Yes, you are reading that right. With now less than two weeks to go before Europe's largest ever Auto Assembly rolls around, the dates for Auto Assembly 2013 have been announced and ticket bookings are already open for 2013. But that's not all, there's also a brand new way to book your tickets available!
Auto Assembly 2013 has been confirmed to be returning to the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel in Birmingham in the UK. Next year's convention will be held over the weekend of 9-11 August 2013, so be sure to put those dates in your diaries now! Tickets are already on sale, priced at £50 for an adult weekend pass, with very reasonable hotel room rates (£62 per night for a double room) also arranged. As a bonus, if you book in August, you can get a special discount on a weekend ticket to the same cost as tickets to Auto Assembly 2012 - that is, a special rate of £45.
Alternatively, Auto Assembly are now offering a special scheme where you can buy a "pass for life". These special passes for attendees and dealers offer the choice of paying a one-off payment to guarantee yourself a place at all future Auto Assemblies for as long as the convention runs. For a standard attendee the price is £150 - so if you plan on attending every year it will pay for itself very quickly!
One final Auto Assembly 2013 update - there are going to be three
voice actor guests again next year, all of whom are set to be announced at Auto Assembly 2012. Look forward to the announcement!
