Huge Trade Hall

This year we are listing over 120 exhibitors in our trade Halls. There are other large trade shows in the UK, particularly in miniatures, but UKGE is by far the largest collection of board game, roleplaying game and miniatures games traders together in one place. What makes us unique is that most of the traders will be demoing the games on scores of tables. Try before you buy!
