UK's Biggest Games Show EGX Returning To London In September
Things seem bleak right now, but there are signs that life will start to return to normal eventually. We just have to do our part, stay inside, and wait it out. The good news is that there are a few things to look forward to, such as the return of EGX in September. The UK's biggest gaming expo is set to take place at the ExCel London between 17th - 20th September.
To be clear, this is a tentative date right now and subject to change. After all, we still don't know exactly when this will be over, and the ExCel is being used as an emergency hospital right now... but let's stay optimistic. Event organisers Gamer Network and ReedPOP are of course working vigilantly to ensure that if everything goes ahead, it goes ahead safely.
"We are working closely with ExCeL to ensure the health and safety of our fans, visitors and partners at EGX, providing a safe and exciting place to meet, discover and celebrate great games," a press release alongside the announcement read.
"Like all of you, we are following the circumstances at the venue very closely. Our number one priority continues to be the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff and as such, we will remain guided by the expert advice of the public health authorities."

David Lilley, Head of Events at ReedPOP, added that the team is following government advice and will continue to monitor this rapidly changing global event.
"We are doing the best we can during this unprecedented time, he said. "Looking to the future with hope while we work now with diligence, constantly monitoring the situation and following guidance from the UK government. This is clearly a situation that will keep evolving and whilst we might not have all the answers right now, we will do all we can to keep everyone informed and updated when we do."
"In the meantime we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our exhibitors and partners who continue to be incredibly supportive of EGX during these challenging times."
There's no confirmed date for ticket sales for the event yet, as organisers don't feel now is the right time, but watch this space for any updates about EGX, tickets, and dates. Hopefully we can all head to the ExCel in September to play video games and have a well-earned good time.
