ByAlan SmithOne answer to those people who say Congress is expensive is this breakdown for the CEPIC Congress in London 2012:

There are 40 half hour meetings possible during the allocated table times.

For a UK delegate paying 400€ congress fee that is 10€ a meeting.

For a UK delegate plus a table that is 800€, 20€ for a meeting.

For an overseas delegate paying on average 400€ for a hotel for 4 nights, 400€ for rail or air fare, 400€ for table and 400€ congress fee, all totalling 1600€, that is 40€ per meeting.

What a bargain compared to the cost of travelling around the world for 40€ one to one meetings.
