I have just received an email from Linda of Ideas 21 reminding me that the "betfair.com British Invention Show" will take place at the Alexandra Palace between 20 and 23 October 2005. Not only that, but Linda is offering to host Ideas21 members' exhibits on the Ideas 21 stand.
Ideas21 appear recently to have increased their sub to £35 + a £5 joining fee, but for that you get access to the private bits of the Ideas21 website, a book by James Dyson, the bloke who invented the cyclone vacuum cleaner, and a load of pencils as well as £5 discount on admission to Second Tuesday talks in Manchester. I have been told that Ideas21 also let members of some other inventors' clubs into their events for no extra cost but you will have to ask Linda about that because I have never been able to understand the rules. Her telephone number is 020 8780 9017 and the best time to catch her tends to be the morning.
If you are already a member of Ideas21 and you want to take Linda up on her offer you should email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
