Making the most of Kegworth

Oh, and despite what you think of the music or the system, its nice to acknowledge the amount of effort and expense an exhibitor has gone to with a nod, smile or a thank you.

Absolutely. Leaving a room rolling your eyes, shaking your head and tutting would NOT be good wamming!

Take some of your own music on vinyl and/or CD - most rooms will happily play a track or two if you ask. 

If there are seats available, sit down and listen. Most systems sound better in the seats than in the corridor. :)

Don't expect to get to every room, even though it can be done, but choose the ones that pique your interest when you see them listed on the brochure or spreadsheet.

Talk to other visitors about the systems that they have enjoyed listening to.

Have fun! Nobody is trying to sell you anything.

The couple of times I went to Scalford, we did manage to get to see all the rooms, but it really is a bit of a stretch to do that all in one day. Possibly slightly easier at Kegworth because it isn't a rabbit warren and all the rooms are pretty close to each other. Best select a short list from the programme and then do as many of the others as you can once you are done with the short list.

At the later Scalford shows everyone where given a name tag and crayon (nothing sharp allowed), This was great so as we could recognise others and introduce ourselves and have a bit of a banter. 

This was not available at Kegworth - maybe a rethink. 

I'm going to introduce myself to everyone and will probably be asked to leave by some....

Especially if I show them some of my CD's. I'll be wearing a home made name tag, if I can find my crayons...

Entry to room 19 will require a certified letter guaranteeing that you have taken your meds that day. Looking forward to meeting you Ade.

Nothing can be guaranteed... But I will be there.

I haven't looked yet at the spreadsheet as has been suggested previously, so I will be drawing up a shortlist of people or systems I'm interested in.

Who's in this room....

Also (applicable to my case at least) - 

- Bring your music on a mobile device so you can play it via headphone out or stream via AirPlay.

- There are rooms (or is it just one room?) that are not in the brochure (because lazy people who are late exhibit in these rooms and the organisers allow them to do that!), so look out for any extra rooms, e.g. room 12 😀

All,

the room allocations have been done by the organisers learning from last year, plus this time we have the whole hotel (last year there were non exhibitors next to us) it was much easier I am told

  1. all exhibitors rooms are on the first 2 floors only which should make getting around easier (top floor is sleeping rooms only)
  2. plus the large systems space of course, which I am sure will be popular
  3. all exhibitors are in 'superior' rooms (whatever they are!)
  4. it is a very simple layout at this hotel, it does not require many past visits, a troop of boy scouts, a GPS and a leaving trail of breadcrumbs like Scalford to stand a hope of finding all the rooms ;) 
  5. there is no fountain unfortunately
  6. there is a gym which apparently was very busy on Saturday evening :rofl:
