Michelle Ryan, didn’t have enough time to meet her at Birmingham so please get her to come to Glasgow 

If she was able to come to Glasgow, she would've been announced at the same time as her other appearances, Green. It's not unheard of that schedules change, but I wouldn't expect it.

I’m not an amateur to these events I know how it works, just putting it out there that I’d like her at Glasgow

Guests can only be announced once the contracts are finalised, Matthew. Asking for them doesn't speed them up. ;)

Plus, there's already a good few announced, including a few I wouldn't mind meeting if I was able to make it over. :smile:

The mods have been through this a number of times before with Matthew, but apparently he thinks asking yet another time may Change the Response... ;)

Sorry guys, Just getting a bit excited as its getting close now :)

Still not decided if I'm attending this year yet, but like most people, still hoping that someone is announced who changes my mind. I know SM can't cater to everyone's taste and that guests can only be announced when things are confirmed, but I just cant help getting a little envious seeing all the great guest announcements popping up on facebook for all the shows down south :(

As P.T. Barnum once (allegedly) said "You can please all the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time."

Ignore it Mr Leming, given the lack of recent activity on the account I'd be willing to bet it's a sock puppet account for a user who's main account has been banned, especially given the other recent bridge dwelling users who have been ranting about a certain moderator.

What it all boils down to is - 

1) Which actors/actresses are in the UK at the time of the event.

2) Which actors/actresses can Showmasters afford to pay an appearance fee.

3) Which actors/actresses actually want to appear at an event.

And 4) If an actor/actress gets paying work between the time they're announced as a guest and the time the event happens, the work comes first.

Yeah, admittedly I kinda went off on one there, hence the "Sorry mods" at the end. :blush: lol

Point 3 would also cover seeing negative comments on forums and social media like the above and being put off going to the location assuming all opinions of the event are the same. ;)

Nope, that was someone who swore never to come back after I "mistreated" other users in Glasgow... because as you all know SM hate all Scots and I am the ringleader. :rolleyes:

It looks like a barren year for Glasgow. Already done Birmingham and going to London but still hitting Glasgow as it'll be nicer to browse the stalls than the mad panic of vq tickets, lining up for autographs and wondering if you'll get your turn or should you run to your upcoming photoshoot or risk going to that late

I still support this, but it's a shame it never grew into a bigger event. It is what it is - a small convention with mainly repeat guests.

Just a shame a city like Glasgow has never had a convention with a big lineup, like 40 quality guests...

Guys, again: please stop it now. We go through this every year.

SM have explained their stance on the Glasgow Show a number of times. They have always planned to make it bigger, it was expected to grow over the years. But they have also said the regional Shows will always be smaller. It is not going to happen that Glasgow or any other regional Show will jump to 40 guests, especially not when the number don't seem to give the possibility to expand at all.

Support the Show, help promote it. If the number of attendees grows the Show will grow.

A minor improvement would be better signage at the event.  A couple of years ago, I wandered around three or four times wondering where the guests were before I noticed someone going upstairs.

I hope there are a few more additions before this goes ahead. Now that London’s out of the way this is the next one. Less than 2 weeks to go. It’s going to seem so strange and small after the madness of London last weekend. This is a good thing though. It’s going to be great to have room to move

Looking forward to going to this for both days but it’s a little lopsided guest-wise at the moment. By that I mean a lot of Saturday only guests so Sunday’s looking a bit thin. I don’t have any specific guests in mind but a few more Sunday guests will make me happy and guarantee my attendance both days.
