Advantages: See the technology of today first hand - along with many special offers on products purchased at the event.
Disadvantages: Less representation from some of the larger exhibitors. Certain large companies that I expected to be there were not.
Live 2000 is a massive exhibition of the technology we all wish we had. From digital cameras, to laptop computers, to hi-fi systems, it's all there... and those are just on the Sony stand just inside the door!
The online pavilion was my main point of interest, being a bit of a net-head. It was there I signed up to dooyoo, in fact: you can meet the friendly dooyoo staff there and say hi! Dotmusic, AOL and Freeserve were the main presences in the Online Pavilion, with several smaller companies making an appearance. AOL's stand takes the form of a 'house' which has sections for different members of the family, and while not being much of an AOL-fan, I did enjoy the free biscuits.
Stuff, What Hi-fi? and TheNet magazine were present, in appropriate sections. Other companies of note include BTCellnet, Gameplay (complete with live games tournaments) and the company that sells the wonderful invention of CD hangers, just in case you feel the need to hang your CDs in your wardrobe, or something...
If you are into technology and gadgets, check out Live 2000. As I write this there is only one day left, but on the off chance that anyone reads this before then... I recommend it.
