A quick public service announcement for London MCM
Here's how they're doing the tickets for next week:

The plan is that you get your tickets and/or wristband at the marina entrance. Once you have a wristband you can go in through the East and West entrances and use it as you please.

Just letting everyone know to limit confusion.

Thanks Ice-climber, that's really useful!

Oh, I don't do much Facebooking, so this is good to know. Thanks for putting this up here!

Things may have changed since that pic was put up. The floor plan came out and it seems to contradict this.

I looks like the East entrance has become exit only and you have to walk around to the ticket hall entrance to get back in. Still, havn't got any clarification on this properly yet though...

I'm a bit miffed that you can't go in via the West entrance, but if it avoid that horrible gridlock from OCtober, it's worth it.

I really want clarification on whether the EAST entrance is usable, after last year's Foxy Bingo debacle!

Not sure. I think it is. GG hasn't got back to me on the forum yet. Although it's playing up right now too...

On the image linked there's no indication that the East entrance will be unusable? Both that and the West entrance are left unmarked.

Scroll down to the fourth post, there's a revised map that says "Entry to Comic con event via Waterfront only" by the West entrance.

No mention is made of the East entrance. But remember in OCtober they assured us the whole site was reserved for MCM, when in reality the East entrance was available for the ad agency that made Foxy Bingo's advert.

With the ad it was last minute it seems, and well it's down to Excel on how their space is used...

Apparently it was not the Foxy ad according to GG. He won't say what it actually was though...

Well yeah. It was more MCM's bogus claims that bothered me with that incident. "We've hired the whole Excel" was clearly not true. They only hired the concourse and display halls. The East entrance and it's connected conference rooms and halls was still available to be hired.

Doesn;t really matter now though does it?

I don't remember them every saying that... I know they said they were the only ones at Excel at the time. I don't think they could even now afford to hire the whole thing.

I'm fairly sure The Claw made that claim in one of the podcasts, but obviously that wasn't an official statement. (Because we all know how averse MCM are to those!)

And as we saw this time the East entrance wasn't usable for access but there was no indication of this until you'd walked quite some distance (and I was pushing my girlfriend in a wheelchair so getting that far, and back again, via lifts and that big slope to the boulevard was a major hassle!)
