Sketch Conduit Street with Canon

Canon held a press event at Sketch, Conduit Street, London W1. The invite was a large perspex thing!

They had celeb guests including Mica Paris and Chris Eubank

We then stayed over in a hotel and presentations and demonstrations ran on Thursday 21st from 10am to 3pm

The launch was for the Canon digital SLR and the Powershot A80. We had to get up at 7am and go by boat down the Thames. I had a hangover!

Canon Going Dutch

Canon press launch in Amsterdam.

I appear to have lost the agenda for day one which doesn’t surprise me as I lost my mind on that afternoon thanks to Eileen Martin and Patrick Mullan who I joined on a coffee trip (if you know what I mean) at one of Amsterdam’s typical bars. Some cake and a few spliffs later and I got stuck at 4pm…for a very, very long time. Had to skip the evening entertainment and let the boys from Dallas on TV talk to me.

Also experienced a selection of flavoured Genever’s at a Gin bar before the cake.
