Want to Exhibit?

Been working on a project? Passionate about sharing Vintage Computing? Want to show off an idea, product or app? Then the BCS Hertfordshire Autumn Computer Fair at the University of Hertfordshire is for you!

The Hertfordshire branch will be organising a Computer Fair in September where we are inviting you to demonstrate to others the systems and applications that you are passionate about – from vintage tech to modern projects and ideas such as those devised using a Raspberry Pi.

If you still have an older working system such as a ZX Spectrum, Commodore, BBC Micro, games consoles and nostalgia from the 90’s, we would like you to come along to show and talk about the history of such devices and to share what you do on them.

You are welcome to exhibit whatever you want within a related IT/Computing field that is appropriate for a Saturday morning! Vintage computers, hardware, software, tech projects and media are but a few of what could be considered to be interesting items. In short: if you’re passionate about it, then you’re headed in the right direction!

There is no cost for anyone who wants to exhibit at the event and no charge for tables. We can provide 240v power and the tables, but the rest is up to you. If you require more than one table, we can accommodate you at no charge.

Can I sell things at my table?

Yes, that won’t be a problem, but we will not be able to provide you with any infrastructure to support doing so.

How to reserve a table(s)

Please email to request your free table. Please let us know in a sentence what you would like to exhibit and if possible, how many tables you would like.
