Blog: Olly WehringLIWSF - Start your engines

I presume that, like me, you have received your visitor badge for next week’s London International Wine & Spirit Fair.

Here, then, follows a list of what else to bring: passport, toothbrush, business cards. You may want to bring a suit as well (don’t want to look underdressed). And maybe some Red Bull, because it’s going to be a long three days.

And we here at just-drinks are raring to go. Not only will we be out in force at the event, we’ll also be filing stories as and when we get them around ExCel – Live from the Fair, if you will.

The good news for you all is that ExCel has wireless Internet access. The bad news is that it’s not that cheap. The better news, then, is that just-drinks is offering all visitors to the fair free Internet access, at its Executive Internet Centre at stand G10. Check your emails, surf the Web or check the latest sports news – for free.

After the popularity of the service last year, we’ve increased the number of stations at the show. With six free Internet stations and a research desk managed by the just-drinks team, the stand is guaranteed to be a useful resource for anyone at the show.

So, we wish you a relaxing weekend, and look forward to welcoming you to London next week. Here’s to a successful few days.

Check out the LIWSF Website for full details of who will be attending, and click here for a floorplan for this year's event. Remember, we're at stand G10, by entrance S3.
