I remember reading about that, the UK seminar was an absolute disaster because everyone kept asking questions they wouldn't et answers too. In contrast the Australian Games Day crowd actually asked questions about creative process and Finecast and whatnot which netted some interesting answers. So I still think the seminars are a good thing when people bother to make an effort.
Having said that it wouldn't kill GW to give a sneak peak a month advance on GD UK, just once a year.
In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only British.

If you think back, or are able to browse through old WD's, you'll find that around this time last year the offer had come up in a couple of WD's in the usual promotional artical about GD, also mentioned were opportunities to attend BL and FW seminars. I've not seen anything in this year's WD's to suggest that these are being put on so I'd say that his intel is fairly accurate. Stand (and hope) to be corrected. And agree that they were the best thing about the whole event.
He also confirmed what others have said. GW recognise that the queues for the "Store" areas were horrendous have booked a bigger or additional hall, and have sacrificed the GD Model to partially compensate/pay for this. (Although he made a fair point that not everyone wants the Mini, I for one haven't touched last years Skaven Warlord.)
The only issue with a sneak peak every month is that over the course of a year that is a sneak peak at every month. Which then defies the point behind the keep it secret. also it would be unfair to only have the UK have this privilege.

I have never been to a GD, So I'm curious what's the main appeal with the event? Do they have sales/bargains?

I love this year's model and as soon as I saw it I was planning to go to my first GD, but hearing the news that you have to pay for a ticket AND a model (where's in previous years the model was included in the ticket price) has put me off it completely. I'll just get my friend to pick up a model for me.
Basically, GD is a large retail unit, and people pay, to turn up, and buy stuff. Really weird if you ask me. You can meet people from the studio, which I assume is the main appeal, but its not really that interesting IMO. Black library, forge world, and fantasy flight have previews of their upcoming stuff, and normally a few demos, which is good. Mainstream GW, dont offer anything like previews or sneak peeks.
I can't believe people pay for the privelidge of turning up. I came away from my first one, almost disgusted that its ran as a massive retail event, that I have to pay to attend.
Browncoat. And will be forever.
Not being funny, I bloody love Mantic Games
Makes my decision to go the the BL Weekener even more justified, shame that i can't get the model through normal channels though

Also, I have to question how useful the seminars would be. Most of the interesting stuff they won't tell us (i.e. what's upcoming) and most of our complaints they'd be obligated to lie about (i.e. pretending Failcast was anything other than a naked money grab).
