    Cleared cookies but same result. Don't let me make work for you if its a hassle, just checking it was me rather than universal problem.

    My guess would be - half a dozen people, eating in London - take out or pub style meals - so you're talking probably £8 per breakfast, £10 or so for lunch, £15 or so for evening + drinks.

    It soon adds up.

    No BETT simply put not allowed to bring your own food in have to use on site catering which means if want to eat, if want to give food to our members like pizza then £200 which cover it just...

    Is it rip off heck yes but do we have a choice nope.

    Then take into account we try and pay for meals for members in evening if we can..

    Pizza at lunchtime for about 30 hungry members will cost at least £80 per day. We averaged seeing around 30-40 members each day last year and we expect that we will see double that at BETT 2009. This doesn't cover beverages during the day ... and even those those on teh stand have access to the exhibitors lounge it is only *slightly* cheaper than paying the scary prices at the regular cafes / butty bars. In the first year it cost me over £150 for the days we were down there.

    The stand has, on average, 7 people a day working on it. This gives time for those who are only down for the day to get out and about (a 7 hour day will realistacally mean 3 hours on the stand) so we have those to cover too.

    Breakfast is covered by whichever partner looks after the hotels for us, but evening meals for those that stay over is usually covered by us where possible, though we have had help from partners in the past. Other times the cost has been footed by DB himself as a thank you to those helping out. We will be looking at the other costs shortly to see what deals can be done, but we want to make BETT a good experience for our members who make it there. Unfortunately that costs.

    BETT is expensive. Stupidly so. Ditto all other expos. Licence to print money. Stand like ours, including staffing costs, transport, the works.. knocking on to 20 grand. I think EduGeek does very well for the money, mainly on begged & borrowed kit.

    Edit: and it would be very easy to spend more, we had stand contractors alone asking that much this year.

    We will be endeavouring to help (net connection and a UTM is first port of call, and Tony, do LMK if there's anything else we can do), not only because as a sponsor it helps us, but because it is a valuable resource. It is a bit "south centric", but it is IME (and I have been going to BETT 5 or 6 years now) very useful for both exhibitors and visitors.

    In any case if it ups numbers on here, thats more resources to help folk, more folk helped, more ad-impressions (so maybe less ads) and will make the sponsorship more valuable to us (so Chris can charge more )

    Are these popups running?

    I visit the site at least once a day and get nothing

    I am using a combination of FF3, IE7, IE8 Beta, and Opera on Windows XP SP3

    I have no add blockers nor any popup blockers and edugeek.net is set as a trusted site too

    Any ideas......?

    They sure do, I'm constantly told I'm buying into the hands of BSF when accessing edugeek! Strange though, thought Wales was more PFI............
