M Festival 2009 launched

Multiplay has announced the return of consumer specialist games event, M Festival.

M Festival Spring will take place at Stoneleigh Park from 10th to 13th April 2009.

The festival will return to Stoneleigh Park after last year’s successful August event.

Visitors to M Festival will be able to interact with everything in the huge 3000-square metre exhibition hall and have the chance to win prizes throughout the weekend.

The main draws will include EA’s 10,000 FIFA 09 tournament and ‘the largest LAN party in the UK’, with over 2,000 players bring their computers for the weekend.

Charlie Mora from Packard Bell said There’s so much to do and so much to see, it was great for us last year as lots of families attended. It’s just brilliant.”

M Festival was such a big success for us last year we never doubted it would return” said Craig Fletcher, Managing Director of Multiplay. An event like M Festival can really help stimulate the industry and consumers at a time which might otherwise appear bleak. We’re not happy with just running another event; we’re raising the bar once again and making M Festival Spring a turning point for UK gaming.”

The Samsung World Cyber Games 2009 campaign kicks off at the event with the plans for this years team selection being revealed and the chance to watch exhibition matches between players from the medal winning 2008 WCG UK team.
