I think that's just wishful thinking on your part. I can't see any way the event won't go ahead. (Excluding natural/unnatural disaster)

If it's going to make them money, even if it short changes people, what possible reason would they have to cancel it?

He's again come out with the abject rubbish that he's sold loads of tickets and that the event will be a sell out. Hardly anyone even posts on the DSTL forum anymore FFS, and no more than about 800 people have turned up to a UK Trek con in decades.
I've certainly known more respectable organisers say numbers are limited to encourage those who've not booked yet to make up their minds quickly, and the claim of rare or first time guests could be read as don't expect any more main cast, but I really can't see numbers being that low.

I'm more concerned about their Doctor Who event, but if/when that's cancelled don't proclaim its a domino effect that will effect everything else.
