As a club, our main aim in running Salute is to promote the hobby of wargaming in all its forms by providing a showcase for as wide a range as possible of the best displays available. To assist in this, you should ensure that your display, whether a participation game or a demonstration game, is designed to allow the public to easily see what is going on, and that you have people available throughout the day to answer any queries.
ExCel: is a purpose-built conference centre in East London which, as well as providing an easily accessible venue, also provides a wide range of other facilities. For details of the location including how to get there on the day, please see the ExCel web site at: http://www.excel-london.co.uk/excel, or call +44 (0)20 7069 4530.
