One particularly irksome aspect of the Munich event was the fastidious (you thought we were going to use another word that starts with ‘f’, didn’t you) nature of the German security guards at the Munich Trade Fair Centre. They had the most unreasonable habit of getting uptight after asking participants to vacate the building, despite the rather boisterous and salubrious ‘networking’ that was going on here, there and everywhere. Just because the show ended at 6PM each night was no reason to get so grumpy because clusters of ‘networkers’ were still quaffing their beers and scotch at…ummm…8:30ish. Sheesh. While the Sicherheitsbeamtes (Google told us that’s the translation for security guard – we like it, it sounds more serious!) clearly exhibited little in the way of a sense of humour (no, no, NO! We’re not going to be drawn into this one!), one well-known industry veteran decided he might walk a mile in another man’s beret, as it were! And hats off to the Sicherheitsbeamte for (unsmilingly) obliging! Herr Kidd dodged the bullet on that one we reckon!
