    Re: Freebies!!!

    Ok, for the folks that have already attended BETT this year, please could you list which stand has got some good freebies worth grabbing hold off! I'm heading down on Friday and Saturday.

    What have Microsoft got on their stand this year???

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Re: Freebies!!!

    Adobe Stand - A range of higlighter pens ...ooooh
    Some security stand gave me wine and shortbread!
    The usaual pens/pencils/posters as much as I can stuff into a bag (hey the stationary budget is tight at my school)
    If you take a picture on a USB stick to Epson they will print it in A2+ si\e for free
    Best freebie I got was Microsoft Student 2007 with Encarta. I was watching a MS seminar and they asked a question at the end, I didn't know the answer but put my hand up anyway, bluffed a half-cobbled answer and won!
    Obviously I have entered every prize draw going (last year UI won an AIO laser printer)
    Can anyone beat that?

    Good show - enjoyed meeting Grumbledook

    Annodata give you a free 512MB pen drive if you listen to their marketing talk.
    Lamp house give you a free mug and a Kitkat.
    Insight have a competition to win a 24" HP TFT.
    Lego have a keyring (hurrah!)

    Anyone you buy something off / have bought something off previously is worth visiting - they may make you nice offers for lunch and coffee

    Re: Freebies!!!

    i think i win the comp for the most freebies:
    3 * 256 pen drives
    1 * bbc/jam cup
    1 * bbc/jam bag (and been told they want a visit)
    1 * promethin board pen ( all ours keep breaking so had a winge)
    15 bottles of water and a bit of cake
    sandwich of my choice ( someone wanted to know was i ok working as a tech being disabled) he thought he upset me when i told him it was my knees not my brain (stonger words were used) so got dinner.
    i also got lots of other rubbish i had the problem that i had to keep sitting down and when i did they fillen my bag. maneged to fill big ramsys bag and bbc bag. i did get to see the guys at the stand and have already looked into vmware also putting my foot down during half term ie they are loosing the server. Next year have already been told i am going lol and also benn told next time i can say for the duration woo hoo. oh and by the way the only stand i did not get a freebie of silly mags was the coolest and most helpful stand of all cant remember the name of it but it was g89 very friendly and helpful
