By late Thursday afternoon, almost everyone looks tired. The exhibition closed about an hour and a half ago (4 p.m. London time). I went up to the audiotorium for the wrapup session only to discover there wasn’t one. "Everybody just got up and left," said Karen Blakeman. "I think they’d absorbed all the information they could handle."
She’s probably right. It was a very intense three days.
Although several old-timers told me they thought the exhibition had many fewer visitors, Karen reported that the UKOLUG (UK Online Users Group) stand had been very busy directing visitors to the exhibit stands. And I noticed lots of contracts being signed and business meetings being conducted. So I’m convinced that most exhibitors had a profitable time in London.
Karen also told me the winners of the UKOLUG best stand awards. For large stands, the winner was TFPL. The small stand winner was FreshMinds.
