  1. Hi Guy’s

    Is there going to be a list of who’s going? I would like to know if there is anyone else I can catch up with 🙂

  2. We don’t publicly publish a list of delegates in advance because
    (a) the booking form (unlike that for the conference) doesn’t seek permission to do this
    (b) it would be overly time consuming to keep such a list up to date.

    We do however put up a list of all delegates on the seminar admin board at the seminar itself.

    See you a week on Saturday!


    • Ok no worries, I just thought I’d seen one in the past, lol

      See you next week 🙂
