While the talk has been of more business and less freeloading, there were still one or two lively sounding parties in tents at night on the Croisette and the bars at the Martinez end of the Croisette where the drinking action was taking place.
The lack of big announcements was also noticeable. Some of the UK's RDAs put their hands up and freely admitted they had nothing to promote, while others scrabbled around for what were obviously spurious announcements. One briefing was an announcement about... an announcement.
Notable faces that have caused a stir have been Boris (of course) who made his presence felt in the way only he can, Kevin McLoud of Grand Designs fame - who is very passionate about sustainability apparently - and Linda Barker, if you happened to go to the Bradford apartment.
The presence of Sir Bob Kerslake also caused a bit of a stir among those in the public sector.
And so it is time for a final bit of networking and then the clearing up after what has been a much more sober MIPIM.
