The countdown to next year's MCV Awards has begun – with date, venue and categories announced.
Over 600 retailers and execs from all sectors of the business will attend what is the single biggest and most prestigious event on the UK games industry calendar.

The event will take place on Thursday April 22nd at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London.
Several new categories will include Supermarket of the Year, Peripherals & Accessories Brand of the Year and Best Game Creative (single advertising execution).
A full list of the 17 awards up for grabs and an explanation of how the lobbying procedure and voting works appears on Page 3 of this week's MCV.
Much of what the industry loves about the MCV Awards has been retained. The venue and April timing is very popular and our judging process is once again totally transparent,” said Intent Media boss Stuart Dinsey.
But we have a few surprises in store too, and the new categories have been driven by demand from MCV readers. It will be another sell-out and probably our biggest night yet.”
The MCV Awards 2010 will be managed by Kathryn Humphrey, who has joined Intent Media.
Tables will be sold on a Gold, Silver and Bronze
basis. Contact Kathryn.Humphrey@intentmedia.co.uk for
