It was set-up day at the Olympia exhibition hall. If you’re into blueprints, here’s the floor plan (PDF).
As trade show build-up goes, the hall was a sea of activity this morning, with fork lifts carting huge crates and palates loaded with boxes. There were ladders everywhere. And no matter what aisle I went down, there were construction crews working on half-built stands.
If you’ve never gotten to see a major trade show go up, it’s like watching a neighborhood of houses being built all at once. And to look at it today, you would never believe it will all be done by tomorrow.
Here, at Thomson’s stand, workmen installed overhead lights in a recessed nook.
