I really like boat shows, not just for work - I look forward to them like mini holidays.
Having Earls Court back will be great (I hope!) I went as a young kid with my Dad and continued to go right up until it moved to poxy Excel. Certainly I shall go to both, it is interesting to see how Excel evolves.
The funny thing about the EC one though, I put myself down as an interested party as soon as the news broke, I have written emails and letters since asking for info and I have now emailed to ask about trade tickets. Guess what, no response. Wierd.
Still it is a great venue and I cannot wait to see how it works out.
