Just wondering if any new news on this years event???

 

I think until you start seeing Mass gatherings allowed again, I would say this event won't be happening. Hope this helps? :mellow:

The camel is right.

There has been no official news - trust me, if there had been, somebody would have posted it here within 3 and a half minutes.

Once the situation pans out more, more info will b released, but as it is its 7 months away, so no doubt it will happen but I imagine there will b condierably less people and much quieter.

I would imagine SM can do more planning at 1-2 months notice once you-know-what eases

The current government target is to have offered a vaccine to every adult by the autumn. That makes it seem unlikely that an event like this, where social distancing is unfeasible, will be permitted as early as July.

i don't think that will put event organisators off. Like i said in Gen Chat i bet events can b done at reduced capacity

Reduced capacity = reduced profits or, more likely, operating at a loss. Highly unlikely.

= reduced (by a lot) guests = reduced (by a lot) vendors = reduced (by a lot) experience = no grooviness.

I disagree; I think the fact that showmasters may more likely have to either cancel or postpone. Another convention (cannot name it as it's against SMs policies) has postponed until november!

I think we still have to wait and see, I'm afraid. I for one would prefer to postpone because the first event I'd like to attend would be a 'normal' one then. Without having to worry about the pandemic still...and just enjoy the event as we did before.

Also a lot of them have presumably already paid. For a big event expecting a large crowd. If you then get a small event and a small crowd surely you’d expect a (partial) refund. 
 

Even the first postponement meant ticket holders would have been paying summer prices for a full venue then got a smaller winter event for the same price. 
 

 there’s also the problem that anyone who bought a ticket for last summer can still decide they’d rather have the refund afterwards. If the event was limited to say 5000 and that number are sold; 1000 could still decide against going and it’s even further under capacity.
