I think you mean "Carden" :)

I'd be interested to know what the reasoning was behind this. I ran
the last Education Expo stand for LA (in Sydney) and I thought it was
very successful.

Please refer to my report at

Note that the Melbourne show is not the same as the Education Expo in
Sydney and Adelaide.

I was also an observer for LA at the Open Edge conference run by Donna
Benjamin last year, and I was thoroughly impressed*.

We are making inroads in education, and I think this is a sector where
we should be pushing hard.

* disclaimer: I was involved in approving LA sponsorship for this.

Bring choice back to your computer.
