With less than a week to go before this year's defence "biggie" the trickle of media advisories has become a veritable spate. We've decided we'll share some with you, make of them what you will! We're concentrating on the small players to begin with, not because we don't appreciate the hospitality invitations from the prime contractors, but because we like to champion those further down the food chain too!

Exhibiting next week will be:

Vitavox - http://www.vitavox-sound.com/
