There's a list of sponsors on that page.

Looking at the list of distilleries that are attending it looks to be a good event.
One interesting bit of news was that they expect Ardbeg to be there with the new 10 year old, Renaissance which was a bit of a surprise as I hadn't expected to see this before Feis Ile 2008 but here's hoping
They also mentioned that Martin Green of McTears would be there doing a book signing (don't all rush at once )
Who else has tickets?
We'll need to find a way of meeting up.
I was about to say 'badges', but I controlled myself...
I keep looking at the line-up and what you get for the ticket price and it's an absolute bargain!
A few of the Glasgow's Whisky Club folk will be meeting up at Central Station to arrive there en masse. Anyone else want to meet at the station too?
So, meet in Central around 11:30?
Photos and report to follow...
See, that's exactly what I said to the woman on the Glengoyne stand (never did get one of those wee water jugs) - I've no idea how you remember all that!
I didn't have as many as that (I think) but two that I've written down that aren't there are the Glenfarclas new make, and the Auchentoshan 3-Wood (I actually managed to note down 15).
I think you've pretty much summed it all up there. A great number of stands and just a really well put together event that everyone (who can) should go to.
