This is a very impressive list when seen compacted  like this…..

I wonder if a version should appear on the website (the layout information isn't necessary - just the list of makers coming) and Facebook?

Thanks Alan.

Apologies all for the lack of clarity on layout, we've all been so busy that we've not had chance put a readable layout plan for all to see together, it's been in various CAD formats, photocopies and post-it notes!  Still not pretty or perfect but should give everybody located in the 1830's a good idea.

Andrew - many thanks for the information - I wasn't particularly asking just for myself - I'm happy to fit in wherever there's a wall to back on to! And judging from the proportions on your cad diagram, the orange spaces are 2m deep and 3m deep - so plenty of breathing space for all of us!
I wonder if the other exhibitors might now ask where they are? If that's the case, apologies for tne extra work in providing a list!
Unless anyone else wants to visit before Friday, I'll be fine to sort out then, though I might just try and make it for around lunchtime.

Our CAD diagram (attached) looks a bit ropey at the moment, not really legible except to those of us who have arranged it! You are number 39. Each orange square is approx 2x3m. wont be quite so squished on the day. The stair case and lifts your near are the ones visitors will come up. 

Let us know if you'd like to visit the space before Friday, should be able to arrange someone from MOSI to take you up there.

Just wondering what news there is about the layout for this weekend?
Seen the pictures - looks an amazing exhibition area! Did wonder about trying to come and have a closer look as ideally I need a level floor space, but hey-ho - I'll bring some extra supports, (got my own table) some mats to put under the legs on my display table and my usual ball of string and reels of low tack masking tape! And hoping to set up on Friday after lunch.

Hi Guys

We're just finalising layout, we're let you know as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience!
