Tuesday we made our way to the conference centre which took a huge amount of time. After what must have been about 2 hours we got there and did our accreditation and met the rest of the PEI team, including a few of the GSC (Global Scientific Committee) members.
The first impression that one gets is the scale of this operation. 50,000 registered delegates all bustling about in a conference centre that comprises 5 buildings, each the size of the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena, one just for the food court. There there are the side pavilions too.
