Possibly useful information for attendees of UKOUG TEBS 2012. (And Oracle Beer!)

Venue Plans.

When I first attended UKOUG, I did struggle to find my way to some of the halls, especially with regard the fact that some routes have been closed off.

So if this is the first time you are attending you might want to look at the new floor plans on the ICC website located here:

and

Parking.

If you are going to park on the street at any time during the conference, note that new zones are now in operation since last year.

The map of the new zones is here:

But in short, some of the roads closest to the ICC now require a ticket on all days (including Sundays) between the hours of 8am to 7:30pm.

Beer.

While All Bar One and Pitcher and piano in Brindley place (http://www.brindleyplace.com/leisure/bars/) provide convenient locations for acquiring beer may I suggest that the more adventurous try:

or

Which actually serves:

 

Baas? Beer as a service?
