Subject: YOU'RE INVITED! - Astronomy Technology Showcase Open House
Dear friend in Astronomy,
On behalf of the Advanced Imaging Conference (AIC) of San Jose, I'd like to invite you and your members to join us on Saturday October 17, 2015 for our Astronomy Technology Showcase Open House, at the San Jose Convention Center between the hours of 10 AM and 5 PM.
The Advanced Imaging Conference has been the premier event for astrophotographers for over a decade. Until this year, the meeting has been limited to paid attendees only. However, on Saturday, October 17 we're inviting the public to join us at our incredible Astronomy Technology Showcase. This exhibition has always been a big draw for the conference but now we want to make it available to everyone.
For a nominal fee of only $10 per person ($5 if you mention your club), your members will gain admittance to the west coast's largest astronomical exhibition.
It features many of the world’s leading manufacturers, retailers and software producers displaying products for both visual and photographic observations. The manufacturers include PlaneWave Instruments, SBIG, Celestron, and Software Bisque. Oceanside Photo and Telescope, and Woodland Hills Camera and Telescope will also be there, with over 35 exhibitors in total. In addition to retailer, hardware and software exhibitors, we'll have some fun and affordable stuff available for the whole family. Mention your club's name and receive $5 off of admission!
The Advanced Imaging Conference, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c) organization managed by a group of non-compensated, all-volunteer astronomy enthusiasts who would value your help in making this special event successful. Would you be so kind as to distribute the attached PDF to your members and consider including it in your club newsletters between now and October? Please feel free to let me know about anything that would entice your members’ attendance and we will do our best to accommodate you.
We would also like to invite your club’s participation in a public outreach event. For example, if some of your members have solar observing gear, and are willing to share it with the public, we will turn the patio outside the convention center entrance into a solar observatory during this event. In return, we will express our gratitude by publicly thanking them for volunteering. Plus, any solar volunteers will have free admission to the Showcase.
