The Collarbone pic a few pages back seems like the best idea.
For the meet and greet, I'd probably say have the fans in front and have Steps stand on a box or something behind them? That would mean they're all in the same photo 'together'? Not much of a better solution but makes the best of a bad situation.
But the whole Attitude behind the scenes smooching and socializing is a BIG slap in the face for those fans who have paid a LOT for such a brief moment to be a little bit close to them.
I know that it can't be helped yet if that behaviour at the Attitude awards was acceptable then a proper meet and greet should be too.
It's official crap and Event Travel really should be looking into giving guests part refunds...as it's not the experience we've paid for.
I know tickets went on sale during a pandemic, however we all (a lot of us) though that by now it would mostly be over. So it's not dumb to expect a proper meet and greet experience.
A little bit disappointed to be honest.
I’m not surprised that it’s basically the JLS set up. I totally get this is making the best of a bad situation, but being all over other celebrities at Attitude isn’t a great look a few days before they announce this. This is even worse than JLS because they’re making you wear a mask on top of all this.
It’s great that they’re putting a meet and greet on for those who want it, and if people are happy to follow the guidance then great. But people should absolutely be offered a refund if they’re not down for this. I’m so glad I cancelled but I really hope those who do go have an amazing time regardless.
How did you manage to cancel? My friend tried and EventTravel were to be frank.. vile. They just threatened with extra fees and non return of deposit…
I played email ping-pong with them and they refused to cancel my package unless I forfeited my deposit. Thankfully mine was later on so just the deposit amount. I argued it’s a material change against their terms and conditions, and I only accept a cancellation if they give me my full money back and if they don’t give me it, I’ll file a chargeback. They cancelled it regardless and took my deposit without my permission so I’ve filed a chargeback for the remainder. It’s been approved pending Event Travel rebutting it but I’m pretty confident I’ll succeed. If I don’t, I’d rather lose the deposit and get some of my money back at this stage.
