Beasts of War on board for 2017!
Online giant now UKGE Media Partner
Today UKGE can share some massive news which will have a huge effect on the 2017 show. Beasts of War: the ultimate resource for any war gamer which, with its daily dose of gaming news has grown a worldwide audience of hundreds of thousands, has come on board as UKGE Media Partner.
What this means is that UKGE’s profile and that of the UK’s hobby games industry will be enhanced by video and article coverage of major milestones and announcements in the run up to the show as well as blogging coverage at the show itself expanding the audience of those who might hear about and consider attending dramatically. Further to this we are looking to work with Beasts of War and our exhibitors to publicise their news through to this wider population via marketing and advertising opportunities.
Whilst the above might be good news for the exhibitors, the gamer – particularly the figure gamer – can look forward to a larger trade hall that we believe partnering with one of the world’s largest Wargaming Media body will help us build. In addition Beasts of War will provide us with the opportunity to record a unique panel show at Expo itself of particular interest to the figure gamer and those who enjoy board games with miniatures.
Tony Hyams, UKGE director said “In the history of the Expo there have been some moments which helped the show take a cosmic leap forward, that has moved us to the next stage. This exciting news is just such a moment. Wargaming and gaming with miniatures is the fourth arm of gaming alongside Roleplaying Games, Boardgames and Collectible Card Games. It has perhaps been the junior partner at the expo. No longer however. With this step we declare that UKGE is truly “EVERYTHING about games!”
Warren Johnston, of Beasts of War said “The UK convention scene for Tabletop Gamers, is exploding with growth and innovation these last couple of years. It’s an absolute pleasure for Beasts of War to be involved in the UK Games Expo and its fabulous three day gaming experience. We look forward to joining gamers and their families from all walks of life at the show, and bringing the overall experience to our gaming family around the world!”
