    I'll see if I can set up a poll...
    I think just about all of the sailing demographic uses websites though... And all of the information was there....
    You never know, I might be right!

    And +1 for that. My feedback focussed on the lack of a guide to what you find where and when, except by buying a ridiculously priced guide, and the complete absence of any clear signage to help you find your way around the show. Anybody who pays for admission should get a decent guide in with the price.

    Like Cantata, the 3 shows in one went over my head, unless one of the shows was the lady who asked me at least twice inside an hour whether I have a will - perhaps I look to be in need of one? Really, a stand marketing a will writing service has no place in a boat show.

    However, I had a good half day out, meeting all sorts of people that I don't see often enough, got an answer on an electronics interfacing issue (sadly, not the answer I wanted, but now I know) and managed a few glasses of wine from the Moody Owners Association to get me ready for an evening out in London on an altogether different line of business, so I can't complain too much.

    At the show, and since, I've spoken to a fair few of the exhibitors I met there, and all put it down as a success in terms of sales and business leads. In all cases, they're planning to do it again next year. I don't know who the customers are, but something must be going right with this show, although I don't see it ever recovering to the glory days at Earls Court. Who nicked the Guiness stand?

    Looking at the age of most club members that will writing company probably sees a good market!
