How expensive is that ? I suppose it something to be discussed at a face
to face at somestage. I'd say it would be hard to organise something
professional, even on a small scale, seeing as I can't imagine that many
people willing to pay a thousand or so for a stand, like they do for things
like Windows World...
Suppose, book some place around town, get an agency to do the advertising,
are you talking about £10000 to get started (maybe recoup some of it,
through small stand fees, and sponsorship).
