Hello !


Please join us at World of Commodore 2023, Canada's largest Commodore computer expo.  It's being held at the Admiral Inn Mississauga, which provides convenient accommodations for those who are visiting from out of town.  The featured guest this year is Amiga engineer RJ Mical.  This is a two-day event, taking place on:

World of Commodore is organized by TPUG - Toronto PET Users Group, which was founded in 1979 and is the longest continually-operating Commodore users group in the world.  Members past and present include Commodore guru Jim Butterfield, legendary programmer Steve Punter, and renowned sensation Dave Bradley (RUN magazine columnist; YouTube's 8-Bit Commodore Man).


Full details of the expo can be found here:


We're looking for guest speakers, exhibitors, and vendors.  While vendors are required to pay a table fee, there is no table charge for exhibitors who are not selling any products or services; exhibitors pay only for general admission.  To reserve a vendor's table, please visit the website above.  To reserve an exhibitor's table, please email your request to:  info@tpug.ca


Preference is given to guest speakers who are able to present in person.  However, we'd be happy to have you present virtually through Zoom if your project is something that retrocomputing fans would really enjoy.  Please get in touch by emailing:  info@tpug.ca


Thanks for being part of the Commodore community !

Enjoy this whirlwind tour of World of Commodore 2023, courtesy of rising YouTube star retroCombs (Steven Combs):




Introductory greetings were provided by Bruce Boxleitner and Claudia Christian, where they discussed their impressions of Babylon 5's revolutionary use of visual effects on TV.  The pilot's VFX were provided by a studio named Foundation Imaging, using a series of Commodore Amiga computers and NewTek's Video Toaster technology.  For their work on the pilot, Foundation Imaging won the 1993 Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement In Special Visual Effects.
