Insight: Give your studio an edge
Practical "how to" sessions to help you develop better games
Since the recent government announcement regarding large-scale events, we’ve been in discussions with the Brighton Hilton about what would be possible in November.
Regrettably, we’ve come to the decision that due to the scale of Develop:Brighton it would be impossible to safely hold a physical event that would incorporate the conference, expo, Develop:Star Awards and the numerous networking and social events which take place during the week.
It’s been a really tough decision to take, but the safety of our 3000 attendees remains our priority.
So this year, between 2-4 November, Develop:Brighton Digital will take place featuring a host of outstanding speakers from the development world, and on Wednesday 4 November we will once again salute the brightest and best during the Develop:Star Awards which will also be digital.
In September more details will be released about the speakers and their topics, but for now please get the dates in your diary for what will be a lively three days discussing, sharing and celebrating our brilliant creative industry.
We look forward to being back in Brighton next year 13 - 15 July 2021, but in the meantime stay safe and more info coming soon!

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.

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 very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
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.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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 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 are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
