This review is more in relation to the venue rather than the show - but have to say it was our first time at a Gadget Show Live and we enjoyed it, the live show was very good and will be attending again (either Christmas Special or Gadget Show Live next year or maybe both). we spent all day there and did buy a couple of gadgets. Found that some areas were a lot quieter by late afternoon so enabled us to look at things more indepth than in the morning.
We got a taxi to the venue as we were staying in a hotel not far from the NEC and was dropped off right outside the front of the entrance - I knew the NEC would be big but it was absolutely huge (not that I saw all of it either) and in my opinion quite a nice looking building.
Walked through the doors, no queuing, just showed our ticket and went straight through - well managed for the amount of people.
Once in the venue there are plenty of clean toilets and numerous eating/drinking places. All very reasonably priced in my opinion - you do expect to pay slightly more anyway at places like this.
Overall I would attend further events at the NEC.
