epic21 Day 1 Roundup

So I'm covering for our Content Manager at epic21 who was unable to make it, so here's how day 1 went but this time from a behind-the-scenes perspective. 

We started the morning on the back foot after a very long setup day on Wednesday for the team, the heat, combined with having to bring 170 tables up to the 1st floor, left a very tired staff team by Thursday morning. We also had a number of power issues following on from the installation of a new power system in to the venue that took all morning to resolve, obviously lack of power then has a knock on effect to the rest of the setup plans. There was a bit of fun to discover one of our main uplinks running through the building had been used for something else since our last event, but we quickly worked out what had happened and moved on.
