Meet & Greet

Postby Elainec » Sun May 23, 2010 2:21 pm

Since we're only a few weeks away from TSE I wondered if it was possible to clarify what the dress code was for the meet and greet. I vaguely remember seeing something over on GW which suggested that it wasn't the same as the AT events and smart/casual would suffice. But that's where I'm not sure on what we could get away with, as smart to one person isn't to another.

If there is a list of what not to wear, for example, could we wear jeans as long as they aren't ripped? Can we wear shorts and/or trainers, and what about t-shirts?

I don't particularly want to overdress and stand out, nor do I want to look too scruffy and stand out.

Just curious to know what clothes I need to include on my list of things to pack.

Ta muchly :)

Elaine,

Think of it as "a sit down drinks with canapes type of party" that you'd go to at a hotel where you were meeting friends. So basically not scruffy. I personally wouldn't think shorts and trainers are suitable. Jeans are okay provided not scruffy or torn. Smart casual or smart. People can really dress up too if they want to. Seriously, it's whatever you feel comfortable in at a smart party at a nice hotel.
;)

And for those who have been debating. Yes it is sit down. No seats are allocated so you can choose to sit with who you like when you arrive.

Just remember, it's not polite to try to take the entire country home with you. Leave some Canada for the rest of us. ;)

Hey, if you're just a little slow on the uptake, that's not my problem... And I did think about taking pressies for the family, but then I'm told it's the thought that counts, so I've decided they're going to be for me!! :shock:

Yes, that's our sole, very selfless motivation. We're all interested in steal-um, sharing in the TimTams because we're trying to help make room in Pagan's luggage. ;)

meet and greet

Postby desertblossom » Thu Jun 24, 2010 1:09 am

Here's one of those stupid questions for Becky or whoever. What's the difference between the Meet Your Fellow Sancturians and the Meet and Greet? Will any of the stars be at the one I paid extra for (like at the Gatecon cocktail party), and if not, what exactly am I paying for?

Ooh I can answer that one.

Meeting other Sancturians is all about meeting fellow attendees, some of whom might be newbies to conventions or Gabit Events - this helps anyone who could be attending by themselves to meet other people. This is free and won't have any of the actors attending, generally a few (senior) stewards, Gabit staff and any of the G4 who might be available. This is just a fun way to break the ice and get to meet lots of other people.

The Meet & Greet is something people have paid for, and any of the actors who are available, will turn up to this and have a general stroll around the room chatting to people at their tables. I'm not sure if photos will be taken, but there will likely be restrictions on an attendee taking photos, ie no photos at all whilst the actor is at your table.

The cocktail party for MTM is similar to this in that RDA will circulate though the room, spending time chatting at every table and then a official photo will be taken which is then printed off for you over the weekend and you can take it away with you.

Food is generally also provided at both the evening events, but not at the meeting other Sancturians in the afternoon.

Hope this helps.

Elaine is correct :) But for further information see the run down below.

Hi Guys time for an Update on our Vancouver 2010 events.

We are putting up the Pre-sales for Photo and Auto Ops for TSE on the Legends site at 2pm Vancouver time (10pm UK time) tomorrow, Friday 25th June. They will remain on sale until they are sold out or until Friday 2nd July at 2pm (Vancouver time). At that point any remaining ops will be taken down and held for cash sales at the event. Photo ops are very limited and so are restricted to one op per attendee per guest while stocks last. Auto ops are more abundant so you can order more than one per attendee per guest if you wish. If you are buying ops for someone else, please make sure you put all your SE numbers in the information box on your order. Please order your ops in as few transactions on the site as possible ( Ie put them all in your cart before checking out rather than doing it one at a time). This will reduce admin and fees.
All the tickets for the ops will be in the ordering persons ticket packet when they register. Prices for each op will be on the listings.

Also going up are pre orders for PICK UP ONLY of event garments. This year we are offering normal t-shirts and hoodies only. You can choose which of the event logos you have on the shirts. There will be separate listings for each size of each type of garment so please check the listings and choose carefully. If you make a mistake let us know asap. Please direct queries to regsitration@gabitevents.co.uk rather than the Legends team.

Legends are also please to be pre-selling for PICK UP ONLY Sanctuary for Kids T-shirts. All the profits from the sale of these limited edition shirts will be going to Sanctuary for Kids. Again, different listing for every size.

Sizes for all garments range from Small to XXXL. Prices will be on the listings. I am going to say this again. all orders are for pick up at the event only. We are not going to be shipping anything before or after the event. Please order the items you want in advance as, to keep costs down (and therefore maximise the amount of money going to charity), we will only have a very limited number of extra items for size swaps.

