Virgin Media is to be the new headline sponsor for this year’s Eurogamer Expo.
This year’s event will be held from 27th-30th September 2012 at London’s Earls Court, with an estimated 50,000 gamers expected to attend the massive four-day showcase of the latest games.
As part of Virgin Media’s ‘Tickles’ customer reward programme, Virgin Media customers will receive unbeatable discounts on tickets, plus VIP early-access to the show and the chance to play some exclusive new games before anyone else.
Luke Southern, Head of Sponsorship and Partnerships at Virgin Media, said: “The Eurogamer Expo is a landmark, annual event for UK gamers, who want sneak previews of brand new games and be able to experience the best that technology can deliver. Virgin Media makes that happen, with superfast broadband as standard. As the UK’s fastest broadband provider we offer the best speeds for downloading games, which makes our partnership with Eurogamer Expo, a perfect one.”
Rupert Loman, Managing Director of Eurogamer, said: “We’re delighted to have Virgin Media on board for this year’s show. This partnership underlines how far the show has come and is ever more relevant with the industry moving increasingly towards digital, and Virgin Media’s superfast broadband has long been a favourite with bandwidth-hungry gamers.”
Tickets for the event go on sale on February 23.
