MCV AWARDS ’09: Nintendo signs as Retail Sponsor

This year’s MCV Industry Excellence Awards are fast shaping up, with the deadline for nominations now passed, the Finalists lists being decided – and Nintendo signing up as exclusive Retail Category Partner.

The MCV Awards take place at The Brewery, London on April 23rd. Codemasters and Gem have previously announced their support of the event, signing up as Exclusive Pre-Drinks Partners.

And now Nintendo has pledged its commitment once again as Retail Category Partner.

"Nintendo is delighted to maintain its retail partnership with the MCV Awards," said Nintendo UK general manager David Yarnton. "It is a great event and offers us a unique way to support and recognise the frontline people who make such a huge contribution to our industry. Given the current climate, it is perhaps more relevant than ever to promote the great work that retailers across the UK do for not only Nintendo, but the entire industry."

The Finalists of the MCV Awards ’09 will be announced next week, so watch this space. For further information contact
