Someone should start making a show at the end of October, it`s a less busy period of time for the industry and still before Christmas. :)

This is gonna be great. At least I hope it will be. It will be a very busy day we booked and I hope we can find some new personal contacts and of course the newest gaming experience!

@Werner don't forget the managers conference! They always book around october or september every year (and of course the publishers are there, too).
