All of the above can be done.
I have done radio health checks before for the aviation market at a weekend show, no reason why this could not be set up for this event.

Aimed at Leisure Ribbers we would run a number of workshops with a few guest speakers and maybe an evening RIB blast before a few beers. The following day would be free to attend the show. The plan would be to keep the cost low.

Does this sound of interest?
Very Interesting Indeed would even make it my weeks holiday Please put me down on your list of who to contact if you have one.Thanks Peter.
