Amiwest is the premier Amiga-focused show in North America. Amiwest has provided a haven for like-minded individuals to come and celebrate all things in the Amiverse: Commodore Amiga's, Emulation, Aros, AmigaOS 4, and MorphOS . The show has become a yearly event in the community, with many new product announcements and introductions expected. Over the years, the show has seen Amiga companies come and go. Our goal has to be to create an environment for the community to come together and share ideas and AAA good times through it all.

Amiwest 2022 September Update 1
September 2, 2022
Welcome to September!

Less than 50 days until Amiwest 2022, and we have many good updates. The schedule has been populated with a list of speakers and when to expect them. There is a little bit of JS to localize the times. This year we will have a mix of in-person and remote presenters to bring the best content to the show. We are also excited to announce that the legendary RJ Mical will be at Amiwest. Join us on Saturday lunch for pizza with RJ. Expect some short comments from RJ then we will dive into Q and A. We are all looking forward to that one.

We have a new exhibitor since our last update, Francis Bernier, who will be showing several ReAmiga boards. He will also show his C64 motherboard called the C64i. Be sure to stop by his table and ask what special features he has added.

If you missed it the games competition will happening at the show and this years game is Bean Versus The Animator. For those who don't know Bean Versus The Animator, it's a fantastic shooting game for only $5... it's a deal. The trophy looks insane, so pick up a game copy and start practicing.

Amiwest user survey is still running, and we appreciate those who responded. If you have not yet, check out the attendee survey here.

The banquet planning is underway. Initially, we hoped to present the banquet in another part of the hotel, but with the renovation, that option is no longer available. We are currently planning on using the show floor as we have in the past. Those who have attended know how limited space can be, so please let us know if you want to be on our list. To reserve tickets, please send in your email address, full name (no nicknames or "handles," please), and the number of tickets to info(at)amiwest.net with "2022 Amiwest Banquet Reservation" in the subject line.

Final item, the show room rate at the hotel expires September 19th. Be sure to book your room before then to get the best rate.

Amiwest 2022 updates
August 11, 2022

Several updates this time.

First, for 2022 Amiwest will be returning to the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Secramento NE Cal Expo. This hotel has served the show for many years. Last year attendees may have noticed some construction materials. This year the rennovation of the show floor will be complete! To reserve your room visit the reservation page.

Second, we are happy to announce a new exhibitor for 2022. Stefan Reinauer and Chris Hooper have lovingly reimplemented the Commodore A4091 ZorroIII SCSI2 controller. Attendees of the show will be able to see this product and buy one! Check out the exhibit floor page for details.

Third, we need your support! If you are planning on attending the show please drop us a note with email address, full name (no nick names or "handles" please), and number of tickets to info(at)amiwest.net. In addition to the banquet attendance we also have an attendee survey to help us make the show better.


Amiwest 2022 progress report
July 24, 2022
For Immediate Release: Amiwest 2022 October 22-23rd

In honor of the 25th incarnation of Amiwest, the organizing team has been hard at work putting together an amazing show. First, the show hotel is currently under renovation and will be complete in September. So many attendees who stay in the hotel will be treated to refreshed rooms. The show hall is getting a new modern look with better lighting, a welcome change.

Our featured banquet speaker will be Tim Jenison of NewTek fame. This accomplished engineer created one of the most ambitious Amiga peripherals, the Video Toaster. Since then, he has moved on to explore many other fascinating challenges. Join us on Saturday, Oct 22nd, to welcome Tim to Amiwest!

Thus far, we have ten exhibitors lined up, including Doug Compton of 10Marc. We are looking for additional exhibitors, so if you are interested in showing off your Amiga-related project, drop us a note.

Attendee survey! In an effort to make the show the best we can, we are happy to announce a 2022 survey. We hope all those interested in Amiwest, even if you plan to attend or not, take a few minutes to fill in the survey and let us know your thoughts.

We know that travel is difficult with elevated flight costs and more expensive gas. We are working very hard to ensure that this year Amiwest is a special show worthy of the 25th, and we hope you can join us.

Take care,
Amiwest Organizing Team

AmiWest 2022 Banquet To Feature Tim Jenison!
June 29, 2022
We are thrilled to be joined by NewTek Founder Tim Jenison as the featured presentor at Amiwest 2022 banquet. This will be Mr. Jenison's first appearance at an Amiwest show. We are still working to determine the venue of the banquet so the final ticket price has not been set. We ask that folks interested in attending visit our reservation page and email to reserve a ticket. This is a different system from years past and the ticket reservations will help us gauge interest to right size the event. Space will be limited and Mr. Jenison has requested the event not be live-streamed or recorded


Amiwest 2022 To Be ONSITE & ONLINE!
March 6, 2022
The AmiWest show has been ONLINE since the first show in 1998. The show has been internet enabled that year and every year since. Starting with an IRC, then audio broadcast, to today where video and audio are broadcast and posted to YouTube in near real-time. AmiWest is no stranger to being present online.

The past few years have seen an exponential expansion of this presence. New technology has given us a better quality broadcast with better reach than ever before. Thanks to our production team, this online presence continues for 2022.

And our ONSITE presence is expanding even more for 2022! We're using more space at our venue to create more exhibit hall room and a dedicated presenter space. You don't want to miss it!

So remember that AmiWest 2022, the 25th AmiWest show will take place October 20-24, 2022 at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA. Welcome back to all of our continuing attendees. We're doing our best to make this the most memorable AmiWest show yet. If this is your first time, welcome to the show! And watch this blog for the latest info and breaking AmiWest news. See you in October!

February 21, 2022
