UK Games Expo has now been postponed until August 21st - 23rd 2020. Hopefully, this means that we're going to see the event continue after the peak of Covid-19 and get a chance to sit down and do some tabletop gaming!

UKGE August 2020

Here is some of the statement from the team at UK Games Expo...

"In view of the current Covid-19 virus pandemic, the directors of UK Games Expo have decided to postpone the 2020 UK Games Expo until Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd August.

However, because of other shows, the halls will not be 1,2 and 3 but will be halls 9, 10, 11 and 12. You may insert whatever expletive feels appropriate at this point ________. We did!

This decision has been made after considering national advice and government directives with regard to the Covid-19 virus pandemic, the expected closure of large venues and the probable duration of the infection. This decision has been made following consultation with sponsors, show partners and our venues.

We consider that a postponement at this stage maximises the chances to both protect the health and well-being of all our attendees and hold a successful show in 2020 so that participant exhibitors sustain the least disruption and financial difficulty.

We understand that this decision will impact everyone in different ways and will have a financial impact on some. We can only apologise for this and assure you that we are working with all our providers and hotels to help with these costs."

...and you can read the rest of the statement in full HERE. The team has already said that anyone who can't make it to the new date will get a full refund and help with any questions that you might have. Also...

"We have created postponement documentation to help with any questions. Please make sure you read the section of the postponement documentation that is relevant to you as it will give you the best answer. The sections are: General Questions, Visitor, Exhibitor, Volunteer, Tournament Organiser, Live Event Act or Workshop/Seminar Host."

So, there is help for everyone here and we hope that we're still going to see some of you in August when the UK Games Expo returns!

Are you going to be attending?
