Although this was my 6th Showmasters event having done Bournemouth 3 times and Cardiff twice I was a tiny bit apprehensive as I thought this was going to be huge and overwhelming. Personally I don't enjoy the Cardiff event much but Bournemouth is fantastic and has a great vibe and lovely venue and I'd place C24 between the two though certainly closer to the Bournemouth experience.
As many have commented there was plenty of space to get around and the staff particularly the chap manning Photo Area B were great.This was my first experience of the virtual queue system and to be honest I don't know how much it worked or not, it did seem to take a long time to get through the numbers but hey I got all the autos I was after.
My only real gripe was that Jeffrey Combs photo shoot was at the ungodly hour of 17:45, not great when all your ther business is taken care of by 15:45 and you have over a two hour drive home. In then end I had to sacrifice the shoot as my other half may have killed me. Still got a pic at his desk but it's a shame to have missed out.
Assuming the line up next year is as grand I will certainly be back for C25 in fact it's got me to thinking I may venture to LFCC but maybe on the Friday.
