Auto Assembly 2010 – The Rush Is ON!!!!!!!!

Written by Duh_Prez on July 26, 2010 | News | Tags: , ,

Every year, the attendance figure for Auto Assembly has grown consistently from its humble beginnings 10 years ago to becoming Europe’s largest Transformers convention. One thing that we can always depend on is that no matter how steady bookings are throughout the year – despite the odd surges following major announcements – is that we have a massive rush in the closing couple of weeks when everyone who hasn’t booked and wants to attend remembers that they still need to order their tickets…


Last year, in the final 18 days we had 85 bookings – 17% of the total turnout of the convention in the space of just a couple of weeks. We have already set a new European attendance record (at the time of writing this, we have 512 bookings) and with bookings coming in faster than ever, we predict that the convention could well be a total sell out over the next two weeks or so.

At the moment we still have approximately 100 full weekend tickets available and 50 Sunday passes and that’s it! Non-Attendee Packs are also available and there is no limit on the number of these that are available as they are produced to order. If there are going to be any on-the-door tickets available, we won’t know about these until about 48 hours before the convention and we will announce this on the convention website. If these are available, we *may* have a limited number of one-day Saturday passes on sale, but the only tickets we can guarantee at the moment are pre-bookings.

With the convention being this close, many of you may feel that we have nothing left to announce and that everything you can see on the website it is for this year’s convention. Well we still have a LOT more to come… We have just confirmed our FOURTEENTH guest for this year – Titan comic artist Lee Bradley who is making a return to Auto Assembly and although Lee will only be with us for the Saturday, he’ll be involved in a panel with our other comic guests and will be around all day to meet fans providing sketches and will no doubt be around for our Saturday night party!

But what other announcements do we have on the way? We are going to be announcing the full list of items in this year’s charity auction shortly (which all of our Non-Attendees will be able to bid on), news on some great prize draws we will be running for all pre-registrants, full details and images of this years convention merchandise, and a lot more surprises that we have in store…!

The convention is taking place over the weekend of Friday 13th – Sunday 15th August 2010 at the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre, Birmingham, England. There will be Friday and Saturday evening programmes that are exclusive for weekend attendees and the Saturday evening will play host to a massive musical party, costume competition, and the script and disco / karaoke.

We have frozen the ticket prices for the convention from Auto Assembly 2009 and full weekend tickets are £45 for adults and £35 for children, students and senior citizens, with under 5s admitted free. Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are available for £145. One day tickets for Saturday have sold out, but one day tickets for Sunday are still available and cost £25 for adults, £18 for children, students or senior citizens and under 5’s as always are free. However as they are limited, if you want to come along for just the day then you need to book NOW!

For more details on the convention, to see a full list of all the guests and activities taking place over the weekend, or to book your tickets, visit the website at

We hope to see you all in August 2010.
