    Dear All,

    Many thanks to all who have registered it looks like 37 in total confirmed, with a few people who have date issues to confirm :

    You need do nothing else, everyone who has written to me up to todays date gets a place :

    Its probable that we may have one or two drop outs, so if anyone who has NOT booked wants a place I will take 5 further names as reserves, they will be allocated on a first come first served basis, but are not guaranteed obviously.

    If you have registered and are UNABLE to attend, PLEASE pm me and let me know so as I can give your place to one of the reserves :

    The proposed agenda is as follows :

    10.00 Assemble on the ILFORD site : See website for address / location etc
    Coffee :
    10.15 Welcome & Introduction : Dr.Phil Harris Chairman & Managing Director
    Safety Briefing ( Compulsory )

    10.30 The Factory Manufacturing Flow : Peter Elton : Operations Director

    11.00 Factory tour part one : Pilot Coating / Emulsion Making / Coating : M14 main coating machine.
    ( 2 hours 15 minutes )

    1.15pm Lunch ( Will be provided by ILFORD photo* )

    2.30 The way ahead, a presentation on R&D at ILFORD Photo

    2.50. The way ahead, a presentation by marketing

    3.00 Factory tour : Film finishing / paper finishing / quality control / warehouse : ( 1 hour 30 minutes )

    Dear Mark,

    I think not, its about timing and we are geared to ship large volumes not smaller amounts..but you will not go away empty handed........
