    ....a really informative evening with such a lovely bunch of people. Well worth my late drive, back home to Bristol.
    *Still trying to work out the actual flavour of those cans of soft drinks...."bizarre yet refreshing" (comparative to a few of the ideas shared on Wednesday night)! Great job FashTech......

    I'm looking for PR contacts with clients in retail chains based in Central London or a major shopping centre. My client is offering a retail chain the opportunity to pilot trial their loyalty programme which uses the latest technology, in one of their stores from the above locations. This is a potential opportunity for extensive press coverage for being the first company to embrace this new form of loyalty technology. Contact me at [masked]

      I've just released my place, as I can't make it on Wednesday now, but depending on how the organisers set the waiting list up, that place will probably be automatically allocated to the next one the waiting list or manually allocated by them.
