WHD local London invite to LONAP members and prospects

LONAP members and prospective members are invited to a LONAP lunch at WHD local London in the Strand on Friday 10th October.

This is a rescheduling of one I wrote earlier. Following on from LONAP director Will Hargrave’s  talk at last year’s WHD local London I am heading there myself (fwiw) on Friday October 10th to do a talk entitled “Under the hood of the internet – how peering helps with your end user experience”. I’m on at 11.35.

Tickets for the show are free and there is what could be quite an interesting line up (see below – some are salesey but there is enough interest there I think).

This is a bit of free publicity for LONAP but if we can get some members there I’m proposing to have a LONAP lunch (after all I’ll have finished my talk !:) and invite one or two of the speakers talking about cloud services to join us for a round table discussion. If you don’t want to come for the whole day one option is to just come for the morning and leave after the lunch. It is on a Friday after all.

I think this could be a worthwhile use of time. If anyone fancies coming along use this sign up link (code is MLOLMKLX).

Also let me know if you are coming as I will make arrangements to book a table for lunch – it’s at the Melia Hotel on the Strand (Conde Nast Traveller Hotlist) so there should be something appropriately nice on offer.
