UK Games Expo is a games exhibition and fair modeled on the Essen Spiel fair, Origins and Gencon. Games companies come and exhibit games which visitors can try out. A strong thrust is attracting new gamers and families but it aims to be a show case of what is best and new in gaming and so to appeal to gaming enthusiasts. The event includes board games, card games, miniatures games and roleplaying games alongwith some computer gaming. The first UK Games Expo was in June 2007.

- Début Boardgame - Boardgame - Family - Children's - Role-playing - Miniatures - Abstract/Puzzle - Card - Special Award
