I asked show asters they said that you have to take pot luck and you will not be able to change later.

that's just silly...

 

Think of how many people are going and the logistics of swapping. What if there is no way to do it without impacting other people attending?

Is the NEC really big? I was looking at the actual pictures and it looks like it won't have people pushing past you to get to where they're going.

And it will also depend on how many people go

So is Excel. But rarely does anyone rent out the whole or even half the building.

more than sufficient, almost double the excel size. 

 

Have you seen the size of the whole of Excel? It is massive. But, it is rare for any event to rent out mroe than a few sections of it. In comparison to the NEC it holds it's own. It will all depend on how much has been rented out.

Both are massive with multiple areas to hold events. Usually an event hires parts of it. NEC has some 200000 square metres of event halls, whereas Excel is slightly less with event halls but has numerous hotels and large rooms attached. Both locations are great, but it will all depend on what has been rented and how many go,

Is there a list of previous DST guests and /or autograph prices anywhere ? I'm not a Star Trek fan but want to meet several guests for their other work. I'm just curious on the number and quality of guests to expect. I assume I can buy a plain admission ticket and pay per auto like most other SM events?

I don't know how it was arranged during DST 2 and 3, but during 1, on the website they offered some hotels for (in their eyes) cheaper prices. I don't see anything about that right now? Only how to get there.. Is that still in progress? Or don't they do this anymore?

As with all events that have gone before, Showmasters have announced them as soon as they are sorted out. So, if nothing has been announced then they have either not been finished or not obtained. Showmasters have said they never discuss what negotiations are in the mix.

No one but admins can delete other users' posts. Your original post is still there.

 

There have been no reduced rates arranged for these show, sorry.

I replied to you Annick but realised after that my response was irrelevant.  As users can't delete I tried to erase my bit and overtyped it with 'deleted' but unfortunately it removed your part of my reply as well and put the 'deleted' bit under your name and I couldn't get rid of it or change it in any way.  Apologies for any confusion.

The quote function is indeed a bit wonky at the moment, that may have been it. Are you working on a phone or a tablet, Raylenth?

Any idea please she autograph prices will be announced? Would be nice to try and start budgeting.

Is it too much to hope for Clancy Brown?
