Laurens Holst, also known as Grauw, has just announced the date for the 2008 edition of the MSX fair in Bussum. TNI will host the event on September 27, 2008. It will be the twentieth installment of this fair, and the tenth time it takes place in its current location. That for sure calls for a celebration!

The fair in Bussum is one of the last standing major MSX events in the Netherlands and definitely worth a visit. Don't forget that the fair finds its companion in the MSX Marathon, which will start directly after the end of the fair. The fair opens at 10:00, the MSX Marathon closes around 23:00, which means thirteen hours of unabridged MSX fun! Check out our photo shoots section and the report on Bussum 2004 for impressions of previous Bussum fairs.

Registration is not open, yet. The location is still the same as it has been during last ten years: Sociaal-Cultureel Centrum Uitwijk, Bussum, which is right in the center of The Netherlands. It's a short walk from the nearby train station and there's usually sufficient parking space for those who come by car.

Is there any chance we'll be in the 'big' hall, instead of scattered over several classrooms? That'd be nice for a change Smile

Nevertheless, thumbs up Grauw! Great job organizing these fairs!

Cool!

For those who can't wait until September, do visit the MSX fair in Nijmegen on January 19th! Smile (OK, sorry for plugging this, but I still didn't even see a banner on the site here (I guess snout is busy)).

[D-Tail]: No, there’s no chance for that at all. The big hall isn’t owned by the Uitwijk anymore for a long time already, and it’s also always used during the fair (you can hear the band practice there in the mornings Smile). So, sorry for that!

snout: I’ll definitely come to Nijmegen Smile.

Don’t know about that. My OCM setup is definitely easier to bring with me though, so I’ll have to see Smile.

And sorry, yes, I meant manuel, not snout Smile. No idea how I managed to make that mistake!
