We won't be around this year I'm afraid. It was good to meet you last year.
So are there any blippers planning on going to the photography show at Birmingham in March?
If so, what days are people planning on being there. It would be good to see if some blippers could get together for a blipmeet.

We're planning to go at the weekend :)
I'll be there on the Monday
I shall be there on the Tuesday with Bedswizzard!
I'm going to be there on the Saturday - be good to meet up with as many blippers as possible!
I'll be there on the Monday
I will be there on Monday. Look forward to meeting you then.
It would appear that there are a number of people going on different days.
Perhaps it may be sensible to pick a particular place and time that each days Blippers could go to, to meet up.
I'll start by suggesting 1pm as a meeting time. What do people think of that? It could allow people to get some lunch and chat.
I am trying to find a map of the Hall, with its layout to find a suitable location too.
How does that sound as an idea?
Sounds reasonable to me, although if past blipmeets are anything to go by, finding a table for six or more people can be a challenge. It's a good start anyway, so lets run with it.
I'm going on 21st. Will at least meet up with PeterB. Others if there is a suggested meet point (could just be one of the stands at an agreed time).
Hi Graham here from Blipfuture. I intend to go on Sunday and it would be really great to meet up with some blippers while I am there. I like Matthew's suggestion of a meet at 1 pm and maybe meeting outside the hall would be better. If the weather is good it could be in the central area in the middle of Halls 1-5.
Hello Graham from the future! ;)
Do you think it could become a little disjointed by moving outside the halls to meet up?
I was wondering if it may be worthwhile seeing if meeting between the Food Galleries and the Adobe Theatre on the far right of the map you can see here https://www.flickr.com/photos/ardleybrewer/24635281143/in/dateposted-public/
Matthew's idea of meeting in the food area near the Adobe Theatre sounds like a good bet, I think that's where we've met before and should be easy for everyone to find :)
Last year we met by the restaurant. I think it's much better inside than out. I will probably go Sunday or Monday
So, if you haven't seen the latest Blip Central post (see here https://www.blipfoto.com/entry/2152431729242016881 ) at the very end of it is an important little announcement.
'As we said at the start of the post, we think one of the great things about Blipfoto is the blip meets that take place. We've also mentioned in past posts that we've been planning a special celebration to mark the fact the community owns Blipfoto now. To do this, we would like to encourage a week (and a bit) of special blip meets, between the 19th and the 28th March, where blippers arrange to get together in small or big groups and have some fun.'
It would be nice if we could settle on a time and location.
What is the considered opinion on 1pm down in the food galleries adjacent to the Adobe Theatre? (see my earlier post with link to map). If we can agree a common point and time, this can be circulated more widely.
I'm happy to fit in with the suggestion of between the restaurant and Adobe Theatre at 1 pm on Sunday. I'll be highlighting that soon as an opportunity to 'Meet a Blipfuture Director' as part of the special blip meets highlighted in today's post (https://www.blipfoto.com/entry/2152431729242016881).
So: Anyone going on Monday, meet 1pm between Food Halls and Adobe Theatre?
Definitely going on the Monday. I may make myself a Blip badge so I can be spotted anywhere.
I'll make one too!
Look forward to meeting at 1.00pm by the food hall.
If there are going to be any other blippers there on Saturday I will be between the food halls and adobe theatre at 1pm. Hope to see at least a few fellow blippers.
The meets on the various days of the show have now been added to the #bigblipmeet. I will be definitely be there on Sunday at the suggested location between the Adobe Theatre and Food Hall at 1 pm. It would be great to meet as many blippers as possible and enjoy a catch up with you all.
It is also possible that I will be there on Tuesday and if I can make it I will be in the same location at the same time. Many thanks to Matthew for setting the meet in motion.
I (Chris) will be there on Sunday. Not sure if Annie has decided yet or not!!
I'm going on the Monday 21st March, looking forward to it along with my shopping list.
I'm there on on Monday 21st March too - I'll make for the Adobe Theatre/Foodie space at 1:00.
I'm currently hoping to get there on the Monday, still working out the practicalities...
I will be there on Saturday and will hope to meet fellow blippers between the Food Galleries and the Adobe Theatre at 1pm.
Monday 21st blipmeet in Hall 5 of the NEC near Adobe Theatre/Foodhall area. So far we have sdg92, PeterB, MatthwHicks, frankbrett, HelenjG, catchapman, davidc, Riversider, BlackTulip, Igor, Anniemay.
Looking forward to meeting up.
I'll be there on Saturday - be good to meet any fellow Blippers.
How will we know who we are? Are we all going to wear "BLIP" badges...?!
