I might go as I haven't been for a few years. But it could depend on the weather. I won't fancy a long drive if it's inclement.

This will be the first time I am visiting the show. Free entry, so why not? I’ll be there on Monday 16th. Anyone else likely to be around for a meet up?

How come it’s free - is this an Alamy perk? Disappointed to see the red and green arrow thing here, it was tested on the SS contributor discussion site and several regulars stopped contributing including myself as a result.

Working photographers get free entry, nothing to do with alamy

Hmm, not sure I qualify, I’ll take a look. Thanks for the response. As I recall the parking charge accounted for a large part of the day’s expenses but still worth it for the special deals.

Indeed, that is the case. I was also advised by a colleague not to go at the weekend as it is so much more busy. Plus the Monday and Tuesday are geared more towards professionals with relevant masterclasses available. I signed up for one.

Obviously it's going to depend where you live but train is a nice way to get there, and you save on those eye-watering parking charges, it does get very busy though. If you live near London then the "Societies" trade show is probably a more relaxed way of looking at cameras & printing papers etc., a much more limited range of course:

I've been going to this show for a number of years and attended the pro conferences.  All they are is blatant self-promotion for the speakers, apart from Joe McNally a few years ago.  I don't bother with them any more.

If it's man flu you have then, quite clearly, you'll be lucky if you're discharged from hospital by then.  Thoughts and prayers...

I’ve made a horlicks of my diary and now can’t come on the Monday so will be there Saturday/Sunday. I had hoped to avoid the bigger crowds at the weekend, but heyho. Anyway if anyone will be there over the weekend, perhaps we can have another meet up then.
