I beg you to feed @GrumbleDook as I don't want his tummy grumblydooking all night in the hotel room as he is hungry for his Chocolate fix....

I'm STILL undecided about driving or publically transporting myself. Anyone know the deal with parking? Is it mostly taken up by exhibitors or do they have their own separate parking lot?

Most exhibitors will stay over and so either park at their hotel or have used arranged transport to get there. The spaces tend to be used by visitors to shows (or at least that is how it was explained to the Visitors Advisory Group when ExCeL was looked at as an alternative venue).

I'm pretty sure that one car park fits all (except lorries and coaches that have their own area)

Personally, I would not drive there on any day at all!

I will be there on Thursday. Half day from school. Excel is very close to me than Earls court. Need some Edugeek Stuffs.

Me and a couple of others are traveling up from the South West on the Scomis bus Friday. First time I've been to BETT, so much too see!

I've got the BETT App on my iPhone and am just marking up things to do, places to go and what I want to see. This year's App is much better than previous versions... I'm just hoping the mobile signal can cope at ExCeL... it definitely couldn't last year at Olympia!

Of course, worst case you can hang out with the EG gang. Just bear in mind, it's often full of kids, so it's just like being in the corridors at school.

It's good, but a bit cumbersome, i found, though i haven't checked the last update, maybe they altered it. I made a massive list on the website interactive planner, and was going to edit it, and found it's disappeared. So now hacking the PDF to add in some extra stands and seminars

I'm definitely there Friday, Saturday and probably Thursday too. I haven't made my mind up about Wednesday yet.
26th January 2013, 06:46 PM #194
Monopoly, can I be the car
26th January 2013, 07:58 PM #195
Stupid stupid question. I cant find the bit on the BETT website where you can annotate the plan with the stands you want to visit.
I was looking at yesterday and now I cant find it and nor can mrwITch
Am I going completely mad??
