Got this in a couple of days ago...

I'll probably be there with a table. Just have to work out a few details.

Is there a heavy computer focus? I'd love to set up and display my collection of Japanese computers

..Is there a heavy computer focus?...

I zoomed in on the photo they used to advertise the show and was not encouraged.

It would be smart of them to entice the vintage computer hobbyists in the DFW area to increase attendance. They should push local computer clubs to endorse them and assure a computer presence (give the club members discounts to tables). They've got time to do this... good for the organizers and those that attend.

@68K, actually this is more of a swap meet. I did both once and had to keep slapping hands from trying to "buy" my display items!

There's not a real heavy computer focus. Definitely more along the vintage electronics painting a wide swath on that statement.

LOTS of calculators. Vacuum tubes, slide rules, a few old tube-type and early transistor radios, that sort of stuff.

It is a lot of fun tho even if you don't see any computer stuff. Kind of gives you an idea where the early computers actually came from.

When I haven't had a table and just attended, I had a lot of fun talking to the vendors and just seeing where our beloved retro-computers came from.

And I can not confirm I will be in attendance with some stuff for sale. Might have a couple of items just for show depending on how much I decide to bring.
