Man, talk about prophetic! I basically put this in as a joke, since Autodesk had recently narrowly decided against a boycott of South Africa when threatened with being blacklisted by a U.S. group. Things change over the years, and sure enough on August 7th through 10th 1991, the first ACAD Expo Africa was held, midway between Johannesburg and Pretoria (OK, I got the city wrong), and I represented Autodesk at the show. On November 25, 1992 Autodesk opened its first subsidiary on the African continent, Autodesk Ltd. (Africa) in Sandton, a suburb north of Johannesburg; Bill Gordon was the first Area Manager for Africa.
