BOSTON COMPUTER SOCIETY TO HOLD 7TH ANNUAL MEGAMEETING COMPUTER SHOW

 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- MegaMeeting, the 7th annual computer show and exposition sponsored by the Boston Computer Society, is scheduled for April 3-4 in Boston. The show will be held at the University of Massachusetts, Harbor Campus (next to the JFK Library). Show hours are Saturday from 10:00am - 6:00pm and Sunday from noon to 6:00pm. Free parking is available.
 "This is the nation's biggest and best show by computer users for computer users, said Bob Grenoble, president of the Boston Computer Society. "The public can enjoy more than 110 free workshops, 80 exhibitor booths and many special demonstrations offered by the BCS' 50 user and special interest groups.
 MegaMeeting events are designed to be of interest to a wide range of attendees, from children and families to large corporate and small business users. Several BCS groups are sponsoring special events -- including the first general public "test drives" of virtual reality technology, where users immerse themselves in a completely artificial environment. Additionally, the BCS Consultants and Entrepreneurs Group has organized a seminar track of special interest to current or budding small business owners.
 Corporate exhibitors include MicroSoft, Lotus, WordPerfect, Apple, Caere, PC Genius, Symantec, CompUSA and Corel.
 "MegaMeeting is a great place to see the fun side of computing while getting great deals on computer hardware and software," said Pam Bybell, MegaMeeting show manager. "No other computer show offers so many educational opportunities, so many exhibitors, or so many special events -- all for an incredibly low $5.00 admission fee allowing attendance both days. There's even free parking!"
 In addition to the national and local vendors, a large "BCS Pavilion" will feature the best of the BCS user groups. Group volunteers will be selling public domain software and CD ROMs, distributing group newsletters and information, and offering technical assistance to attendees. BCS members receive free admission. Non- members pay $5.00, covering both days, and children under 12 are free. For more information, call the Boston Computer Society at 617/252-0600.
 The Boston Computer Society is the world's largest non-profit personal computer organization. The BCS has 24,000 members in 40 countries and was founded in 1977.
