I know it was a compliment ;)

I think the site works well. The layout is simple and the navigation is fairly straight forward. I can't see the average Joe having too many problems using the site. By saying "it was the best green site i had seen" I was paying you a compliment. I have designed many sites and i am unsure I could do any better :) (there is also the fact that I am not a fan of green websites) Overall I great job, very impressive and I think it does the job quite well, well done!!

Hmmm...good idea - I don't like the secondary navigation either, but couldn't think of anything better at the time. There is an overlap between 'who's exhibiting' and 'exhibiting' and I can't think of better labels. The first is to let people know who will be there, and the second is for all of the information someone needs to know if they want to exhibit. Maybe I'll change the 'Exhibiting' label back to 'For exhibitors' if it fits

Yep, it's good. Simple, gets the job done. The front page is particularly good, as it gives everything you would want to know in a hurry (where, when, what, etc). If only some of the sites I've been looking at over the last week gave me this ... sigh. The buttons down the side are obvious and self-explanatory. The only comment I would make is regarding the navigation within the sections. This wasn't obvious to me at all, for a couple of reasons: * It is separated from the navigation on the sidebar, and there isn't an obvious association between them. * They are not obviously navigation links, particularly without the underlining. * There is an overlap between the "Who's exhibiting" sublink, and the main "Exhibiting" category, which probably needs to be resolved. I would perhaps move these links to underneath the category they are in the sidebar, as a sort of expanding/collapsing metaphor (but without the silly DHTML widgets). Hope this helps, James
