Overall I had a great time, got every auto and photo I wanted apart from I wasn't able to find Adam for a cheeky selfie. But a little constructive feedback for next year;
It seemed to me that priority passes were over sold for Commanders, on Saturday there were so many that normal auto VQ holders only had a chance if they got ticket 1-60 or so. I heard so many people complaining about not getting to the front of queues, but that's what happens when everybody is a priority! Normal basic entry people had a much better chance of getting what they wanted on Friday. I understand Showmasters wanting to milk thee events for all they can but seriously, you just frustrate both your high and low price ticket purchasers and this damages your brand need to make these events a great experience if they are to be sustainable and I heard a lot of people saying "never again"
Secondly the photo shoot queues overall were understaffed and poorly managed. In previous events I have seen tall poles with signs on top with the celeb names so people knew who the queue was for, and then lines for each batch number. That worked so well, but over the past couple of days it seemed that nobody knew what each queue was for and I saw loads of people queue for ages only to be told they are in the wrong place. Most of us only found out what was happening from each other. So next time please go back to the old way of managing things, put clear signs up where queues for so we all know what each queue is for an go back to giving people areas to wait in for their batch number. The staff were mostly lovely, a couple were grumpy but they were trying to help, they were just swamped.
If these things can be ironed out as they have been previously at other big Showmasters events then next DSTE could be a brilliant event.
