    What do we do about visitors. I want to bring a 2 people with me that aren't in the IT industry, one of them is driving us down the 188 miles from East Yorkshire so I will be stuck if I can't bring people in. Also, can somebody save me freebies. I have a that going on a Saturday means there won't be many left. Its my first time at BETT and I aren't going with work so has anybody got any tips? My plan is arrive Saturday morning around 10am and spend the day at the show then explore the nightlife in London and drive back up Sunday. Any tips anybody??

    @jdoldridge Just register them as consultants (as in this post BETT 2013). There has always been freebies on the Saturdays when I have been before (I am going again on Saturday this year).

    Yeah I have never had problems with freebies on a Saturday! Alots get loads of bits coz like @elsiegee40 said, they are trying to get rid of things so they don't have to take it back with them!

    I am really looking forward more and more now we had ergo computing in today at work demoing their Windows 8 tablets (Great product by the way, seems very robust) and they kind of made me decide to go I will wear some kind of ID badge with my edugeek name on it as I have seen that other people may be doing this. That way if you see me, feel free to say hello
