I'm sure this question has been asked before but will tickets that were purchased for the events previously planned in 2020 (entry, diamond passes, autographs, photos etc) still be valid for the 2021 event if it does indeed go ahead?

Yes.  I'm not sure how it will work with Eventbrite, but with other con companies ticket sites, they auto updated when they opened their shops again.

He can be the covid monitor.  

It’s not quite as easy as that though. If the government say it is possible for the event to go ahead, then they will do it. If for nothing else than because of insurance purposes. Insurance companies

I hate to be a Debbie Downer*, but I still wouldn't go booking anything non-refundable for July, just in case.   (*I don't really, I love it)

I see that the website has been updated and the Guests are now shown in a different format. Also notice that there seems to be quite a few guests now missing (Karen Allen for example even though she’s still on the front screen) but I haven’t seen any “official” cancellation posts.

**Edit**

I think there needs to be more work done with the new design as if you go to the guests via the “More” option on the front screen, you see loads, compared with going via the “Guests” menu option.

I see that it’s now possible to buy/pre-order autographs from guests on the website (as in autographs at the event, not sendin preorders or those included with passes) - will there be an announcement soon about how this is going to work in practice?
 

Are these autos going to be somehow guaranteed or work similar to VQ, will this be the only way to buy autos or will They be Available at the event aswell? How Will the priority work?

Although they have a “Buy Now” button on the website, when you go through to Eventbrite, there aren’t actually any autos available to buy, just photos and diamond passes (and entry and talks). As it’s a new website my guess (and it is just my guess) is that they still have a few things to iron out and that button shouldn’t be there on the auto section.

I agree with Wrong.  It's always possible they might one day try it again but as it's a function that's only on a few and not most of the guest pages and as it takes you to an area that requires a password, I'm guessing it's an error.

Seems like they are adding a Lot of British Guests to the event, my concern know is that it will go ahead sans the international guest. but due to the whole " The guest is unable to attend but the event is still on so no refund on entry" spiel, people will have to swallow the cost of the entry, or attend a show that they no longer have any interest in....

On the note of the New Website I hope they put the Direct Forum Button back.

I thought this as well, but they have previously stated that if people who bought tickets to the 2020 events want a refund, they can get it after the 2021 event, as long as they don’t use the tickets.

Thanks for that, will have to look for that post.
