The worldwide gaming community is getting ready for the UK Games Expo, Britain’s largest collection of traditional and table gaming. Nearly 10,000 gamers will be making their way to the UK's annual festival of tabletop gaming over the three days of 3rd to 5th June.

Now in its tenth year, the event is so large that it has to be hosted in both Birmingham NEC and the nearby Birmingham Hilton. Around 200 exhibitors are set to attend from both the UK and around the world. British tabletop gaming has always been strong, and at UK Games Expo you can see exactly how wide and varied it has become. A full list of exhibitors can be found here.

There’s even a chance for the UK to step on to the world gaming stage at UK Games Expo. Multiple national level tournaments will also be available, many leading to international finals. Catan players can win flights and accommodation in the USA to play in Catan World Final, whilst skilled Agricola fans could win flights and accommodation to Vienna for Agricola World Final. Even Carcassonne experts are catered for thanks to a prize of £200 to go towards your costs of representing the UK at Essen Spiel, Germany. Other official Nationals include Splendor, 7 Wonders and Ticket to Ride as well as the British Speed Codinca Championship.
