The UK Games Expo 2016 took place this past weekend and the organizers have published a Post Convention Press Release.
The convention, in it’s 10th year now broke all previous attendance records reaching 25,149 total attendance over the 3 day event with 12,636 being unique attendees. As expected, Saturday was by far the busiest day of the expo.
There were also awards for best game in various categories voted on by visitors – Winners included Isle of Skye, Star Wars Rebellion, TIME Stories, IceCool & Onitama.
The next show is scheduled for the 2nd to 4th June 2017 and will remain based at the Birmingham NEC & Hilton Metropole again – although word has it that it may be spreading out and getting even more space next year to cope with the increasing crowds!
On a personal note, we attended for our first time and had an amazing time and got to meet Tom Vasel and Sam Healey who are two of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting! (They both were happy to pose for a photo with the kids). We’ve already booked for next year! 🙂
