Vendors: Do you work for a business that may interest our audience? If so, then you may qualify for a professional vendor booth.

Other attractions: Diana/TIROS site tours, digital art show (sponsored by The Arts Project Room at InfoAge), and learn-to-solder classes (sponsored by Institute for Exploratory Research).

Food: Where they are computer nerds, there must be food! Items such as bagels, muffins, coffee, sandwiches, snacks, soft drinks, etc. will be available. Proceeds will benefit the InfoAge Science Center.

VCF East Dinner: There is a VIP dinner Saturday night. Exhibitors, volunteers, and speakers will have first access to tickets. We anticipate that a couple of dozen tickets will also be available to the public. An announcement about this will be made Saturday afternoon at the show.
