The IDC Bear is an adventurous soul who will be out and about before the conference finding out interesting things about the places he visits and the people he meets. His escapades can be followed on Twitter @theidcbear.
The IDC Bear was born in October 2015, he emerged from a 3 hour labour ready to be filled up and then he simply needed to have a smile put on his face before he was ready to face the world.
PHOTOS COMING SOON!!!
His first public appearance was at the BBC where he tried out the listening room
and posed with Rhia and Matt
and then had to go out in the rain where he got cold and wet trying to feature in his first movie, with rather mixed results. You can see him in this video with Phil and Janet.
