Regarding to this,
"I would also like to say that i enjoyed the aftershow party but found that the 4 people from the EGL were vile and rude and that may put me off next year i will add this was a isolated incident."
i dont think it was a isolated incident as they seemed rude to everyone and everyone on the sunday , the large cockney geezer with the side burns thought it was funny to tell me to F*ck off when i asked how it was going, now where i come from thats fighting talk and he was quite aggressive in the way he said it , apart from that they seemed not interested on the whole of the sunday.
Not friendly tbh and dosent make it acceptable if im wearing a replay t shirt.
Regarding this matter I assure you I will be personally investigating this incident. We have worked with the EGL guys several times in the past on last year’s Expo, and other events we have put on this year and I have always found them professional and approachable so this is a great surprise to me; I am sure Dave and Gordon will be of the same opinion.
I do know they use volunteer helpers in the same way we use many of you guys for our events, so this may well be one or two of their volunteer staff rather than the regular guys, but whatever the reason I am very concerned over these claims and will follow it up with the EGL management.
Can I offer my apologies on behalf of Replay Events to anyone who was insulted by exhibitors at the show, and I hope you will see this for what it is – an isolated incident that was beyond our control.
On a side note, can I thank everyone who helped at this year’s show, especially those who came to set up and those who stayed to help to dismantle everything yesterday. It took three full days to set up everything, but we were had to be out by 5PM yesterday so it was a bit of a mad scramble getting everything done but we managed it.
An event of this size takes an enormous amount of planning, organisation and support. It wouldn’t be possible without the people willing to offer their time and assistance, so all the volunteers should be immensely proud of what was achieved this year.
I would personally like to thank MatC, MattB, Vinny, Simon Mohicankid, HelenS and SimonB for their continued support. Also, thanks to Guy and the AV crew who worked tirelessly throughout the event. This list is by no means exhaustive, just people that immediately spring to mind.
We got an excellent response to the exit polls and we will be going through all the suggestions and will act on them where we can. Thanks to anyone who took time to fill one in – remember to follow the Replay Events Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ReplayEvents
) to find out who won the tickets for the GEEK event in Margate next February, and for information on other events we are involved in next year, such as the Games Britannia show in July.
Finally, thanks to everyone who congratulated me on the birth of my baby daughter. She’s beautiful and fantastic as the show was, it was very hard being away from her.
