At the centre of the partnership will be the ‘GameSpot UK @ MCM Expo’ stage, where visitors to the show will be able to enjoy the latest trailers, panel discussions, and presentations from special guests. The stage will be hosted by the GameSpot UK editorial team, led by Guy Cocker and Jane Douglas.
GameSpot UK will also have a booth on the show floor, hosting exclusive early looks at some of 2011’s biggest games.
Now in its tenth year, the London MCM Expo attracts major game developers from EA Games to Ubisoft and Capcom to Nintendo, giving the event’s 50,000+ visitors the chance to get hands-on with the hottest new titles and upcoming releases.
“GameSpot UK is a perfect fit for London’s Comic Con and we’re absolutely thrilled to have them on board,” said MCM Expo co-organiser Bryan Cooney. “We aim to give our visitors the very best in pop culture, whether it’s games, movies, comics, cosplay or anime, and the ‘GameSpot UK @ MCM Expo’ stage is a great way to raise gaming’s profile at the show and put it at the heart of the Expo experience.”
GameSpot UK Publishing Director, Ben Howard commented, “We’re delighted to be partnering with MCM Expo, an event which has become a mainstay in the pop-culture calendar, with some of the biggest names in games, movies, TV and comics making an appearance.
“We believe GameSpot UK’s partnership with MCM will continue to grow video gaming’s presence at the show and give the show’s visitors a fantastic early look at the games they should be playing over the next year.”
London MCM Expo takes place at ExCel London on 27-29 May and 28-30 October.
