    I'm just happy we managed to take down the stand and get out within the hour! The previous year we were still sat there at 7pm waiting for the couriers!

    The part with DB walking is crying out for George Bakers- Little Green Bag playing over the top.

    Hope they don't show me dropping a banner too quickly, it was an accident honest!!!! I know those things are spring loaded as well as I've made them up before but it just went pop out of my hand

    Oh it just shows me having a go at Tonys not-so accurate watch lol

    Tradeshows are interesting things. The first year we spent the Monday freezing cold waiting for hardware to turn up and watching the chippies building stands. It didn't exactly take long to set up the limited furniture we had. It didn't take long to pack up either since we did not have a lot there.

    The second year we had a lot more kit and it did take ages to make sure it was all packed up and with couriers. Chasing round other stands to hand things back took time too.

    This year was organised, suppliers on hand to help dismantle kit and a willing and able bunch of people who were happy to carry boxes to cars / cabs / vans.

    Still, when you have spent a day watching certain stands being built it does make you a bit worried about going on to them. They wobble just a bit too much for me to be happy.

    I don't think I would want to mess with the woman on the loud speaker, she sounds angry!

    She's lovely in real life, my friends know her and said that next time I am down they will give me her number so I can get her to come out and meet me then we can meet the voice of the tannoy

    But you don't mess with the overlord, think of her as Big Brother in a way, when she says will the owners of a white ford transit van registration BX57WSD please move your vehicle immediately as its blocking the service lane you do not argue with her and leave it (otherwise it ends up clammed, towed and crushed )

    I'm sure she is. Until she opens her mouth.
