Hi everyone! We know that many of you already making plans for Auto Assembly 2015 both in terms of your tickets for the convention, travel arrangements and most importantly for a large number of you, sorting out accommodation for where you will be staying over the convention weekend itself. As most of you will know by now, sales of rooms at our convention hotel, the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel have been more popular than ever this time around and despite the hotel providing us with more rooms than ever as part of our block allocation at the special convention rate, not only did we sell out of this initial block but rooms continued to sell out as the Hilton added more to this for us.
Many of you have still experienced difficulties in getting a room at the Hilton but we can confirm that the hotel has been able to allocate some more rooms to our discount rate block but these are in very limited numbers and after these rooms have sold out we can’t guarantee that we will be able to get any further rooms added to the Auto Assembly 2015 block. What we would strongly advise all of you to do now is to book your hotel rooms immediately if you haven’t already done so in the Hilton and if you’re not able to get the nights / room type that you require then please bear with us. We are attempting to find a source of overflow accommodation near to the Hilton but we have also set up a help page here on the website with additional information about nearby hotels and other accommodation options that are available to those of you who are attending and you can find this page here.
If you do find yourself looking for hotel accommodation away from the Hilton, we will also be providing detailed travel guides and information to help all of you to make attending the convention as easy as possible for those who opt to stay in either Birmingham or Coventry City Centres, both of which are just a short train ride away from the Hilton.
Above all, please do not worry about finding anywhere to stay over the convention weekend as our entire team are here to help you to enjoy the convention and to make it a stress-free weekend.
The Auto Assembly Team
