Program Info

Torch Talks is an industry-led effort bringing together people from different areas of expertise for candid, in-depth, authentic conversations, where we can ask questions and make better decisions to thrive as leading studios in Ontario.

Each event will feature an Expert Guest to share best practices followed by discussion that aims to inspire action and collaboration.

Join us to ask questions or provide answers, expanding our skills, tactics, and businesses, as we come together to usher Ontario onto the Global stage of Video Game and Interactive Digital Media.
