For the second year in a row we took part in the Listed Property Show. Having done the inaugural Harrogate show last year, we opted for the London version this time.
I love doing shows, well at least the bit where I can talk to customers and other interested people. The period before that is actually very stressful. This is the bit visitors do not see, but setting up the stand is always hectic and frenetic as no matter how well you plan, you always encounter problems. From site contractors not having lighting and electrics in place to dimension of the stand being different from originally indicated and therefore hand-made items not quite fitting as planned. Therefore, the stand never quite works out the way it was envisioned. No matter: the visitors seem to love it and we've had great reactions since.
The opportunity for people to speak to the actual inventor of Speedheater products was quite special and asking the world-leading expert on linseed paint Gunnar Ottosson questions directly wonderful.
Here is a short impression.
