I must agree on all what Eelbrook said.
I was at the event for the 4 th time ,from day one.
I'll try and make it to the 5th and even the 1st scottish one.
I must say the event developed very well and it's great to see so many industry people there.
I again persuade some friends to fly in on Saturday not to miss the event and yhey had a great time,They were slightly dissapointed to get there Goodie bags as Eelbrook.
Even i was, the past few years where very good and was a great extra for a lot of people to make this even t truely a great event.
Now i got my goodie bag on Friday, and was a little surrprissed to find a bottle of beer and only a Dewars minature.
The next day it was 'packed' with 2 minatures and a bottle of beer and water, strange.
We even had to ask for the whiskymag copy as it wasn't standerd in there.
Now i'll get my subscription copy probably in about three weeks anyway but for the non-subscribers it missed it's goal.
Maybe you shpuld talk to the exhibitors because there were lots of promo's availible at the stands, so some did get a lot and some (novice) didn't get anything.
I'm not there to get stuff fot myself but i always try to get more people to the event and into whisky drinking/enjoying so it would be nice if those people got what it's all about.
The faces i come across every year will take care of their own ,i guess allthough i'm not surethat helps the event aswell.
Good luck with the next event and the improving of getting the magizine ontime at the faithful subscribers
The event and magizine looks like their slipping the outstanding quality because of the succes
