STEAM TO KEYNOTE THE LONDON GAMES CONFERENCE

The biggest digital distributor in games - Steam - will present the keynote address at the third London Games Conference, which takes place on 10 November at the Royal Society of Medicine in central London.  

Jason Holtman, director of business development for Steam at US super-developer Valve, will address the 300 plus audience about the digital market. He will be joined by Sega’s John Clark, head of digital distribution and UK MD, also taking the stage to talk about evolving download markets.

Meanwhile, analyst Nicholas Lovell and customer research outfit TNS will present special audience-voting sessions that look at, respectively, the companies winning in the digital revolution, and the changing expectations of consumers.

An expert in digital forensics, London School of Economics’ visiting professor Peter Sommer, will also host a session offering advice on the year’s hottest issue: security in the connected age.

These five join an impressive speaker line-up that already includes GameStop International EVP Mike Mauler, Eidos life president Ian Livingstone and famed games designer Peter Molyneux.

Organiser Intent Media is expecting over 300 delegates to attend  the London Games Conference, which will discuss the evolving online and physical games markets.

One more heavyweight speaker will be revealed soon, rounding out the event’s focused schedule of micro-keynotes. The conference is followed by networking and dinner.
