Upcoming Industry Events

  • Riot Games STL Open House

    Date: April 18, 2014
    Time: 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    Location: Riot Games, 10th Floor 7777 Bonhomme, Clayton, MO
    Description: Riot STL is proud to announce our open house event for April 18th! We'd like to invite game developers and technologists from all disciplines to come learn about the history of Riot STL, some things we’ve done so far, our plans for this year (and beyond), and what it means to be a "Rioter." Join us for tours of the office, food and beverages (yes even the adult kind), presentations from some Riot leaders, and hang out afterwards to network or squeeze in a game of LoL. We're super excited about the changes that are happening here at Riot STL and want to share them with the local tech community and how we can work together to level up the STL gaming scene!

    A loose schedule (subject to change):

    5:30PM - 6:15PM: Reception with beverages & food, Office Tours, Mingling

    6:20pm - 7:00pm: Riot STL Presentation + Q&A

    7:00pm - 8:00pm: Networking, Games of LoL in PC Bang

    We're aiming to make this a great networking event for game development professionals and technologists so please spread the word and invite friends that might be interested. Please RSVP with guests so we have a good idea of who all is coming - our new office is cool but it's not a Tardis and our space is limited.
