    BETT Supplier barrage.

    So how many of us have returned this Monday to a barrage of supplier follow ups since visiting BETT last week?

    I count 7 so far today.

    Emails not so much.

    I got scanned a few times while wondering around without having set foot in their stand (not quote sure what that was about), so not quote sure what I've been signed up for with them.

    Oh, yeah... Drive-by-scanning.

    You get used to it. Next year, put something over the barcode on one side of the badge and walk around with that side showing. Flip it over to get scanned.

    Should help with the random scans.

    Impero tried that with me, had to gently brush his scanner away.

    - Every year I create a new email BETTxxxx@......., and usually virtual number to go with it; I remembered to do my email, but completely forgot about the phone number this year. I should have a check list to complete for BETT. The idea is that when I think I've had enough of BETT stuff, I can switch it off.

    Do like I do, print off 2, 1 legit, and make 1 line thicker in Paint/photoshop for the dud one, makes the barcode come up with an error!

    Yeah, I got junk from loads of companies last year after going but half the companies I actually wanted to contact me never did! One of which we were very keen on and it would've been a big contract too! Oh well, their loss.

    None, cos my pass was registered to someone elses email address.
    Even though I got sent the Bett 2014 thing through the post with a pass, I was not on the system when I got there so they couldnt reprint a pass for me.

    You realise there's a special hell for people like you, right?

    I'll meet you at the bar.
