I usually only go to Bett for a day, and therefore I need to think very carefully what to carry with me. Although many are already there today, for those who are visiting later in the week here's my essential list of things to carry.
Bag. Enough pockets for things, and a large pocket for all the leaflets and info I'll be picking up.
iPad mini. Note taking, tweeting. I also have a rough plan of my day in evernote.
iPhone 4s. Taking pictures of things, may even try tweet a vine video this year.
MiFi (topped up with 1GB of data) & three spare charged batteries. Connectivity in the event of poor wifi.
iPad charger. Something always needs charging on the train home.
Charging cables for iPad, iPhone and Mifi.
Google notepad. A nice freebee from BETT2012.
A mini sharpie and a ball point pen.
@IrritableTech mini cards. Hopefully I'll make some new connections.
Stickers with my school details on. Save filling out endless forms.
Train tickets, Oyster card & BETT pass.
Water. Possibly pick up a sandwich before you get there too?
Comfy shoes (everyone gives this tip right?).
Coat or no coat? Never quite sure. It's cold on the platform at 6:30am, but hot inside BETT. So you either decide to carry it about (the cloak room queues are often very long) or freeze while you wait for public transport.
If you do see me wondering around tomorrow (Thursday), do say hello. Or tweet me.
