Well, it was like selling tickets to the Rolling Stones- they went within minutes. Well to be precise, 4 hours, which means that the conference is now fully subscribed with a waiting list. The team sat in my studio last night, with celebratory bubbly and watched the spreadsheet fill up. Even we were surprised by the response- and we had a fair idea of how many people were keen. Thankyou to all who registered- it meant finding an internet connection at 7.30pm and telling the people around you to go away until you had finished (not always easy).

Due to all the hard work and planning and our stellar line up of speakers and workshops, we think this will be a conference to remember and the start of many (did I say that? will the committee throw things at me now?).

Congratulations to you all. You must be thrilled. I sincerely hope it is the beginning of many future such events. If nothing else the huge response shows there is a need for this kind of thing. And I believe this need is only going to grow. And I'm sure in future help will come from round the country to make it happen. Count me in for one!!
