New information has been received concerning Auto Assembly 2009.


Hi everyone,

We had an incredible response to our first survey about Auto Assembly 2009 and it's allowed us to make a lot of key decisions for next year's Auto Assembly convention to help us make it the biggest and best Transformers convention EVER that Europe will ever see. Thanks to YOUR input, we can confirm that Auto Assembly 2009 will be a TWO-DAY Transformers-only convention to be held once again in Birmingham, England, this time in our new venue, the Holiday Inn right in the City Centre.

We are still working on the exact date but we have a lot of exciting plans for the weekend including not one but TWO voice actors and a packed weekend of activities with so much going on that you won't have much free time during the weekend and plenty of different acitivies and events each day. Full weekend passes will be available as well as the option to book for single days but once again, we want to make sure that the convention is tailored to fit what YOU all want. So we're running another more detailed survey...

This time we want to know exactly what you want to see during the weekend. It's your chance to influence the programme during the weekend - what the focus of the convention will be, what events and activities we will have and even the type of things you want to see from our dealers!! 2009 is the 25th Anniversary of Transformers so lets celebrate in style!

Even if you haven't attended Auto Assembly before we still want to hear your views, and we'd love to hear from those of you who live outside of the UK who are considering attending in the 25th anniversary year next year. Don't forget that EVERY vote counts in this survey!

We will be taking all of your responses into consideration in planning for next year, as well as all of the additional comments you may make and we've already had some wonderful ideas come forward and some VERY useful comments that we will be taking on board for next time so those of you who have already responded have started to shape Auto Assembly 2009!

You can find the survey here:- http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=J ... lHMQ_3d_3d

The survey is only going to be open for a limited period of time as we want to confirm the date and first voice actor as soon as possible (we have one close to signing on the dotted line already!) and open bookings quickly so the closing date is Wednesday 15th October 2008.

Thanks in advance and we hope to see many of you there next year!

I am so there. Better start putting some cash away when I get back to the nurseries in January though, a full weekend is going to get really expensive really quickly. I think I'll start up the swap meet thread over at the AA boards again a bit closer to the time, I got hold of some cool goodies through that this year.

I wish I could come, but if things continue the way they do right now, I won't be able to come. A full weekend would be so awesome, just think about it, get totally pissed on the first evening, then go to the con at the second day with a hangover and buy TFs that you don't really want to :D
Fu**ing money.

I may be missing something, but this email was sent out 2 weeks ago. Another update has been given reminding people that the survey closes soon and more responses are needed.

I had tried a few times to post this to the news section but for some reason the security image wouldn't display properly while I was at work for well over a week :S

We've extended the closing date a little though so we're ending it tomorrow morning at 10:00 am GMT so you've got a little time to reply. Thanks to everyone who has replied so far though - your comments and ideas have been great and given us loads of cool ideas to work with already!

And no, Auto Assembly will ALWAYS stay in Birmingham it started as a West Midlands based Transformers convention and I don't drive so for me personally I couldn't get to anywhere outside of Birmingham without a lot of help and to be honest, it would add a LOT to our running costs holding it too far away from home for either of us with added travelling expenses, venue hire, AV hire, hotel costs etc. Trust us, we've worked it all out!!
