I'd also recommend you have a listen to the last BETTRadio podcast too as it has a good guide on there about exhibitors can look good and be nice ... ranging from not reading the paper on the stand / eating a pasty through to using Party Feet / OrthaHeel to save your feet if there for all 4 days!

Buy good footwear is a must and ensure its worn in, since I switched from Shoes to Boots my feet don't feel as tired and certainly find it more comfortable to be wandering the halls in them than shoes and ensure they are well worn in

If you don't have access to business cards you can always just prepare some printed labels instead.

Is there a way to register as a private individual without giving them my work details? Last time I got in trouble after some suppliers started spamming a colleague's E-Mail address and phone with my name!

just make up some details and create a hotmail/gmail account for random garbage/one use?

First post! Been an member for nearly a year but never got round to posting!
Sorry if its off topic but does anyone know if the underground is still running between Earls Court and Kensington Olympia? I heard somewhere that it was a very reduced or non existent service now?

Pretty much accurate. Best bet would be overground services if possible. Been a while since I used London rail services in that area.

Completely agree about it being busy and limited in the past. Recon I will walk it this year!

I often walk too. It only takes about 20 minutes from Earl's Court
