UK Games Expo August Cancelled.

UK Games Expo 2020 was originally planned for May 2020. In March we announced that due to the Corona Pandemic we were postponing until August 2020.

Since making that announcement we have been monitoring the situation with regard to the current Covid-19 virus pandemic. After long deliberation and with great reluctance, the directors of UK Games Expo have decided to cancel the 2020 UK Games Expo. This decision has been made after considering national advice and government directives with regard to the Covid-19 virus pandemic, the expected closure of large venues and the probable duration of the infection. We reached our conclusions following consultation with sponsors, show partners and our venues.

We consider that a cancellation at this stage maximises the chances to both protect the health and well-being of all our attendees but also the financial viability of our exhibitors and the UK Games Expo itself and gives the best opportunity for attendees to recover any secondary costs. This allows us the best opportunity to hold a successful show in 2021.

We understand that this decision will impact everyone in different ways and will have a financial impact on some. We can only apologise for this and assure you that we are working with all our providers and hotels to help with these costs.

ALL VISITORS AND EXHIBITORS ARE ENTITLED TO RECEIVE A FULL REFUND OF TICKETS AND STAND FEES.

YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO ROLL FORWARD YOUR ENTRY TICKET AND STAND FEES TO 2021. (FOR FURTHER DETAILS SEE BELOW).

Both of us and the rest of the team would personally like to thank those individuals who have offered advice and support in recent weeks and the wider community for your continuing support. We are all very disappointed and saddened that we cannot bring you UKGE this year.

We would again like to thank the organisers of Tabletop Scotland who selflessly made their dates available in August 2020 for UKGE. We hope that their revised plans for Tabletop Scotland later in 2020 as well as future events meet with success.

Please make sure you read the section of the cancellation documentation that is relevant to you as it will give you the best answer to your question. The sections are: General Questions, Visitor, Exhibitor, Volunteer, Tournament Organiser, Live Event Act or Workshop/Seminar Host.

Sincerely,

Richard and Tony

UKGE Directors. 27th April 2020.
