    That's why we (as AoS) stopped exhibiting. It's fun for a bit, but if you've got a room (and kit) to look after, you certainly don't get the chance to go round and enjoy the rest of the show properly.

    The only way that happens, to some extent, is if you stay over at the venue the night before and manage to listen to the other systems there being set up, in advance of the public coming in the following day.

    It's the only way I'd entertain doing it again, as the banter with everyone is good on the Saturday night (plus you get to park your car in a decent place next to the hotel), and as an exhibitor, it's really too much of a rush (and stressful) any other way.

    Anyway, it's good to hear that those who went (and also exhibited) had a good time!
