    Games Workshop!

    Games Workshop at the UK Games Expo 2018

    From what appeared to be a last minute decision to attend last year to sponsoring the whole thing is quite a step. I expected them to be in attendance but certainly wasn’t expecting this. I’m assuming that sponsoring the event is likely to land them some prime “real estate” for their stall but, even so it’s great to see GW supporting the event so strongly and openly.

    Well fan me down with a tank track!

    Should have taken a left at Alberqurquie.

    That is a surprise. A pleasant one.

  • Avatar Image onlyonepinman5216p said 3 weeks, 6 days ago:

    To clarify they’re a Major Sponsor as opposed to an associate sponsor. I don’t know what the differences are although I suspect that it’s not technically in association with Games Workshop

    I wonder if they will have more of a presence at Salute and other shows next year?

    the only difference i could see for major sponsors vs associates at this years expo was position and size of stands, i.e. Hawk was a major sponsor for 2017 and there stand was pretty much the first one you came to as you entered the main hall, and was the same size if not bigger than GW’s, and they had a fair chunk of content in the program and larger logos, i dare say that there is more of a distinction behind the scenes but thats what it looked like from the attendees point of view…

    There is no ignominy, there is glory,
    There is no servitude, there is dominance,
    There is no defeat, there is victory… victory eternal!

    There’s no mystery to the difference between them. It’s on page 10 -

    I thought GW were late arrivals last year though which might have reflected their location and available space. I expect they will have a large stand this year though

  • Avatar Image onlyonepinman5216p said 3 weeks, 6 days ago:

    @redben so it appears that Major Sponsor is pretty the top tier of sponsorship so maybe I was right, maybe it isn’t inaccurate to say “In association with”. Although to be fair I think it’s in association with anyone who sponsors the event. I was just trying to generate a bit of click bait with the thread title. It’s just how I roll

    Their stand this year was pretty big but pretty empty everytime I walked past on the friday
