I expect most conventions to fall by the wayside this year - it’s probable there will still be social distancing in effect for the remainder of 2020 and events like UKGE, comiccons, Tabletop Scotland etc don’t really lend themselves well to that

There is a virtual expo happening this weekend. If you're someone who goes for the demos and such, there are a lotttt of events planned. For people who just wander around buying stuff and then sit and eat some food and then wander around and buy some more stuff, ie. me, I'm not sure if there's anything. 

 

It starts tomorrow at 6pm, anyway.

EDIT: I'll add a few things that look interesting:

I also appreciate the fact that there is still an event called Pandemic Demonstrations.

I've got a stand. I'm not sure what will be worse- loads of interest and technical problems, or no interest. I'm expecting both. Still, if you're not doing anything and fancy looking at a virtual implementation of Die of the Dead with wonky physics that stop it from working here's the link! https://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/events/?query=die+of+the+dead&time=0&time=1440&category=14&tickets_remaining=0

Also I'm giving away stuff on my stand so swing by.

I will definitely try and remember to swing by tomorrow! :)

I tried for an hour or so as a punter, and I think that statement applies to us as a group too. There's so much content across the site it's difficult to know where to start. Instead I just got sad I wasn't wandering around a hall and the creeping realisation I'm missing my friends more than I realized sunk in.

Yeah, it was simultaneously really impressive and a bit of a mess. I did want it to go well, both for the fact that they are probably in need of some income and the fact it’d be a fun second event for the year in the future. 
 

But I think maybe it was a bit too defensive, OMG we must do everything, when it would have benefited from either being more spread out or more focused.
