What is UK Games Expo?

The UK Games Expo Trade Hall

UK Games Expo (UKGE) is the largest Tabletop Games Convention in the UK - where all aspects of the tabletop gaming hobby are represented under one roof. The next UK Games Expo will be from Friday 30th May to Sunday 1st June 2025 at the NEC, Birmingham and Hilton Metropole Hotel.

What are Tabletop Games?

Tabletop games are games you usually play sat around a table. This includes boardgames, roleplaying games, card games, party games and any game that is not played on a computer or console.

It is all about having fun with friends and family together in a group, making new friends and discovering the thousands of Tabletop games that exist.

Ticket to Ride

If we came to the show can we play games?

Yes! At UK Games Expo there are two huge halls full of exhibitors who want to show you their games. You can see them, you can try them out, and if you like them you can buy them.

We also have a huge library of games to borrow and play on hundreds of tables of open gaming - open for anyone to play anything in.


What else can we do?

You can meet costumed groups dressed as your favourite characters from TV and movies. Have your photo taken with a Stormtrooper or outside the Tardis.

You can explore the Living History village, listen to tales from long ago and maybe even fight a Viking.

You can see a live entertainment show and maybe even come up on stage and take part in interactive shows.

You can even enter a tournament, play Dungeons and Dragons, learn how to paint a miniature and find out how to make your own games.


So this is a good day out for the family?
