What a Weekend: UKGE 2024

What a Weekend: UKGE 2024

Last weekend marked our return to the UK Games Expo, building on the success of our previous year. With a larger space booked, we aimed to display a wide variety of our products for attendees to see.

Leaving Scotland early Thursday morning, I headed to the NEC with the goal of maximizing setup time. Working solo meant that by 9pm, the stall wasn’t quite ready. I took some photos to plan for the next day, then headed to the hotel to rest and strategize for the morning.

By 7am the next day, I was back at the show, and by the opening at 9am, the stall was fully set up, taking a total of 10 hours. It was a new layout I hadn’t tried before, and I was pleased with the final presentation.

The expo is always a highlight for me, more so than Comic Cons, because of the shared passion for TTRPG's and board games. I enjoyed discussing our products with many people, gathering valuable feedback to improve our offerings. It was also great to see excitement around our new paint organization products.

On Sunday morning, I had some time to explore, make connections, and pick up a few items, including new paint shades and a book for Lucifer. I also discussed the possibility of stocking SHIVER with Parable Games (Coming very soon!).

The event wrapped up at 4pm on Sunday, and despite the exhaustion, I managed to pack up and leave by just after 7pm, ready for the drive back to Scotland.

A massive thanks to the team at UKGE and each and everyone who popped by to say hi! Your enthusiasm and support are what make these events so special. It’s the community that brings life to the games we love, and your feedback and conversations are invaluable. Here’s to many more successful expos and the continued growth of our gaming family!
