We’re now just SIX WEEKS away from Auto Assembly 2012 and we’ve got some great news in this weeks update as well as some VERY important information for those of you who haven’t booked your tickets yet for Europe’s Largest Transformers Convention taking place over the weekend of 3rd – 5th August in Bimingham, England…
Pre-Registrant Prize Draw
We can now announce details of a fantastic FREE prize draw that we are running at Auto Assembly 2012. To be eligible for this draw, you need to have a WEEKEND ticket for the convention (an Adult, Elderly or Dealer pass) or a NON-ATTENDEE ticet and you must be present at our Closing Ceremony that will take place on the Sunday afternoon (although we will obviously make exceptions to this for those with Non-Attendee Packages). You must also have booked for the convention in ADVANCE – it is NOT open to those who pay on the door so it’s another great reason to pre-register for the convention!
The prize? The winner will receive two full weekend tickets to Auto Assembly 2013 (the date for which we will be announcing shortly) along with THREE NIGHTS accommodation in a twin or double room at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel!
Because the competition includes hotel accommodation as part of the prize, it is only open to adult attendees aged 18 or over and must be awarded in person. The hotel prize is also for the room and breakfast ONLY. Additional room expenses are to be paid for by the prize winner. No cash alternatives are avaialable for this prize and it is non-transferrable but it is a total package worth almost £300.
Ticket Bookings Deadline
Many of us on the Committee will be arriving at the Hilton a few days before the convention to make sure that everything is ready for all of you when you arrive for Auto Assembly 2012. Also, we want to try to have a few days to relax before the chaos begins! As such, to make sure that we can process all of the bookings in time for the convention, we have now set the FINAL cut-off date for you to pre-register for the convention and to get your tickets.
To book your tickets online for Auto Assembly 2012, you will need to order these through the website by NO LATER than 12:00 noon GMT on Wednesday 1st August 2012. After this time, you will ONLY be able to get tickets for the convention by purchasing them on the day.
Benefits of pre-registration include:
- A personalised pass
- Entry into the pre-registration prize draw
- Early pass pick-up from 12:00 noon on Friday 3rd August 2012
Some on the door places will be available but we do not recommend that you leave booking until the last minute. If you wait until the day itself, you will have to wait while we process your booking so you won’t gain admission to the convention as quickly as our pre-registrants!
Also, we want to remind everyone that in 2011 we had almost 15% of our TOTAL attendance figure book their tickets in the final 7 days… do you really want to take a chance and be disappointed this year and miss out?
Kitbash Workshop Convention Exclusive
An update now on our convention exclusive for 2012… the Marlboor head kit for Generations Wheeljack that has been produced for us by Calloway Customs to accompany this year’s Kitbash Workshop. The Gold Kits have now SOLD OUT completely and we are down to about 10 of the Silver Kits. They have been a phenomenal success but if you want one of these you are now going to have to hurry. They are available for those attending the convention or those who buy our Non-Attendee Pack but you will need to order yours quickly to avoid disappointment.
The Bronze Kits are also selling quickly, but we estimate that the Silver and Bronze Kits will all be sold out within the next seven days, after which point you will only be able to order the Basic Kits comprising on the unpainted heads. More details can be found on the Auto Assembly website.
