    On a serious note ... no, the event is free to attendees. Looking forward to seeing you.
    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....

    As for looking at I have a list of things to look at, a list of stands that wish to abduct me, suppliers and account managers to say Hi to and of course looking forward to meeting hundreds of members again who will be Hi John we chatted last year about X and my brain will have in some cases forgotten as we met hundreds of members last year so please don't feel bad if I or one of the other Edu-BETT team look a bit blank as we did literally have hundreds of people last year visit (and I'm getting old and my brain is fading....)

    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)

    Many of the exhibitors will be staying in hotels and will probably leave their cars there rather than try riving to ExCeL each day. However, on Saturday I imagine the car park will be more busy due to the DLR partial closure and the exhibitors wanting to go home straight after BETT closes.

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

    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.
    Often the head honchos might not hang around, so if you want to strike a deal or meet someone in particular, best to contact the company up front.

    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

    Well, maybe a bit - us oldies have to stick together!
    But I am coming to BETT for two days this time and I will be there some hours before @bossman so I will be paying everyone a bit more attention...

    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??
