MSX fair Nijmegen 2023

Fair date: Saturday, March 25th

Hi! Welcome to the homepage of the 18th MSX fair in Nijmegen! The MSX fair in Nijmegen is the newest (and for a long time now already the only) regular Dutch MSX fair, meant to be the successor of the MSX fair in Oss, which was held in January (in 2005 for the last time). This fair is organised by myself, with support from Raymond van der Meulen. I hope it is a worthy replacement for Oss.

2023's fair will be held on Saturday the 25th of March in "Dorpshuis De Lèghe Polder" in Beuningen (a village close to Nijmegen). It opens for visitors at 10am (but you are welcome to come from 9.00am to help setting up the room!). At 6.00pm the room should be completely empty again.

After fair dinner

After the fair, we are planning to have dinner with the remaining visitors in the building that also hosts the fair. The caterer needs to know for how many people to cook, so please let me know if you want to join on beforehand. Please do not use the registration form for this, but just send me an e-mail. The form is only meant for people who want to register a booth. Because I have to order at the caterer, reservations are only confirmed by paying in advance.

Support and Sponsoring

If you'd like to support the fair, there are two important ways to do that: the first is to promote the fair, to attract as many visitors as possible. The second is organizing activities during the fair. Please discuss with me on beforehand, but stuff like this makes the fair really interesting. Great examples of activities are the (in)famous MSX Quiz, the Triplex setup we had in the past, small (gaming) contests and stuff like that. Looking forward to your plans!

You can also sponsor the fair financially. This means that you can contribute to pay the price of the venue. There is no other way the money will be spent and there is no other advantage on sponsoring. But it may keep organizing the fair possible for reasonable table prices.

If you want to sponsor or support the fair, please contact me.

For all previous and current sponsors and supporters: thank you very much, also on behalf of the people who registered booths and all visitors!

Nijmegen/Beuningen is located in the middle-east (!) of the Netherlands, not too far from Oss, where a similar fair was held before 2006. It can be reached easily as well by car as by train. If you come by train, you should count on a bus trip through Nijmegen and Beuningen of about 20 minutes. The actual venue is in Beuningen, a village very close to Nijmegen.

The address:

Dorpshuis "De Lèghe Polder"
Schoolstraat 16
6641 DC Beuningen
The Netherlands

Dorpshuis De Lèghe Polder

If you're coming by car, you'll need to drive to the center of Beuningen. Use something like Google Maps to navigate you to the right location. There is only limited parking near the building. Be careful that the building itself is just inside a blue zone, where parking is limited to only 2 hours (with parking disc). You are advised to park outside this zone, e.g. in the Schoolstraat or on the parking lot in the Beatrixplein.

Use the following maps to get directions interactively from your location with the transportation method you use.

Fair guidelines

BOOTH SETUP AND TEARING DOWN On the day of the fair, you can start putting up your booth between 9.00 and 10am. Because of the expected "rush" and limited parking facilities I advise you to come as early as possible. We will make sure there is room near the door to do unloading. If you need help getting all your stuff in the room, feel free to ask the organisation for help. You have to have your booth torn down at 6.00pm at the latest as the room has to be utterly clean at that time.

NO SMOKING You are not allowed to smoke in the building! The ones of you who can't get through the day without their nicotine shot (;p) can have a smoke outside the building at the designated location.

SOUND As used to be in Bussum, also I would like to have a cosy fair where the old atmosphere of different booths competing for the best sound installation will return a little :). However, in case you intend to bring audio equipment with you, please let us know in advance for the planning, and keep it civilised. If the organisation asks you to lower your volume, be so kind to comply. Place speakers as much as possible behind the booth.

FOOD AND DRINKS In our venue it is prohibited to bring your own food and drinks. This is quite fair, as the price for the venue is low, so this is how they make some money. Please stick to this rule to prevent problems with the patron. As the fair is in a gym, please refrain from drinking and eating there; do that at or near the bar instead.
