Well that might be a good thing, they have 16 speakers booked so it will pretty much 1 - 1!!
Yes have been to quite a few industry things when in London, design, photography etc.
I worked for WIRED magazine for around 6 years, they have many events but a really big one annually called WIRED LIVE, not specifically in this area but we would have vendors and presenters who worked in VFX, 3D printing etc. I first met with and tried both Makerbot and formlabs printers there too as well as pre release VR sets and other fun things. Because of my job I got to go to lot’s of other events around town too for free because I had a press pass.
Superman issue 1 (about £6m for each one)
First room scale VR, about 30 by 30 feet, there was a laptop in the backpack
Seeing Asimo for the first time running around! It was the first demo of the new unit (running and climbing stairs) outside of Japan.
Alas I haven’t been to anything like that now for 18 months, my next event will be Basecamp in September that should be really fun, I have never been to that part of America.
