Just a note about the Small Business show. Very worthwhile, we are thinking of going to the next one (in Manchester) as exhibitors.
Had several long chats with very useful people, such as Trevor Baylis Brands, who I have just sent an NDA off to.
I recommend the show, if only to see the vast sums spent my the government in it’s various forms! The Patent Office were there, but no-one realised it, since they just re-branded totally weirdly, in orange. The only clue was a few brouchures I spotted, but I had avoided them already (this was at gone 4, after closing!) as they looked like yet another “new media” stand…
