So who is going to this then?

I am thinking about going and wondered if anyone else was. I would have to arrive part way through the day, and leave very promptly at the end, but I am still tempted....

I think it is probably more a case of being aimed at folks in the industry who will go on company expenses complete with an overnight stay at a local Holiday Inn.

If I wasn't teaching I would proabably go and put it on company expenses.

This one isn't a BVS organised thing.

However, we do have an annual conference - first one happened earlier this year and was a great success, so we are doing it all again in 2010. The provisional date is Saturday 10th April, and it will be held in the Manchester area at a venue which also does B&B.

Hope to see you there,

Now that should be possible for me, all being well and I don't forget or come on the wrong day. :oops:

Not so 'all right' when the tax man finds that my company spends more on expenses researching and meeting prospective clients then it does on real work! :lol:

If it was a woody event I could probably justify it but car stuff probably not, really. :wink:
