The build up to the Computer Trade Show 2000 may have created a lot of channel flannel, but organisers iMark have already filled nearly half of next year's floor space with exhibitor bookings. Among those making announcements at CTS 2000 were Fujitsu Siemens, which has signed up Hampshire distributor AGP to sell its motherboards in the UK. The company is offering the D1107, D1127, D1170 and D1171 models. Compaq said it was backing online trading start-up Hyporium. The two have signed a deal to let Big Q's accredited resellers use the service – which promises to turn them into eResellers – without charge for one year. On Wednesday, Hyperchannel, owner of Hyporium, netted $24 million in funding from GE Capital. Also spotted around the show was Chris Walmsley, of Memsolve fame, who was sporting a new job badge. The former Memsolve sales and marketing manager, who left the distributor for rival Logitek last May, has moved to LG International. Walmsley is now UK sales manager for the Korean vendor. He will be starting a distribution and OEM direct channel for the company's monitors and MP3 players at the end of this month. CTS organisers, iMark Communications, said they were pleased with the show and had already optioned 45 per cent of next year's floor space. Among exhibitors signed up for next year were Ingram Micro, Microtronica, Maxdata, Datrontech and Microtronica. In response to the outcry at price hikes from the previous year, CTS 2001 will cost £249 per square metre, around £50 cheaper than this year. According to Jon Gibson, iMark portfolio director, this year's show had 6,600 pre-registered visitors, compared to 4,300 in 1999. But he was unable to say how many of these were trade. iMark plans to place a stand size restriction of 100 square metres for the next show to allow for more smaller companies to come on board. This year's biggest stand was Avnet's 170 square metres. Next year will also see more educational seminars for trade visitors, such as those this year from Microsoft and Dabs Direct. ® Related stories: Typhoon hits Logitek in wake of Osmosis fallout Memsolve calls in receiver The channel is revolting – against CTS prices To see other stories from CTS 2000, click here
