Develop Brighton



About the Conference

About the Conference

The Develop:Brighton Conference is the must-attend event in the European games development calendar. Learn from your peers and share your experiences, hear from renowned gurus and the sharpest indie newcomers, and get up-to-date with the tools and techniques that will give your studio an edge.

It's all about you - the devs

As always our programme has been guided by some of the industry's leading figures as well as previous attendees, and our content aims to appeal to every level of the game dev community, from one-man studios to giant developers and publishers, business managers to graphic artists. 

With the focus firmly on practical takeaway insights that you can use once back at your desk, our three-day event unfolds across these tracks - Design, Art, Coding, Business, Audio and new for this year Indie, targeted at smaller independent developers. Then there's also the legendary Evolve conference devoted to all things new in game development.
