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

Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
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.
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.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
Ian Livingstone, CBE
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 something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.
