Cheers peeps - was good to meet you.
Cheers for the lanyard! lol
And thanks for the Sankore IWB software advice - planning on trying that early next week.
Now go play with the Skoog for me - I'm missing it already!!
Just jumping in here after a 5 hour journey back from London to my house after dropping my Dad and @rich_tech off (two bad accidents on the motorway - one in Reading and one in Cardiff) - want to say thanks for the welcome at the stand. It's the first time I've met some of you and it was great to put faces to names.
Lanyard was excellent and also the phone cloth.
I also got to sign the poster What happens to that?
Thank you all. Was good to meet some of you yesterday. Hope everyone had a good time at Bett.
No worries guys. The same for us really, you just get to know everyone by their alterego! We are mostly up and getting ready for all our trips back.
The poster is going to be framed and brought to all events I believe
Safe journeys guys, I was home just after 9 last night.
It was a nice day out and an interesting first time up to BETT with @garethedmondson and was nice to meet some people and put faces to names and nicks, a lot to take in first time I thought but I look forward to next time I attend
I had a great time at BETT this year... it's so hard to work out who everyone else is. Compulsory avatar stickers on the name badges next year before you get pizza, I think!
Plus one for @elsiegee40's idea, it does get tough to remember faces you only see twice a year, and it'd be nice to be able to accost those who you've chatted with extensively online but who might stroll right past you at BETT without you knowing, IYSWIM!
It was, as ever, great to see so many of you again, and the poster you all signed looks fantastic (there will be a hi-res image of this made available for you all). We are all finally on our way home now - John and I are on the train as I type this - and judging by the look of utter exhaution of all of the stand staff in the hotel lobby this morning we have worn ourselves out completely. I'm looking forwards to getting home to my family, having a coffee that I don't have to pay a small fortune for and sleeping in my own bed.
See you all next year
Echo the comments above, been an excellent week at BETT, yes for those who thought we just appeared like magic on the Wednesday morning, this is now day 7 of BETT for a number of us and we are completly shattered and ready for our own beds, showers and familys. Thanks to all the great people I met and talked technology with, it was great to meet so many members and catch up with ones met before.
Here is to BETT 2013 at ExCeL
Great time had by all. Bett only works
Because of the size of our membership, its great talking to everyone and very interesting exactly how much clout someone wearing an edugeek shirt has at the show.
I hope everyone managed to get what they needed from the show.
As with dos_box and the rest of the team now slowly winding my way home on the train.
At home, legs up resting and catching up with posts. A big thank you to @Dos_Box and @ZeroHour for letting all of us who did the stand have such a fun but hard working experience. Chatting to a few exhibitors on Friday they admitted that they are pretty jealous of the relationship you have with the members and that the show would not be the same without the stand ... and the lanyards everywhere!
As for avatars ... I think I was pretty easy to recognise on Friday!
