The UK Games Expo sits at the top of the food chain for the tabletop industry in the UK and is a successful platform for procurement, market information and community engagement – all rolled into one.
The convention is based in Birmingham, UK and targets every possible product category in the value chain – board games, roleplaying games, card games, dice games and live action role-play. Every edition has something noteworthy in its program. In 2008, this was the long-awaited launch for Dungeons & Dragons 4th in the UK. In 2019, it was the Reading Zone with Coram Beanstalk and Warhammer Adventures.
- The UK Games Expo generates a great number of visitors compared to the overall number of exhibitors – over 45,000 to a little above 435 exhibitors. Those are favorable statistics for any publisher who wants strong sales;
- The UK Games Expo is the only event in its industry, which donates to charity regularly. Each edition has a ‘bring & buy’ feature, which raises money for local charities. In 2019, the money raised at £18,000;
- The UK Games Expo is more than just a vehicle for sales, though. It also puts in effort to appeal to everyone. There’s a Viking Village, free open spaces for gaming, tournaments and even cosplay.
