Virgin Media and Gamer Network have revealed both companies have renewed their partnership for a further two years following the success of Eurogamer Expo 2012.

The new deal sees the partnership extended to cover the Eurogamer Expo, Rezzed: The PC and Indie Games Show and GameHorizon.

Virgin Media is now set to be at the heart of this year’s Eurogamer Expo show floor, offering continued support for the UK games industry as well as a major attraction for visitors and demonstrating the speed and quality of its broadband service.

As part of the deal Virgin Media customers will be able to access half price tickets with early access to the show floor.

CEO and founder of Gamer Network, Rupert Loman, commented: “We are thrilled to renew our partnership with Virgin Media, who exceeded our expectations for a headline sponsor last year. They worked hard not only to make the show a success, but also to introduce grassroots initiatives that went beyond the show, benefitting the whole industry and gamers alike.”

Head of sponsorship and partnerships at Virgin Media, Luke Southern, added: “As a champion of undiscovered talent, we’re excited to be involved in the UK’s biggest gaming show again, especially in such an important year for gaming.”
