Develop Brighton


Develop Expo


Running alongside the Develop:Brighton Conference on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 July is the Develop Expo. It's free for all visitors to attend and brings together some of Europe's most innovative companies from every sector of games development.

At the heart of the Expo is the Develop Bar & Networking Lounge sponsored by Unreal Engine so you don't have to go far to buy colleagues a drink, have an informal meeting or just mix with other visitors.

It also features the Indie Showcase sponsored by Unity which demos some of the best independently developed projects around.
