Post by: mikeselectricstuff on September 13, 2018, 10:00:44 pm
Just noticed W├╝rth Elektronik are offering free Electronica tickets :

..though I can't see how you actually request them...

You can usually get free tix from most exhibitors - does anyone actually pay the ridiculous E27.50/day ?

Government & such folk who are highly restricted from accepting "gifts" perhaps?

There's a Hackaday happy hour Thurs from 4 at the Supplyframe stand, hall C4 or C5 I think.
When hungry, head to the Arrow stand-lots of good free food and beer flowing all day, and so busy you can easily fill up while avoiding sales droids.
For sweet stuff, best place is a magazine stand  (sourcing something?) With pick& mix In the far corner of the same hall that Supplyframe are in (from Supplyframe, head through avnet and turn right along back of hall)
I'm headed back home today-did all halls in 2 days. Need time to recover....

I went only one day, all day yesterday and my feet need time to recover.
It is unreal, how big the show is.
It was a nice trade show this year.

And if you show up with a business card and talk a little, you almost get free food and drinks everywhere, including at the Keysight stand.
