This October will be my first visit to Essen, along with a large group from London on Board. I'm more interested in picking up a few cheap older games than in the new hotness, but these are a few titles that have caught my interest so far.

I mocked up a copy of this and adore it - the only co-operative game I've enjoyed. Will certainly purchase the new Abacus edition.

Must-buy expansion to an all-time favourite. The three expansions in the first arc have made it a little unwieldy and so I prefer to play online - hopefully this reverses that.

Knizia's my favourite designer and from a rules read this doesn't seem to be completely lacking in substance. Sounds like a thinly-themed light stock game along the lines of Paris Connection.

Have read the rules and it sounds interesting, but I will probably only buy one political negotiation game that comes with a wooden gavel, and I like the sound of Article 27 more.
