It's 20 quid for non-members
Is it just me or does this seem a bit OTT in terms of pricing? If they
fill the room (which they estimate will be about 220 to 250 people) this
means the amount of money they take in could be anywhere between £2000 and
£5000. Surely even the Conrad can't be charging that much.
I could go on a really rant here about the whole thing (the pricing and
indeed the campaign itself seems to be mostly coming from comparatively
well paid professional people) but that would be more appropriate to the
IIU than here anyway.
