After reading all the topics appertaining to this years show, I am glad that I did not travel the 250 miles approx to visit this venue, even though I won tickets by entering a competition
in the What Hi-Fi magazine.
Just one comment why can't these Shows be held more centrally in the country i.e :- N E C at
Birmingham or other venues ?

Regards :- FROGIT

I'll pass your feedback onto our exhibitions team, who run this event.

Back in its Live! days we once held the event at the NEC, I remember (@1999?) - i'll certainly bring up location, as well as the many other issues raised, when we meet with the exhibitions team tomorrow.

It's good to hear that you'll be taking up the various concerns posted (mine among them!) with the event organisers - I hope you can share the outcome.

It would certainly help me feel that our views are valued.

Is there any possibility that the main lessons identified and actions resulting from these lessons would be made public? It would make me feel better if I thought that my experiences were being addressed and appropriate measures taken to ensure that similar issues do not arise in the future, making for better events for me, other members of the public and resulting for a more positive showcase for WhatHifi.

We all make mistakes. That's what being human is all about. It's when we keep making the same mistakes that we deserve a roasting.

You mean like a public enquiry? Seems a bit OTT, but I am sure we will make clear what we will be doing to make 2009's show even better...

Yes, a public enquiry would be OTT.

But a recognition of the issues and the way to address them in future might be opportunity to counter some the negative feedback on the forum at the moment.

Hi Clare

We're almost a couple of months on from your planned meeting with the event organisers. It would be great if you could share any of the outcomes from what you discussed.

Sorry, I did on another thread - in short, much more emphasis on hi-fi for 2009 as an objective, complete with dedicated area plus much more floor space. Meetings with many manufacturers lined up by the exhibitions team, it seems.

I've got another meeting with them later this month, once we're back from CES, so should get update then.

That sounds great - I missed your response in the other thread - apologies.

I don't know yet if I'll be able to make the next show, but if I do I hope to provide some upbeat feedback!
