Just back from a great couple of days at Dental Showcase, good content and the excellent networking opportunities. I have made my feelings about the Venue, ExCel, pretty clear in the past. Dreadful to reach by road or rail, everything within a few miles is over priced and the vast majority of people attending, both exhibitors and delegates seem to share my opinion.
I spent a great deal of my time pursuing and clarifying a host of business opportunities which seem to be coming thick and fast. Some very useful meetings with people who want to do things rather than just talking about how they can steal each other’s business.
I heard a tale that there seemed to be a “coachload” of Eastern European Dental teams who were intent on filling their bags with not only freebies but also anything that wasn’t nailed down. As ever, in spite of the reliability of the person who passed on the information, I took this as rumour as I hadn’t encountered the phenomenon personally.
However, when I was leaving ExCel, I spotted the evidence.
