    I got scanned with no questions asked with a 'Head Teacher' badge, not quite sure how many 18 year old head teachers are in the UK...

    I'm just hoping there is no 'random visits' which i was told off about last year (No emails or contact from the supplier, just randomly turned up!)

    I've had a few suppliers try that before, just dropping in because they were passing. Guess what, I'm busy, that's why we have calendars.

    If a company did that with me they'd immediately go on my list of "NEVER USE THESE SUPPLIERS"

    There was a supplier who shall remain nameless who last year was standing at the entrance next to the entrance staff scanning as everyone went in. And often saying they had to be scanned. I have a dim view of then as a result. Think they were royally chastised by i2i as a result too

    Didn't get any drive-bys, actually quite a few stands didn't bother at all! Then again I only had three hours to wander round. Atomwide spam filter does a good job of catching it though and it gets lost anyway in the torrent of supply agency garbage that lands in my inbox.

    The bigger pain is the run up to the event as we moved domain on the LA EMail system and I sign up on the new domain whilst BETT sends me spam to pressure my old domain into signing up!

    Badges in pockets, and only removed when you want to. 3 of us went with only 4 scanns total (of the companies that we wanted). the way forward...

    @IWDave... did you just randomly email me?

    I was trying to work out which supplier has drive-by-scanned me.

    Now I just need to work out HOW you got my email... I don't remember giving it out. [I didn't drink THAT much]

    Look into my eyes, not around me eyes, into my eye, 3,2,1, you're under. Give me your email address. 3,2,1, you're back in the room. - See - Simple!

    Yup, that'd do it.

    I am very careful who I allow to scan me - quite a lot of stands had scanners that didn't work so I could give them the email address of the teacher interested in whatever it was.
    I have had one email so far- always know as they are addressed to Ms Wi Tch !

    Random email from BETT again. [Not been that many, TBH]

    Couldn't find them on the BETT exhibitor list [looks like they WERE there], so I sent a message back congratulating them on getting onto my blacklist...

    10 seconds later - Phone call from them. Hung up because I don't have time for sales calls. [my phone could have cut out... The signal is dodgy here.]

    20 seconds later - threats via email.


    Levett Consultancy.

    Avoid them. They don't take rejection well.
