    With over four weeks to go Auto Assembly 2012 is set to be a huge success once again. Since 2005 we have proudly held the attendance record for a European Transformers convention and today we have broken our previous record that we set in 2010! This sets a new landmark for us at the convention as we have only previously set new records or attendance figure milestones at the convention itself.

    Bookings are still coming in at a fantastic rate as we are now in our traditional rush period and we have still yet to announce some of the late surprises that we have in store for you. We have some great competitions lined up, another guest to announce, some great announcements for those of you who have been with us for several years, an update on this year's convention exclusive litho and our other exclusives, more artwork from our comic, and much more besides!

    Auto Assembly 2012 IS Europe's largest EVER Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd - 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out information about booking dealers tables, to sponsor the event or to enquire about advertising with us, visit the website at Auto Assembly

    Hope to see you there!

    Can it really set the ATTENDANCE record 4 weeks before anyone has actually attended?

    Good for you!
    But if you broke your attendance record and wanted to share it, shouldn't you relay what those numbers actually are?

    I figure they're waiting to get the final figures before they announce it, presumably at the convention itself :)

    If we had released an exact figure to go with the press release it would have been fairly redundant as it would have been out-of-date within a few minutes as we're still getting bookings coming in!

    We've beaten the previous record that we set back in 2010 with a month to go before the convention, but we will announce the final total at the convention itself on the Sunday afternoon (by which point we will have had the last of the on-the-door ticket sales and will have a 100% accurate final figure).
