Meetup with Valve

Valve needs no introduction.  As the creator of Steam, the pioneering game platform, they distribute and manage thousands of games directly to a community of more than 65 million players around the world.


We are delighted to present this incredible opportunity to talk directly with Steam, ask your important questions, and go into detail on whatever topic the discussion group is interested in. There’s no set agenda – find about upcoming Steam features, give your feedback, and see what opportunities come up.

Spaces for the Valve Roundtable discussions are strictly limited, so be sure to register your interest now!


The two meetup sessions take place in the Voice & Music Academy

Saturday 2oth January

10:00 – 11:00 Valve Meetup I (pre-registration required)

11:00 – 12:00 Valve Meetup II (pre-registration required)
