Striving to cover the London 2012 Games as best I could, I was buzzing through Westfield Stratford City a lot. The place was jammed packed with folk from all over the world – which made for amazing atmosphere but also presented a bit of challenge for simply finding a place to sit down, take advantage of the free WiFi and plot my next moves. Thankfully, the Westfield Media Suite granted even a humble blogger like me free access to their cosy press room. The people running the media suite show were helpful and accommodating. The room was comfortable and accessible with plenty of chairs and work stations.One hectic day in particular, the suite served as a perfect base for me – saving me tons of time and allowing to get more work done than I might otherwise been able to. This post is just to say thanks to the media suite peeps and to whomever came up with the idea to have a dedicated free space at Westfield for media in the first place. Yes indeed, #iwasthere and the Westfield Media Suite greatly facilitated my able to enjoy the Olympics and blog about my 2012 experience. Of course the Westfield summer fun ain’t over yet. The Olympics may be gone and the Paralympics yet to commence, but Westfield’s #iwasthere competition rolls on prizes to be won just for participating in its #iwasthere competition. All you’ve got to do is show which side of London you think is best: east or west?
