Autographica 2017

Recommended Posts

Hi - just wondering if the event is still planned to go ahead - no response to any emails sent to Showmasters and obviously no guest updates for some considerable time now.

Appreciate that there are probably things ongoing elsewhere but for those of us that need to book flights, hotels etc. an update would be good.

 

Hoping that it does go ahead - the Autographica event is one of our 'must do' events each year where its great catching up with old friends and making new ones

Yes, the Event is still going ahead. It's still over half a year to go, no guest announcements for a Long time is not unusual. Autographica does not get the number of guests as let's say LFACC, so "dry spells" appear fairly often.

Also just want to ask/check are my tickets which were originally for the November set date are they going to carry over for the May dates?

Seeing the Event was officially postponed as far as I know the tickets do carry over.

I have asked, but I have not heard back yet. I'll follow up next week. Sorry, totally slipped my mind.

Ok think I have my answer now!

 

Absolutely gutted about this second cancellation.

 

As a Bond fan Autographica is really the only SM event where i can get to meet the rarer guests -some of whom were going to this May's event.

 

Star Wars fans are more than catered for with most other SM events, so good for them really but small consolation for others...

 

Hopefully Autographica will return bigger and better than before as this is the most relaxed of all SM's shows and I'm really beginning to miss it!

Really gutted this show has been cancelled, The Guest list was looking good. As above, its the best show to meet the older guests. Bring it back soon SM. :smile:

i like this event, sorry to see it canceled. must admit i was not going to attend this time around as no guests i wanted to travel for . perfectly understandable that it will be moved to another date if theres little interest being created or you can't get the guests you'd need this time around. shame for people allready booked up but thats the risk of doing anything well in advance. Hopefully the next event will be a success. good luck.

You have really really disappointed me Showmasters, that's the second time and not long ago sorted out my accommodation and travel....

 

In the current time I am lamenting what to replace it with...? And please don't cancel/postpone priorly due to guest availability....

It is all very curious I must say and the more it sinks in, the more annoyed I'm getting...

 

I for one haven't yet booked either my attendance tickets or travel/accommodation (thank god!) But with another 4 months until the event was scheduled for, I'm sure I'm not alone.

 

How can SM predict with any certainty that the event would not be a success at this earlier stage???

 

It just seems they've jumped the gun and cancelled the event and to hell with anyone who's shelled out their hard earned!

 

Still not to worry, I'm sure the resource that's been freed up will be utilised at yet another Star Wars dominated con...

Ticket sales and social media chat will be the most obvious indicator. Lack of both will probably be what has be the main prompt for this.

Sorry guys, but that is it. I left this open though SM seems to have closed the announcement topic on purpose because I wanted people to have a place where they could chat and maybe voice some good wishes for the event's future.

 

But as this seems to turn into yet another "all you care about is Star Wars" topic I will close. Raylenth has kindly explained some reasons which may be behind this decisions in the post above mine.