We've had some questions about the differences between all the "meet up" events we have at our events and as a few are new and different in Vancouver here's the skinny:-

Meet your fellow Sancturians (TSE) Friday afternoon time/ Location TBA (at AT events called Amanda's fans not alone) Free and open to all, even if you are not new or travelling on your own. No refreshments are provided. Bring your own ( there's a starbucks in the hotel :o)

Meet & Greet - (TSE) Friday evening. Paid ticket entry, munchies provided, cash bar in the room, Guests will be in attendance ( no I can't tell you who!) and circulate tables. Other entertainment also planned ( but it's top secret!) This is NOT a photo or Auto opportunity fest with the guests. Policies on use of cameras will be provided later but absolutely NO Autographs will be allowed.

MTM (and for that matter AT events) Cocktail Party, Thursday Evening of MTM.(also known as a Charmed Pass). At a GABIT event this is a ticket entry, formal dress, sit down buffet three course hot meal. The main guest will be present after dinner to circulate the tables. When the chat time is over, a group shot of the table is taken by our GABIT photographer and each person on the table is given a copy of the print. You may take pictures during the event, but not when the guest is at your table. Please be respectful of others and the guests when taking pictures, if we deem anyone to be being intrusive we will ask them to stop taking pictures. While the guest is circulating we ask everyone to stay in their seats unless they need to go to the bar or the loo. ie, no standing near the table the guest is on seemingly chatting or taking pictures.

Abnormal's Ball ( TSE/ AT events) Saturday night disco in the main hall. this is a "fancy dress costume" ball. Come as an abnormal. You can go as far or near as you please with this one. As long as you can describe what your abnormality is, you can enter. We've had some great costumes and clever abnormalities. No food (unless you count blue jello if they can find enough fridges!) cash bar. Disco music in Hall, there's a lobby outside the hall where people can chat away from the music. Cameras generally allowed, if any guests do attend, please, again be respectful and certainly do not ask for autographs.

"Duct Tape Ball" Saturday night The theme for MTM is duct tape, bring some duct tape, and or wear some. Have fun. it's that easy. No food, cash bar. Disco Music. There's a lobby outside the hall where people can chat away from the music. Cameras allowed. RDA will likely NOT be attending this evening event.

New for Vancouver 2010, because we tend to have attendees hanging out on Sunday night in the lovely ren lobby, and there isn't a place to do that at the Sheraton, we have arranged some wind down gatherings.

"Nautilus decompression Zone" Sunday evening (TSE) ( location to be announced in the venue) cash bar, no food. No disco music.

"Jack's Cabin" (MTM) Same as above.

I think that covers all the stuff we have gong on in the evenings. There is nothing formal planned on Friday evening of MTM. The hall/ reg and dealers room will all be closed so that is a good time for people to go out together.

We are not releasing the schedules yet, and e-tickets will be going out no later than two weeks before the event.
If you have any questions PLEASE e-mail eventquestions@gabitevents.co.uk or registration@gabitevents.co.uk . DO NOT PM individual members of the team on forums, we're extremely busy and covering for each other on these addresses, if you PM or privately e-mail someone your question may not be dealt with promptly.

We are just over a month away from bringin you two events we have been working on for years. We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver
Safe travels

Thanks!
If I understand correctly, there will be assigned seats for the meet and greet, and the celebs will come around and sit with us for a limited number of minutes.

So basically it's like the MTM cocktail party. Is that correct?

I believe the meet and greet is little more relaxed because the dress code is not quite as formal, and you can sit where you want and with whoever you want, so if you're going with friends you should all be able to sit together. You can also move around the table so that each person might get a chance to sit next to a guest at some point - just remember to leave 1 empty seat for them.

No there is no seating plan for Meet & Greet you decide when you arrive. Once everyone is seated the guests wll circluate but it will be a lot less formal than a cocktail party. Munchies I think will be on your tables rather than a central buffet.

Becks, thanx for the speedy reply!

This is a lot like the cocktail party at Gatecon 08, which was awesome btw. Yes, it sounds much more relaxed than what Gabit usually throws, and for that I send a big 'thank you!'

I can't wait to see what celebs show up!

Just an update I missed this in my first reply, don't leave an empty seat at the tables, because there won't be enough seats for everyone.

Ooh thanks for the info Becky, I suppose it's just automatic to assume that the guests would sit down for a couple of minutes.
