Auto Assembly 2008 Prize Draw!!
Pre-registrations are coming along really well for Auto Assembly 2008 and we're well on course to beat not only our all-time attendance record but the European attendance record as well, but there's still plenty of time to get your bookings in if you haven't already and there are plenty of reasons for you to pre-register!
Not only will pre-registrants get earlier access to the convention compared with on-the-door attendees, therefore giving you a better chance of grabbing the early bargains from all our dealers, but with our now infamous goodie bag, there are some items that are limited in terms of how many we have. Some have already run out but with others that we are trying to negotiate, these may be limited so the earlier you book, the better chance you have of getting more free gifts on your arrival!
A Better Convention
Next, as you know, Auto Assembly 2008 is a non-profit making event so every penny we get from registration fees goes back into the convention towards venue hire, guest expenses, equipment hire, stationery, printing, postage and producing items for the goodie bag such as our postcards. Now, the more people who pre-register, the quicker we can pay all our costs and then the more money we have left over the more we can invest to give YOU a better convention!
For example, if we break even well in advance, then not only will we have two exclusive postcards but we may be able to afford to produce a third postcard free for everyone, or book an extra UK comic guest or add extra items to the programme for the day. Who knows, but we can't do it without the money being there!
Finally, EVERYONE who pre-registers will be entered into a FREE prize draw to win a selection of Transformers goodies! We're talking to some sponsors at the moment to see what items we can get but we already have some items prizes up already! We won't say what right now but keep an eye on the website for news on what they will be but remember, this is for pre-registrants ONLY and the winner/runner up will be announced on the day!!
What's Happening On The Day
It's going to be our biggest Auto Assembly yet with no less than TEN guests including all our usual comic guests and headlined by G1 voice actor Dan Gilvezan (Bumblebee). There will be a comic guest Q&A panel, a talk/Q&A session from Dan later in the day, guest signings, a charity auction and raffle, videos, a quiz, toy and art displays (including a display of rare "lucky draw" toys), plenty of dealers and much more besides!
So if you haven't already booked, head on over to the website now to book your tickets and we hope to see many of you there in August!
