I spent this morning at Earls Court enjoying the annual event that is Ecobuild. Call it an Exposition or a Convention - the outcome is the same. A large (extremely large) exhibition hall filled with stands populated with manufacturers and suppliers (mostly) along with a few industry bodies, publishers etc.

With hundreds and hundreds of stands it is a tiring morning... especially with my sense of direction. I had thought to be heading in a straight line through the hall - until I ended up back by a very distinctive stand and I realised that I was, in fact, going in circles.

It's a fantastic way to find out about the latest renewable technologies - although for an eco-friendly event I certainly collected a lot of paper, but no plastic bags - one cotton and one hemp. Easy way to become popular at such an event, give away free bags!
