“Everything about games”
2nd to 3rd June 2007
The Clarendon Suites
2 Stirling Road, Edgbaston,
Birmingham B16 9SB

If you like boardgames and are in the UK (or abroad) we offer the chance to try out new boardgames, play in boardgame tournaments and enjoy other gaming experiences.

We aim to be the only UK Games Convention to present all aspects of the gaming hobby under one roof:
• Wargaming
• Card games
• Board games
• RPGs
• Collectible Minis and Cards
• Lan-gaming and online gaming
The goal is to raise the profile of gaming as a hobby that will appeal not just to a minority of gamers but to families and the general public.

The intention is to create a show along the lines of the US and German Games Cons where families and gamers can come and play new games brought by games producers and also enjoy many forms of entertainment:
• Tournaments in many game systems
• Latest releases and games
• A large trade fair
• Computer LAN games and the latest in on-line gaming
• Fun radio controlled games
• Participation and demonstration wargames
• Uk Games Expo 2007 will be open to the public and well advertised.

The Venue
The venue is a high quality Conference Centre on the corner of Stirling Road and Hagley Road in Birmingham. It offers over 2000sq m of space in a prestigious location. There is a large car park and the venue has many hotels nearby. It is also close to the restaurants and clubs of Broad Street for those who want evening entertainment. And it is next door to Tolkien's TWO TOWERS.
