        Just emailed the boss aiming for a free trip down, if not I will pay for my own.

        But a free trip is always better.

          I will try to get down there. Is one day enough? Imagine there is a combination of vendor stalls and events. If so, any events that are a must see?

            You can get round the expo in a day with time to stop here and there and talk to people. It will however depend very much on where your interests lie and how much time you spend stopping and looking and talking.

              Thanks... I tend to talk a lot, so may have to budget for both days.

                I am pretty pumped for it. I most likely will come home with a new machine.

                          Hi Folks,

                          I'm flying in at 11.30am on Saturday 17th and out at 4.30pm on Sunday.
                          I have not arranged a transfer yet and need to keep a lid on spending
                          Is anyone else making their way to/from the airport and MICE at this time?

                            Hi Ben,

                            Just in case you can't hook-up with someone else.

                            SkyBus - City. Airport. Express.

                            or the more complicated public route;

                            Bus Services - To and From the Airport - Melbourne Airport

                              Thanks Chokkidog.
                              Looking at the bus services I was wondering whether it was poor comprehension on my part.

                              The skybus was excellent last time I visited the CBD, wasn't so sure about its access to the showgrounds though.
