I believe this is their first foray into this particular type of venture (I'm sure they do lots of other meetings etc) and things were a bit cramped when I arrived at 9.30 to set up for 10 a.m.
Tables are one thing but they bing with them the need for surrounding space - which was missing hence I ended up in the lobby, alone - boo hoo. Other were in the hall leading tot he market room so I think I was better off then them.
Returning to the main room when things had settled down I found it looked very cororful and organised and I was a bit sorry for myself alone, in the lobby with none to chat too watching the patrons checking out (some having had an interesting evening the night before I think).
