Absolute Bedlam As Thousands Of Ticket Holders Turned Away From GamerConDublin
People are livid
Extreme disappointment in Dublin today as thousands of GamerConDublin ticket holders are being turned away from the event due to apparent overselling.
It is believed that 20,000 tickets were sold to the two-day event, while the Convention Centre's maximum capacity is a mere 8,000.
The response from GamerCon and the Convention Centre:
the venue is currently full but our team is working with @GamerCon_Europe to move things on as quickly as possible.— The CCD (@TheCCD) March 18, 2017

Check out the insane queues within and outside of the Convention Centre where there is apparently a 'one in, one out' policy currently in place:
And how utterly pissed off people are:
#gamercondublin biggest shambles ever!! Drove from Belfast, vip tickets, queued for 90 mins, told the event is oversold & we should go home!— Susan (@susanforsythe) March 18, 2017
#gamerconDublin absolute greed. Over subscribed. Disgrace. Anyone with tickets for tomorrow - don't bother!!!— Emma Toner (@ECToner) March 18, 2017
A lot of angry mammy and daddies out there.
Some people have managed to get refunds already despite a "once purchased, tickets are non-refundable" policy....
Total effing nightmare.
