London Eye spin
On the evening preceding the event we would love you to join us on a spin in a private London Eye capsule. Join us in the Eye Lounge for a refreshment at 17h45 before we board the private capsule at 18h00.  After the spin we will be returning to the Strand Palace Hotel for drinks at 19h00 and dinner at 20h00.


Meeting sessions with BME on 16 November
User days can be very busy and there never seems to be enough time to have a proper chat with individual university staff.  David Chisholm and Steve Sapseid will be available for sit down individual face to face meetings on the day preceding the user day, 16 November.  If you would like to have a chat and review progress of the Qlik implementation at your university, or discuss anything else, you can book a time on the registration form.
