Welcome welcome one and all to London where the sun is shining and the buffet is, hmm, entirely fish. The event, at the Science Museum, was sponsored by The Norwegian Seafood Export Council. The rollmops were delicious and the company was fantastic – so exciting to see an international array of familiar faces all in one room.
Although the speeches were slightly extended the acoustic in the Making of the Modern World gallery is such that it’s hard to hear a great deal so many moved away from the mics and enjoyed catching up with old friends and making new ones.
There’s a buzz to the London based World Conference of Science Journalism already. The wine flowed, the seafood was eaten and all agreed we were looking forward to an exciting conference. What a great beginning!
