The GameHorizon Conference 2012 will take place in Newcastle on June 27 and 28.
Network Game Republic will partner with GameHorizon to support the event.
"I'm delighted to be a part of shaping the GameHorizon Conference, which remains a fantastic and unique event on the UK games industry calendar," said managing director Jamie Sefton.
Nina Cliff will this year take over the role of producer for the event, as previous conference director Carri Cunliffe takes a position on the advisory board.
"I'm very excited about returning to GameHorizon," said Cliff.
"It's amazing how the event has grown and the loyal community it has created over the years. We're working closely with the advisory board to ensure 2012 will continue the great work achieved to date."
The event will take place at the Sage Gateshead, and more information and tickets are available at the official site.
