The gaming convention UK Games Expo came again to Birmingham this year, running over the the weekend of the 25th to 27th of May. Hosted at the Clarendon the event covers miniature games, card games, board games and RPGs with news, a large trade fair, tournaments and championships. In addition it’s a chance to meet authors and artists.
Next year the UK Games Expo will be moving to the Hilton Bimingham Metropole. That’s a venue this blogger knows well thanks to the Gadget Show Live and I suggest you book your hotel rooms early.
Every year the UK Games Expo issues awards for leaders in a range of categories. You can dig these up from the expo’s Facebook page or check them out below.
