These are the floor plans and sizes of the large rooms.  I don't recall the bar in the Ashby room from last year but I think I only visited 3 out of the four rooms.

Is there any news on whether the restaurant room can also be used?

Looking at the dimensions and layout, I would have thought it possible to have two systems in each of Kingston and Ashby but space would probably be to tight for this in Hathern and Lockington considering a system would need to be at each end and chairs in between (even if, as i would expect the same chairs would be turned around when switching between the systems).

Any views from exhibitors and visitors last year on room layout and the practicalities of sharing a space?

Ive got most of the parts cut for the Linkwitz Orions and have built an amp for them. I should get the last bits cut later this week. I wouldn't need one of the huge rooms, the Hathern is plenty big enough.

Hang on a few days guys and we'll be sorting out this space for the Big Guns.

Thanks

I remember having a few bottles of 1984 18 yr old macallan  - was around £75 ...18 yrs ago and sells for the price of a Music First passive pre now - crazy 

Personally I don't get the MacAllan hype. Massively overpriced, and not that good.

I remember being given a glass of Royal Oporto from a freshly opened case of bottles from 1943, with a Swastika printed on them, by a guy who had worked for deBeers in SA for years and had then moved into industrial diamond cutting tools.... but sorry to say, I have none to bring on the Sunday when I visit all you brave, hard working guys! Really looking forward to it as always!

Not sure that we are any nearer determining how the large rooms will be split up and if those that have requested large rooms - myself included - are prepared to share.

I only visited the large rooms last year but I did not notice any troublesome noise bleed through from neighbouring rooms even though the partions are only temporary.  I think the exhibitors set their respective systems up to try and minimise this and presumably kept volume under control. 

My suggestion on room share would be two systems in each of Ashby and Kingston - the larger of the rooms with one system playing for the first half of the day and the other for the second half - I think this would be easiest for visitors to understand and plan for, rather than hour on hour off slots. Saturday could be more fluid and could even be quite fun switching between the two systems regularly as a kind of bake-off showdown.

Why I have suggested discussion on this is that a room share would mean that those exhibitors would be hauling a large amount of kit for just a 3 1/2 hour slot on the Sunday (plus playing time on Saturday) and that maybe insufficient to justify the logistics involved. Personally, I would be prepared to share but accept that others may feel different.

Throughout this thread I have acknowledged that the organisers decision on this is final and it looks like some will be disappointed as requests for these rooms are oversubscribed. If we can get a general consensus on room sharing both from organisers and potential exhibitors then perhaps this will aid in the final decision making process.

great post Richard, you are correct I can see 7 requests

I would reiterate for everyone else that there are no 'larger' bedrooms, the hotel has only 2 types of bedrooms;

  • standard rooms are 20 sq.m  - these are only allocated for sleeping / storage
  • superior rooms (most of the rooms) are about 25 sq.m. - these are allocated by the team for exhibitors, can be made up as twin if requested (NOW)

Looking at the exhibitor Spreadsheet I can see 9 possible requests for a 'large room' but I don't think it is clear on some of these whether the request is for a larger bedroom or one of the conference rooms.  Does this need to be clarified?

have flagged this to the allocations team, but people keep asking for 'large' rooms which simply don't exist at Kegworth
