Fall exhibition in the hall Lenekspo (at the Harbor)
The fall exhibitions of computers' hardware and communication
systems are already traditional in St. Petersburg This time they were all (Norwecom, Educom, Networks, Invecom) combined and happaned
at the same time (from 25 to 29 of November)
The weather is not too good, although you can't really feel it inside the
exhibition halls :)
The entrance fee this time was 15000 for all exhibitions.
As far as I understood there were 4 halls.
(Sign above the entrance - Networks'97)
I haven't seen anything especially interesting. As usual, mostly the
retailer of hardware and dealers of foreign companies.
Since we are on the internet
ourselves we looked a little at its providers.
...and Dmitrii Semkin who works there :)
A parrot giving away the price lists. There was also two rather strange
young men in handkerchiefs on their heads who assaulted the peacefully walking citizens ;)
"LEK Telecom" - they were playing guitar, cello
and something else at there stand, it all looked pretty unusual and attracted people.
Sergei Klimenkov at "Elcom"
And SparcServer standing behind him.
PCI, up to 4GB RAM, up to 4 processors UltraSparc
Tasty thing :)
Stand of Aiaks (if I am not mistaken). Sticker on the car's window -
I wander if this means to say that Intel is good or bad? ;-)
The absence of large foreign companies like IBM, Microsoft and such was
very noticeable (comparing to the previous exhibitions)
However there was as usual a lot of people. It would be useful to place traffic lights on
some of the intersections to control the traffic :)
