Dates Announced for AmiWest 2014

As is customary at AmiWest, the dates for the coming year were announced at the conclusion of the show.  October 23-24, 2014  will be the third AmiWest Programming Seminar, and October 24-26, 2014 will be the AmiWest show dates.  AmiWest 2014 will be the 17th AmiWest show.


Our venue remains the same at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA.  This venue was our partner in a great AmiWest 2013 and we have no doubt that they will also be our "get it done" partner in 2014 as well.
