    BETT 2013: Obligatory Freebies thread

    By my watch they'll have been let in by now, so the first few geeks will be starting their hoard of BETT freebies.

    C'mon guys and girls, what's on offer this year?

    I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed by the freebies on offer. In fact, there was little to nothing that really interested me in the whole show. Austerity times are definitely on show this year at BETT.

    I got a frog cup, and am trying for at least 2 more. Plus some others I saw, but didn't get a chance to try for.

    There's also an iDevice case seller giving out 12 iPad stylus', but our IT co-ord couldn't get one. I have a plan...

    If we understood the offer correctly, Meraki are giving out free wireless access points to people who view their webinar.

    I've been taken back by the glut of Pick 'n' Mix at a quite a number of stands; great if you need a sugar rush to get round.

    Overall, as always a tiring but informative day - I always go to these events and wonder if we should be doing that, and this, and that too; but overall it gives us a nudge but we're doing ok as is thank you.

    My main freebie I guess was a Mug and Pen - you only have to carry it all back on the train with you.

    Meraki certianly do give you out trial units, as it then becomes completely useless if you don't purchase it and a license for the cloud controller, Although they seem a bit slack in asking for them back.

    At present sitting on my desk is am MR16, MX80 and a MS something or other 48 port poe switch.

    MendIT have some mugs to give away.
    Smoothwall - bottle opener keyrings. I really wanted a mug as my colleague broke mine.
    Frog - Stress balls with funny horns.2013-01-30 22.34.51.jpg
    Lots of pens from everywhere.
    Impero - A4 ringbound notepads if they like you.
    Richo - pots of coloured pencil crayons
    Redstor & Richo - cotton shopping bags.
    Joskos - Computer shaped foam stress thingy (can't call it a ball!).

    I was disappointed not to find SoftCat.

    Actually it was a good day today. Managed to bump into an old friend (Heather at Loxit) and met up with a number of potentially useful suppliers (@Net-Ctrl).

    I forget which company it is, but they have a Caterham F1 car in the mall outside the main hall (roughly entrance N6).

    I got a free cable tester. I attached the Smoothwall bottle opener to my car keys.

    The Pick a Mix on the Stone stand is good.

    I had too much of this and felt sick :-(

    I got a torch from a company called copylogic
    stress balls + bottle opener from Smoothwall
    Purple stress cat from Softcat
    Edugeek Lanyard and bottle opener :-)
    Lots of pens.....

    Nothing massively exciting really
