Booking

The room where the meeting is celebrated isn't big. That's why we recommend to all possible expositors that please make the reservation as soon as possible. This will be good to everybody because you get more guarantees of getting your own stand and also, this will encourage more visitors to the users meetings when they see that there are a lot of confirmed expositors. Last year, only one stand place was free, but this year maybe all the available places will be occupied.

This year, the room where the users meetings is going to be celebrated, has been changed for another one, so, the tables has changed too. The new sizes are 200*80.

As other years, the access for visitors to the users meeting its free. Also, the stands are free too, but these expositors that only have 2nd hand games for sale must pay for the stand.

Here its de prices list:

  • If your stand only has got 2nd hand games, you must pay 40€
  • If your stand has got 2nd hand game but it also has computers for sale, you must pay 40€. Also, for every computer for selling found in your stand, the final price of the stand will be reduced 3€.
  • If your stand represents any MSX related association, a coders group, MSX website, MSX merchandise, MSX music... the stand will be free.
  • If you are a game, aplications or software developer for MSX, your space is the Party Zone and is also free registration.

Also, the 2nd hand stand service organized by the AAMSX will be free too.
