might be able to bring down my own show truck, and if the install goes through on the carpc with a buddy, a second show car will join up as well.

                            Is there an actual specific address and time to go along with this? Maybe I'm just missing it 'ere...

                              Yes, we are going to hold it at the office again -
                              2400 Boston Street
                              suite 304
                              Baltimore md.

                              Unfortunately, Fort McHenry is under construction, so it is not an option this time. In the next few weeks we will start accepting members or companies that want to exhibit. And I'll throw together an Evite.

                              Another random idea is to get a whole bunch of developers together for the front ends and develop some pluggins...I could get some room space for this I think.
