Date: 24th, 25th, 26th of May 2013

Location: MCM Expo, Excel London, Royal Victoria Dock, London, E16 1XL. Map Here

Times: Friday 24th, 14.00 – 19.00
          Saturday 25th, 09.00 – 18.00
          Sunday 26th, 10.00 – 17.00

HOSTEL NOTICE
Iron has finished doing the hostel booking. If you still need a place to crash, you’ll have to book the hostel by yourself. Rough guestimate of cost will be £70 for friday, saturday and sunday night.

Right, it’s that time again to start our planning for probably the best invasion in Europe, MCM Expo. For those who are new, we’ll explain.
Every 6 months, the Movie Comics & Media Expo happens in London. Toy Soldiers from all over the UK, and even farther afield descend upon London to invade the biggest Con this side of the planet. It is Europes answer to San Diego Comic Con (the biggest one of all). Last October, roughly 70,000 people visited.

During this time, Toy Soldiers invade for all three days, spreading propaganda, dressing up in both cosplay and their own Toy Soldier uniforms, gawking at the amazing costumes, mucking about on the grass fields outside the building, the occasional alcoholic beverage for those of age, and much more.

Every Expo, we’ve also have our own table in the dealers/exhibitors area. It has been booked and paid for, however if you’d like to make a donation towards the cost of the table (£180) please send it via paypal to ‘[email protected]’ and mark it ‘MCM Expo’. The table will be at the far end of the Expo, near the exit. We’re not EXACTLY sure where, mainly because Expo is keeping that end of the hall flexible in case they sell out of tables and need to get another hall.

The second part of our regular invasion, is of course the Hostel, which has become our adopted base of operations for nearly every event in London. St. Christophers Village in London Bridge is the place where we recharge our batteries before galavanting back into the fray. Bar, basement area, music, bunk beds, showers, wifi, etc. etc. etc.

So, few things we need to get done first.

  • Book and pay for the table <- DONE
  • Book and pay for hostel <- DONE
  • Plan some shenanigans <- March, dance, missions, photo’s, challenges, prizes, whatever, ANYTHING!

Just thought I’d give everyone 2 updates:

1: I’m going to bring a tablet with me for the table. The tablet will serve 2 purposes, one it’ll be displaying in a loop some new propaganda videos I’m working on. Secondly, for the three days of the expo I’m turning off the email activation process. This means using the tablet we can sign people up on the spot!

2: Working on the assumption we wont have the usual large boxes that stand on our table, I’m going to bring a rolling workshop type trolley with demountable boxes. Wont be as big as those two boxes, but they’ll be appropriately decorated and suited to the job.

Finally. Who’s volunteering to sort out the hostel? I’ve got the expo table and such handled, however the hostel is vitally important (mainly for drinkies and sleepies).

Well, due to lack of interest (from a group outside of TSU), there wont be a hackspace as I’ve spoken to several you about.This was going to let us get our table for free, but that’s alright, as there was always a back up plan.

This means we can finally book the table with certainty, and get the ball rolling.
So you know, patches & pins WILL be on sale, as well as the new wristbands, and perhaps some other things.

And I’ll be contacting everyone individually about the hostel soon.

Sounds like a plan, Tink. I’ll bring a few unfolded boxes as well, so we go around and take pictures with people holding them. XD

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

The table has now been booked and paid for. We will be located at AF14, which is roughly near the far end/exit end again.

Sniper and myself will be setting up friday morning. If you want to make an early donation towards the cost of the table (£180), please send it to the TSU paypal account ‘[email protected]’ and mark it “Paying for services rendered by Dutch.” or just “MCM Expo” in case you don’t want to feel too dirty.
