Tom has confirmed that we can run the Map Room again next year. (waiting for confirmation of the dates & full details)

Overall I feel our input into the show was a success and something we would like to expand on for next year.

This year’s show we hosted 6 discussion panels, and had the community fire etc.

For next year it would be great to hear your ideas on how to make it better, we are currently considering the following:
• Adding more discussion panels (maybe even start them on Friday if we are allowed)
• Have more pictures and information from members about their trips in the Map room, photos, map of their journey (it gives people something to look at and discuss when talks are not on)
• Have a trade stall on the main strip so that we can engage more people throughout the day
• Improve on the equipment we had at the show i.e Projector, Screen etc.
• Maybe hold more personal small group sessions (we found the discussions were great and people still had lots more questions)
• Some demonstrations of overlanding equipment and coms etc.

It would be great for those who would like to be involved to sign up early and volunteer.

We are looking for people to help with the following:
• Join discussion groups as a Panel Member
• Provide a talk, show photos or videos or your trip
• Generally help out on our stall, in the map room or camping area.

We are hoping that for next year we will have a camping area on the main strip so that the community gets more footfall.

If you are interested in helping out in any way or joining our community camp area, please show your interest.

Thank you
