The Photography Show 2020 planning!

I think quite clearly we can be better organised for next year so why not start now?

Here are my thoughts:

1. Monday is the most popular day.
2. Meeting later in the day is better so that people who need their gear cleaned can seal with the check-in queuing.
3. The customised E-group badge idea was a great success Might I suggest adding a bright colour to make it stand out a bit more?
4. I will set up a WhatsApp group in advance of the show so that we can keep in touch (no obligation to use, but in my experience with other events involving groups, it's an excellent way of dynamically keeping in touch).
5. The presentation sessions are important so finding a gap between sessions is important.
6. If it's feasible for some of us, maybe we could investigate finding a restaurant after the show for a group dinner?

Let's get this discussion going now

Ian

In addition, I will produce a newsletter mailing to bring the plans to the attention of those who may have missed the posts on the forum. Best to do this in plenty of time - say a couple of months before the show.

Does not clash with Crufts, so it will be safe to walk around the site.

Didn't think it clashed with Crufts this year? Comicon is the best clash as there are lots of interesting people to take shots of. Didn't clash with that either this year unfortunately.
