Northern Sweden's largest demo party-January 29-31 1999-Noliahallarna, Umeå
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arranged by: Amiga Computer Group

Northern Sweden's largest computer event 1999 will be held in Noliahallarna,
one of Sweden's largest and best equipped fair halls, in Umeå. Anticipating
around 500 visitors, there are two halls; one for games and multimedia and
one for "creativity" featuring a stage where guests speakers will hold
seminars. The hallway between the two halls will feature sales booths for
guest companies.


The location of Midwinter 99

Umeå, whezzat?
Umeå is the largest city in the northern part of Sweden, and more important - 
it's the home of Midwinter 99.

And the party hall?
The party halls (well, there's actually two of them) are in Noliahallarna -
one of Sweden's largest conference complexes. It takes about 10 minutes of
walking to get to the center of Umeå from Midwinter 99.

These are real, modern and fresh exhibition halls with all the equipment
needed for a party like ours (such as toilets, showers and even a small
restaurant).

We have space for over 400 visitors, with computers. Parking is free, with
lots of place for all visitors.

The travel information section has maps and more information of how to get
there.

Booking and paying in advance
Advance payments are only accepted to PostGiro account no 845563-6 (Sweden,

please add 60 SEK to each transfer to cover our bank's extra charge.

We will also accept payment sent as cash (only SEK) to Amiga Computer Group,
