    Guys, the venue is booked and now its time to start planning for a fabulous day/night. The 2013 Sydney mini expo is on the weekend of the 1st/2nd of June 2013 so this will coincide with the Sydney Vivid festival , a dinner on the saturday night and tour of the vivd festival is planned for the saturday night which should all get us in the mood for Sundays mini.

    Where: Sydney Fish Markets (confirmed)
    When: 1st/2nd June 2013 (confirmed) dinner and vivid show on Saturday the 1st, mini on Sunday the 2nd

    Sunday Mini - 9AM to 4:30PM


    I would like people to plan to bring something for show and tell because i think after doing this for a few years that the best approach is to only spend the morning doing any presentations and then spend the rest of the afternoon just mingling and helping eachother out as ive found thats where most get the biggest benifit, hands on discussion and questions.
    So im asking what people want to discuss in the morning session and what people want to see in the afternoon session.

    Last year we had an awsome fresh seafood lunch (what better place then at the fish markets [​IMG] ) and this will be the plan again, the cost should be between $15 to $20 per person for the day including this fabulous lunch.

    Im asking for people to help organise this with me as i have a busy schedule this year, but if the last few years are anything to go off then this should be a great day for everyone to just catch up or to learn from those that have already done it. Either way everyone walks out learning something new.

    So to confirm your interest please answer the below questions so we can plan the best approach so we can make this the most succesful Sydney mini to date.

    1: Coming to the Sunday mini (Kids may be accomodated please ask if needed)
    2: Having the Sunday mini fresh seafood Lunch (kids welcome)
    3: Coming to the Vivid dinner on Saturday night (kids welcome)
    4: Just coming to Vivid on Saturday Night, no dinner (kids welcome)
    5: Would like to help to Organise
    6: What would you like to see discussed/or shown at the mini?

    Please check that you are in the below list

    We hope to see as many of you there [​IMG]

    I suppose I better grovel to the boss again! The good news is my boss was promoted to General Manager. So considering he is top dog, there will be no chance for an over rule from above! On the down side, if he says no.....I have no course for appeal!...........Will keep you posted on the outcome. I'm sure it will be fine.
