Splash Damage CEO Paul Wedgwood believes the Eurogamer Expo can help put the UK back on the consumer gaming event map.

"I've wished there would be a good game event for many years, since ECTS broke down," Wedgwood told Eurogamer, following this morning's Brink demonstration, which Tom digested.

"I think that this is turning into something pretty slick. They're not waiting for the industry to approve, they're just getting up and doing it.

"Consumer events have just transformed this whole thing. And I feel like we're competing now because we've got [the Eurogamer Expo London] and [the Eurogamer Expo Leeds] as well - it's really nice."

Day one of the Eurogamer Expo 2009 in Leeds is drawing to a close. Games, sessions and the GamesIndustry.biz Career Fair have been heavily populated all day long.

Please remember that there are no tickets being sold on the door. But for those of you that have a ticket, we'll see you tomorrow.
