    It'll be funny visiting this year and when anyone at the RM stand tries to scan my badge I'll tell 'em to bugger off. If they wanna send me an email, look me up on the internal address book! I hope I'm still eligible for the freebies! :P

    Other than that and pizza's at 12.15 (yummy!) it'll just be meets and greets with sales and account contacts. Will try to back off on some of the useless freebies because they only end up lying around or break my back and shoulder carrying them on the day!

    I'm on my way down to BETT 2010 and we have a small presence on the Edugeek stand. I'll be at the show this afternoon... Feel free to come and find me.

    Once again i'm missing BETT this year, after 5 years of asking the school have decided it might be worth going. Only problem is my partner is getting close to her expected date and dont want to risk being 4+ hours away if it comes early.

    Maybe next year

    I've requested a demo of Openhive, to stay in the loop as it were.

    Even though our whole borough is committed to the London MLE (Fronter), which I find one of the most clunky, unintuitive pieces of software I've ever come across.

    I'm hoping there'll be nicer integration with SIMS, especially following Capita's acquisition of Synetrix.

    One company I visited (we're already a customer of theirs, and I went to get a demo of the new version) refused to tell me some of the features, as they say that they're the only product of that type with those features, and they don't want their competitors finding out what they're doing! I'm all for secrecy of new releases, but surely once the product is out and an existing customer is asking, it is okay to talk about it. Madness. For that, and a few other reasons, I'm inclined to recommend we move to their competitors rather than upgrade!

    I think you will find it was Capita Outsourcing not the Capita Childrens Service that is in the process of buying Synetrix.

    I know they are the same company but you may not see any close working. I would assume that Capita are more interested in the networks and LA contracts as opposed to product.
