Thanks everyone, a pleasure to meet you all! Hopefully I'll make it to another one!

And Skye1 - I owe you a pint, so I'd better get to one more at least!

Absolute pleasure to meet as many of you as I could. Really wish I could have met more but perhaps PHX, GOT, ARN, MIA..? Or even LHR?! Safe travels. David.

It was an excellent evening - so good to add faces to familiar FT names!

Thank you to everyone who came. Great to see both familiar and new faces last night. Also many thanks to @teledude for his generosity with the food and shots.

I am now on a very early HEX to T5, today may be a struggle

Great to meet a few familiar faces, and put a few more to their respective names! Thanks to @KARFA and @teledude for organising!

Great to see some old friends, and meet a few new people too (hello again @WickedStepMother - we sat a couple of seats apart on a Finnair flight last month, but didn't speak until last night!). Thanks to @KARFA and @teledude for organising and their generosity - I must say that Lindt provide a far better quality of chocolate than Ferrero do ;-) and it was easier to resist teledude's insistance that you have a shot when he isn't there :-)! Can I vote that we move downstairs again next year if it's possible?
