    I'm sure he said it was this year that was under threat and told to hang fire on it, but maybe this year is the last. I know there is a lot going to be shuffling around though, like the motor show did when i moved from the NEC to London.

    On bett moving fom Olympia it wont happen main reasons is it is not just a uk conference it is posted all about europe and is one of the biggest in europe. The one you are thinking of is the education show this i beleve has moved about a bit and it mainly for uk. Bett even had visitors for the usa last year thats how big it is. And Olympia is near a big international airport.

    EMAP are unlikely to move from Olympia ... yes, it is true that it is now so large that there is limited room to expand and so some companies are using extra space at Olympia 2 to allow them to showcase some stuff (this year it was RM who also hosted a number of working parties).

    There is a lot of international money in London ... and if it wasn't at Olympia it would still be *somewhere* in London.

    I can't wait to see what it will be like in 2012 ... now *that* will be a year that will have a lot going on!

    Re: this might look dumb but what is bett

    There is something rather spectacular happening in London in the summer that you just *know* that *every* tradeshow in London is going to have a reference to in their themes.

    For BETT it could be old school arcades games (Daley Thomson's Decathlon, etc), it could be people on stands (Roll up, roll up ... come and meet Jonathon Edwards!) or it might just be stuff that is actually relevant to the event itself (demonstrations of Dartfish or Game Breaker).

    Yes ... you have guessed it ... there is a sporting event with a strange branding logo that can be used and abused coming to you soon.
