Or UKGE 2019 in numbers
The UK Games Expo this year has grown; in terms of hall space, exhibitor numbers, demo-ers, attendance and in the pure keen and enthusiasm from everyone at the show.
Here's a little look at the 2019 UKGE in numbers:
Unique Visitors: 25,704
(i.e. all individuals at the show. Up approx. 18.5%)
Repeat Visitors: 45,097
(i.e. all people whether 1 day or 3 days. Up approx 15%)
The interesting thing about this is that in the 2 hours after we took these initial figures to announce them at the UKGE Awards, we had 400 more people come through the door!
A little scale:
3 days of gaming or 74 Hours of UK Games Expo from start to finish (and possibly a leeetle bit more if you’re setting up and taking down)
97 brand new game releases
27 games crowd funding
3.5 km of table cloths
