Salute Setup Time-lapse

92 Comments

We got down to Salute yesterday and wanted to show off a bit of the hustle and bustle from the folks setting up. The hall is MASSIVE and the vendors are putting together some great looking booths and tables.

How many of you will be coming to Salute for the first time?

All good, didn’t like it banking side to side… or the two attempts at landing.

Just imagine you’re in a rollercoaster 😉
Besides …
any landing you can walk away from is a good one 😀

Better two attempts than one complete and utter failure.

Is this a bit like the British version of Adepticon?

Kinda of but much different. Think of the vendor area at Adepticon but 10 times bigger. Throw in full size demo tables in between in the aisles. That is Salute, no tournaments​ or big games. Mostly sales. It is an amazing experience and we really enjoy it. We are really sad we are not this year. It is worth the trip from the States. The Backstage meet up is always a great time. I highly recommend it to anyone.
