An excerpt from the interview:
Is there a lot of money involved in a convention of this size, and did any of it come out of your own pockets?
We've been pretty lucky with Auto Assembly and every year - with the exception of Auto Assembly 2004 - has broken even and left us with some money left over which has either been reinvested back into future years or gone to our nominated charities.
In terms of home much they have cost, earlier conventions were on a fairly small budget, but this year at a rough guess it is going to cost us around £7,500 which has to come from attendees, fanzine sales, and dealer table bookings which is why we we're asking for as many people to pre-register as possible!
In the interview, Mr. Plumbe went on to speak about attendance and other issues regarding AA that has happened over the years along with one thing that was very suprising: HASBRO UK doesn't seem to want any affiliation with the convention despite numerous attempts by Sven and Simon to get them to Auto Assembly.
