CTS exhibitors get bug for year 2000 show

Next month's show doubled in size, dates already set for 2000

Less than a year since its launch, the Computer Trade Show has already set dates for its exhibition in the year 2000. With the second show ready to kick off on 20 and 21 January next year, the show’s organisers have announced that the number of exhibitors has doubled since the first show earlier this year. The keynote address for the show will be given by Gwynneth Flower, head of Action 2000 - the body set up to educate UK business on the threat posed by the millennium bug. Stuart Greenfield, the show’s managing director, was in bullish mood when confirming the number of exhibitors for next month’s CTS would stand at 115, with pre-show registrations currently standing at around 4,000. "CTS has been given an overwhelmingly positive response since the day the show was born in January 1998, and the signs are that the event will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. We are approaching the new millennium with a tremendous air of expectation." The 2000 show will run on 26 and 27 January at the Birmingham NEC, the venue for next month’s show. ®
