    I'm going to be exhibiting (under the "Memorable Domains" banner) at the Internet World show in Earls Court at the end of this month. The show runs from April 29th to May 1st, and it is apparently the largest web-related show in the UK. More info on the show itself at http://www.internetworld.co.uk/

    I'll have stand E277 (just opposite Sedo so you can kill two birds with one stone) so please drop by and have a chat if you happen to be in the area.

    I have 1,500 brochures prepared that make a strong case for generic domain names in general (as well as promoting my own names of course) so hopefully if I can get those into enough "general public" attendees' hands, it will make at least a small difference to their perception of the value of such domains. Best would be to get the media on board so I'll try and snag any passing journalists :)

    Anyway, the show's a lot of fun (I went last year) so why not pencil it into your diary?

    I'll pop a PDF copy of the brochure on my site once the show is over. Don't want to spoil the fun ahead of time!

    Yep I went last year too. I think they teamed the expo up with a direct mail/postal/stationery show - I spent a lot of time in the other half to be honest, but there was some ok stuff in the internet half.

    Good luck Edwin - If I'm in London I'll stop by

    Yes, they're holding the show in tandem with the International Direct Marketing Fair ( http://www.idmf.co.uk/ ) again. Each of the shows occupies half of the event hall. They've flipped sides from last year though i.e. the two shows will each be occupying the space that the other did previously.

    Thanks. Yes, I did. And my friend who's going to pop over and help man the stand at Internet World helped proof/rewrite it - he's got a great eye for catchy copy.

    Yes and no. BIN prices (I've already fixed them) will certainly be available to people enquiring about specific names, but I'm not going to be handing around a general list with all the prices on it.

    There will be alphabetic lists and lists by industry category for potential buyers to consult - but the prices will be given on a one-to-one basis for a particular domain name. It's up to buyers to enquire about a domain name that interests them, and we can dialogue from there.

    There's a bit more to their business than that, I think :)

    In fact, if it's anything like last year, that side of the exhibition could be quite interesting. They had a huge printing press machine thingy that could spit out fully wrapped, printed-on-demand magazines at an impressive rate. And some other big gadgets, if you like that sort of thing...
