Our Bring and Buy is the largest hobby games Bring and Buy at any UK games convention and we believe in the world. Last year we turned over nearly £90,000 and donated £9,400 to charity largely from commission taken on sales. The Bring and Buy is located in NEC Hall 2.

The UK Games Expo Bring and Buy is entirely computerised.

How will it work?

Our bring and buy uses a computerised system. You must now enter your lots to be sold via a UKGE account - no account - no sale.
This will enable us to barcode every item and track what is sold to make the whole process quicker.

Booking IN


If you have added your lots before the show booking in should be very quick, we have special label printers that will print 50+ labels a minute. So it should take as long as it takes to stick the labels on the goods. TAKE NOTE : BOOK IN BEFORE THE SHOW.

There will be computers available for booking in if you haven't done it before the show but if you end up waiting then it's your own fault. You can book your stuff in via any web enabled device as it is simply done via the UKGE website.



The shop layout should ensure more people can see more stuff at any one time and the space should be better used. As the goods are in categories it should make it easier for you to find stuff you re interested in rather than having to sift through boxes that have no interest for you. It will be possible to look at the BnB goods via our website. ALL TRANSACTIONS AT THE BRING AND BUY ARE IN CASH ONLY. NO CREDIT CARDS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
