We can only hope . . . 7 weeks today . . .

Schedules are usually put up about a week or so ahead of the show. I THINK that LFCC was 2 weeks ahead of showtime so maybe a similar wait time for this one I'd imagine.

LFCC was 1 week before.

I stand corrected.

If they want to sell talk tickets, they will need to give an indication of who is doing talks on which days.

Just checked the FAQ and it says "Talk tickets will be available to buy from early Summer, we will confirm closer to the time exactly when, please look out for notices via email and/or social media and this website!"

I keep coming on the forum for updates but a good chunk of the previous guest announcements haven't even been posted on here :whistling:

Same issue in the Sherlocked forum, I've emailed SM and sent a message on twitter to ask for them to be updated, but for some reason they just aren't adding the announcements on the forums. Oh well.

Welcome to Destination Star Trek Europe, the largest Official Star Trek Convention celebrating 50 years!

That's the lead line on the front page of the DSTE site. I read it that it does not say largest in Europe.but the largest.

I just took a screenshot of its description that it's the Largest official star trek convention celebrating 50 years.

They have their work cut out for them to ensure this event is larger than any other convention otherwise they are in breach of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 for misrepresenting the product/services they are selling.

You aren't supposed to mention other events by other companies by names James. It's part of the forum rules.

They haven't specified which aspect is the 'largest'. Number of guests? Floor space?

 

It is poor advertising but I'm not sure if it is false advertising

My apologies. Wasn't aware of that. I've updated my post to stay within the rules.

 

Just hope SM do the right thing also and fulfil their need to comply with the Consumer Rights Act.

If they only mean a certain aspect as being the largest then this should be clearly specified when describing the service they are selling. I'm sure they meant to say largest official star trek convention in Europe which this will most certainly be but that's not how it was described.

I actually said as much in an email to SM this week, expressing concern at guest numbers and lack of talk info to date. Had no response so far.

Did about the same by twitter. No answer yet.

 

That would be because the Twitter account is run by David and he can do exactly as much as us mods can, forward your concerns.

David doesn't run the DST twitter sadly, otherwise it might be used more, if only to keep momentum going and keep us all entertained :clap:
