Insight: Give your studio an edge
Practical "how to" sessions to help you develop better games
Develop:Brighton has been bringing together the European Game Dev community from global superstars to micro indies - since 2006. Come and learn from your peers and share your experiences, hear from the industry’s leading lights, get up-to-date with the latest tools, techniques and industry trends, plus network with 3,000 game dev professionals.
Due to the COVID pandemic, 2020 was a very strange and difficult year for everyone so sadly we couldn't bring our community together face to face. However, we were able to run Develop:Brighton Digital instead which was a great success.
This year we have moved the dates from summer to autumn just to be safe and we are confident that we'll all be able to meet again in Brighton. We know many people will be excited for the return to a physical format and we’re looking forward to offering our community all it has come to know and love from the event. However, we recognise that some may not be quite ready to attend an event in October and therefore we’ve taken the decision for the first time to livestream all Develop:Brighton 2021 sessions as part of a digital conference pass - more info coming soon.
We look forward to seeing you from 26 - 28 October 2021, Hilton Brighton Metropole, Brighton BN1 2FU
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
