Quiet corridors

It all seems a bit quiet wandering through the corrid


It all seems a bit quiet in ExCeL today. The silence only punctured by the yawns of exhibitors in some of the more distant corridors. But it is Monday, and there’s a lot of boat show still to come. And, if the figures are to be believed, attendance is tracking ahead of last year. But I still can’t shake the feeling that there should be more people here. Everyone seems happy enough though, with the vast majority of people talked to saying they’ve had a good day. The new features too seem to be going well, with one breathless couple telling me the Engine Race was just the thing needed to break up an otherwise very long walk round the two halls of this vast exhibition centre.
