London Slutz & Sounds Expo

Just wondering if anyone's going to Sounds Expo in London this year?? I'm going (haven't decided which day yet) and it would be nice to hook up if any of you are going to be there.

Hi David,

I went last year (travelled down from Newcastle) and I was dissapointed.

Hope it's better this year !

Yes thanks for starting this thread.

There WILL be an oficial Gearslutz Dinner on Sat 16th of April.

Now.. the odd / awkward thing is... the show shuts it's doors at 4pm on Sat..

So for anyone traveling down I suggest getting to the show early.... and planing to do some shopping in the west end before dinner!

I'll jump in quickly here: THREE reasons for not chosing the 16th for the dinner:

1. F.A. Cup semi-finals... (ok, I know that won't convince you)
2. I can't make it due to a gig in Bournemouth of all places

see... this is how much I want to hang out with you guys...
Old 23rd March 2005
Restaraunt will probably be in Chinatown, central London.

What time is the kick off for semi final?

See, the other days for the show are 'weekdays' and I figured not everyone will be able to get that time off to travel to Wembley...

What days do our estemed Low End moderators Labs & Dr Delta get into the UK? (they will be at the Dinner)

4pm close

Now that's bizarre

Probably wont come to the expo, but will see you at the food

Old 23rd March 2005
I am developing ideas for stuff to do from 4pm untill dinner...

Wembly may end up being the dinner destination if one new plan gets organised...

I wonder if the show is ending on Sat at 4pm BECAUSE of the football... any insight into this situation is greatly appreciated...

thanks in advance!

Football kicks off at 12.15 - so as I said not even an excuse... I do get your point about the weekday business... but c'mon Friday is not really a weekday is it..???

Re the dinner, you dont have to be a regular poster or have a lot of studio gear to come along! Dont be shy, even if you lurk and haven't regestered you are welcome (why havent you regestered? )

Me labs and delta will be there in force!!! (I'll have persuaded gus that its a great idea by then - he may be a little woozy from the after-affects of the pills, but what the hey!!!)

Lets all meet early on in the day how does 10.30 - 11.00 sound to everyone. Anyone who is more familiar with the venue could suggest a rendevous point!!

see ya there
