Just one quick point on the issue of hotels.

Try to get a hotel that isn't too close to the centre of London. Hotels in the centre will be very expensive. Finding one even just a few miles out will reduce the price significantly and London's transport system (for all of the complaints us natives make) is actually very, very good. The Underground is superb and the busses are regular. As a result, it's simple getting from one part of London to another. The only caveat is that the Olympia (where the LDS is held) is on a branch line and more problematic - the trains are less regular.

I know that in the past, exhibitors stay at the Hilton which is around the corner from the Olympia so that is also a very real option.
