Chris has tipped me off that you might need some more stewards - I would be happy to help on the day also. I have a background in IT sales and marketing so I can turn on the charm for the punters!

I would just need to be briefed on where everything is etc. (Perhaps you have already produced an FAQ guide for stewards, with a map of the venue - where the loos are etc). Also will you give stewards a distinctive badge or a yellow vest or something?

Yes please, another pair of hands will be very welcome.  I'm drawing up briefing notes for exhibitors and the helpers over the next week or so.  I'll PM you soon.  Cheers, Jon

Why not just use Kenley Station and walk, it looks to be right next door?
I wouldn't walk from Kenley unless you like hiking up steep hills and on muddy paths through fields!!!

Riddlesdown station is the best bet if you're happy to walk for about 10-15mins to the venue, including some uphill bits. It has a half hourly train service.

The show has a bus link from Purley Station to the show but it's just a minibus from what I've seen so there may be a bit of a wait if a lot of people plan to go that way, especially at the beginning of the day.

Bad news. I will not be able to attend the show this year due to a clash with family commitments.

I apologise for the short notice and should have picked up on the date clash beforehand. 😢

Looking good, Gavin.  Final couple of weeks now, and I hope that it's all coming together OK.  Mind you, after this one, I think I shall take up model aircraft or knitting to recover....

There is a "Meeting Point" in the centre of the concourse at Victoria,  also there is a Wetherspoons very visible from the main concourse, so meeting up should not be too difficult.  Both of these are clearly visible from the concourse serving platforms 12 to 19.
