It looks like the UK Games Expo is going to be bigger than ever when it hits next year in 2017 running between the 2nd & 4th June.
After a successful trip to Essen Spiel they’re ready to announce the sponsors who are going to be behind the event.
As a major sponsor since 2012 Mayfair Games are set to continue their support next. They said…
“Mayfair Games is proud to continue our support of UKGE. Together, we are part of a great team, supporting a strong and growing U.K. gaming community through even more gaming opportunities for UKGE 2017!”
As one of the biggest miniatures game at the convention over the last few years, Hawk Wargames are also on board supporting the event.
“Hawk Wargames are proud to be a major sponsor of UK Games Expo 2017, one of the fastest growing and exciting Table-Top-Games shows in the world, and as a British Manufacturer we are fortunate and pleased to be a part of this great event.”
As creators of one of the biggest games in the industry and a name synonymous with board gaming as a whole these folks are also joining the party.
“Catan Studio develops and publishes Catan games, the world’s preeminent analog game brand. We look to nurture the Catan community as it grows. Attending UK Games Expo, home of the UK’s largest Catan championships, as major sponsors is part of this strategy.”
Owners of the Daventry gaming store, Nobby and Hammy said…
“UK Games Expo is incredibly important to the hobby gaming industry and the community, and we as gamers have enjoyed watching it grow from its humble beginnings in 2007 to the major and significant show it has developed into today.
Now as a store, and a sponsor, UKGE is a great fit for Battlefield Hobbies as we share the same philosophy of being gamers first and foremost, who embrace all genres. Having exhibited for the first time last year we had a lot of fun and learned some valuable lessons, and we look forward to heading back in 2017 firing on all cylinders!”
Everybody needs a good gaming table and Geeknson make some of the best out there. So, it’s great to have them helping out with UK Games Expo too!
“Geeknson are proud to be part of the biggest shows all around the world, UKGE is one of them”
As one of the eminent companies in wargaming and board games Osprey will also be supporting the event…
“As a British-based publisher of board games and wargames, including the new edition of Escape from Codlitz, Osprey Games is devoted to promoting gaming across the country. For that reason, we are excited to sponsor UK Games Expo to help ensure the continuation of this great event that has become the number one pilgrimage destination for UK gamers!”
It’s awesome seeing this event grow. As followers of it over the past few years it’s nice to see that not only has the venue grown but the number of attendees and the amount of things to do has ballooned too.
We can’t wait to be there in 2017 to cover the event!
