AT10

 

 

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT IS AT10?

AT10 is Amanda Tapping’s tenth very own whole weekend event which is run by Gabit Events to enable just over 250 of her fans to spend a weekend getting to know one another and meeting Amanda in a relaxed, unpressurised environment, and raising money for the two charities supported by the event – Sanctuary for kids and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

 

WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF AN AT EVENT?

 

An itinerary for AT10 will be made available nearer the time but in essence it is a weekend where Amanda does several Q&As on stage, interacts with her fans, has a professional photograph done with each fan, signs two in person autographs for each attendee, conducts a charity auction (which is both moving and hilarious), has tea with four lucky fans through a raffle and meets lucky fans who have bought cocktail party tickets for the Friday night and chats to them for a while. It is basically a boutique event for Amanda's fans to have a leisurely time and relax with other like minded people while meeting her.

 

WHEN AND WHERE IS AT10 BEING HELD?

AT10 will take place on 6th - 8th April 2018 at the Renaissance Hotel, London Heathrow.

 

REGISTRATION INFORMATION


All hall seating will be done in ticket purchase order.  Therefore the earlier you buy your ticket the nearer the front you will sit. If you wish to sit with others you must all register as a single group.  You will be given the option to pay separately once tickets are allocated.  We are not able to further link groups of people in the main hall.  The maximum group size is 4.

All cocktail party seating will be done once we have received details of people who wish to sit together closer to the Event itself.  You do not have to register for tickets together to sit together at the cocktail party.

WHAT IF MY PAYMENT GOT TO YOU SHORT?

If you sent your transfer and we did not receive the required amount we will contact you to let you know and inform you how this should be paid. It is unfortunately very common for a £6 fee to be deducted even if you specify that you as the sender should pay all the fees, in these cases, you will be asked to bring the shortfall with you to the event and pay it at registration in cash. There is no need to send a second small transfer.

 

COCKTAIL PARTY WITH AMANDA (CHARMED PASS UPGRADES)

 

The cocktail party on the Friday night is a very popular occasion. Tables of 9 have a full hot buffet dinner and drinks and are joined by Amanda during the evening for a chat. There is a strict limit on how many tickets there are for this due to time constraints and to allow Amanda time to talk with each table for a while.

No jeans or trainers at this party please. This is a smart casual/dress up occasion.

 

 

WILL THERE BE DAY TICKETS?

Sorry, no.

 

SEATING ALLOCATIONS – MAIN HALL

The front two to three rows in the main hall are allocated for stewards. Following these, seating will be allocated according to the time stamp on our registration system.

 

 I WANT TO SIT WITH MY FRIENDS, HOW CAN I ARRANGE THAT?

If you are purchasing tickets and wish to sit with friends in the main hall you MUST book together as a group. Only up to a maximum of 4 persons in each final group.
We cannot accommodate seating requests from people who register apart from one another. Accommodating such requests would push people who registered early further back in the hall and we are not prepared to do this. We are therefore not able to accommodate seating requests for groups of more than four people.

 

DOES ONE PERSON HAVE TO SEND ONE PAYMENT FOR EVERYONE’S TICKET IN THEIR GROUP?

No, everyone can pay separately if they wish but they must book on the same registration. You need to let the Registration director know who is paying and how you are paying when your allocations are confirmed. 

Remember, one group member must make the booking and list all four names to guarantee that you will sit together.


  

CAN I GET A REFUND IF I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO ATTEND AT10?

 

No, all tickets are non-refundable and not transferable. All ticket transfers must be authorised through Registration. To prevent scalping, the tickets are only for the person in whose name they were originally applied for and each person will be required to provide ID at Registration to collect their tickets.

If you are not able to attend the event after you have paid for your tickets, please contact registration and let the, know. There is no waiting list so no refunds or transfers are available.

 

DISABILITY ACCESS POLICY

I WANT TO DONATE SOMETHING TO HELP WITH FUNDRAISING AT AT10

Amanda’s fandom is extremely generous and we welcome donations of fan memorabilia, signed items etc to our fundraising efforts. It is the generosity of the fans which help to make the auctions and fund raising activities so successful in raising money for such worthwhile causes. Please contact Rebecca Ford at Rebecca.Ford@gabitevents.co.uk to check if the item is suitable for fundraising at AT10 and please do give her time to reply. 

Gabit Events warrants that 100% of monies raised at the auction and through fund raising activities at AT10 will be taken directly by representatives from Hearing Dogs on that weekend or paid via the internet directly to the "Sanctuary for kids" website or forwarded to "Sanctuary for kids" immediately after the Event. No administration costs are ever taken by GABIT Events in connection with any of our fundraising activities.

 

 

WHERE CAN I GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT AT10?

Please, in the first instance, check the Event FAQ above. If you don't find what you are looking for, please e-mail Ask_TheG4@gabitevents.co.uk and someone will respond to you within 48 hours. Please do not use PM systems on forums or DM systems on Twitter, or e-mail individual directors or staff members with general questions as this makes it very difficult for you to get the correct information quickly. The above e-mail is monitored by more than one person so you will get the right response from the right person.

The Gabit Forum on our website has members who are very happy to advise or help anyone with any questions about our Events. A lot of our Senior Stewards, Stewards and Staff frequent the forum and general threads there so do go on over and make yourself known. Amanda’s fandom is one of the friendliest fandoms that there is. By the time you get to AT10 you will most probably have made some online friends to meet in real life!

 

WHO ARE GABIT AND THE G4?

The G4, the directors of GABIT Events Limited, Julia Hague, Becky Preen, Kay Jacobs and John Goode, formed their own company in September 2002, GABIT Events Ltd, with the intention of bringing Amanda Tapping to London for her own event with her own fans. In 2005 they did just that. The G4 also took the team to Vancouver in 2010 and ran the “Sanctuary Experience” for Sanctuary fans and “Meet the Man” a one man Richard Dean Anderson Event.


IS THIS THE LAST AT EVENT?

AT10 is the tenth and final Amanda Tapping Event in the format which we have been using for nearly 13 years.

As Amanda personally told fans on stage at AT9, the G4 and Amanda have decided that as we have run the same format event now for nearly 13 years we feel that it is time to change things around in the future. Discussions and thoughts will be ongoing as to how and what this change would be, and when.

In the meantime the G4 and staff will be taking a break.

 

WHAT EXPERIENCE DO GABIT HAVE IN RUNNING EVENTS?

The G4 are an experienced conference and convention organising team, with over 60 years of combined experience. They specialise in Events for Amanda Tapping and her fans and in raising money for causes close to Amanda's heart. Please see the information about the G4 and Gabit Staff and a history of our fundraising with Amanda’s fandom on the website.
