It's been the same at the other shows, just not for all packages. You are not able to change your group. It would be an organisatorial nightmare if this was allowed. Schedules are based on the different groups being in different places at the same time.

Something I've been wondering about:

 

This year you receive your tickets by mail and you show them/this at the venue. So I expect not the same (kind of) tickets as during the first DST? What is the "registration time" one hour before opening then for?

You buy tickets on line they send an email with your ticket / barcode which you print off and take to the ticket office on the day they then exchange for tickets no tickets are sent through post as far as I can see.

You will not receive your tickets by mail if you have bought a package.

 

"On purchase of your ticket you will receive an email that will contain your ticket in PDF format. This will need to be printed or displayed on a mobile device at the event, you will then receive your event pass that will grant you access to the event for the days you have purchased for."

 

The standard or weekend ticket pages indeed do not specifically mention a pass pick up. But for those I am pretty sure at least wristbands will be handed out.

According to the website registration opens at 12midday on Friday, 8am Saturday & Sunday.

Hope the crew will be efficient with the passes, otherwise there will be very big queues.

But this is only for the packages higher as the normal 1 day, sat/sun day and the weekend passes?

 

As I said above, I am pretty sure the non package tickets will be receiving wristbands. That's how it's happening at LFACC too and the process is pretty smooth.

 

I have asked for confirmation, but it is highly unlikely I hear back before Monday.

I ask this mostly because, when I go, I don't NEED to be there on a special time (in this registration hour).. I can come whenever I want to. That's my (actual) question. I find the information about this on the site a bit hazy...

 

But thanks Queen_Sindel, will wait your answer.

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.

more than sufficient, almost double the excel size.

You can come whenever you want. If you need to pick something up at registration with your ticket type the desk will still be open during show hours. The earlier opening is merely there so that a large number of attendees is already sorted out when the doors open.

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?

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.

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.

I've honestly never been to NEC nor Excel.

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?

Yes, you can do that.
