UK Games Expo Postponed to August

As it was mentioned in passing on another thread, Games Expo has now been postponed to August. Having learned this, I was relieved to remind myself that my hotel booking had free cancellation - but the hotel in question is booked up for that August weekend, so I had to find another room that's further away and more expensive. (And which doesn't have free cancellation, so there'd better not be any more changes...)

This suggests that there may be a bit of a scrabble for rooms.
