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.
So get the dates in your diary for what will be a lively three days discussing, sharing and celebrating our brilliant creative industry.
Please note: Develop:Brighton Digital is a B2B event for the game development industry it is not open to consumers.
We look forward to being back in Brighton next year 13 - 15 July 2021, but in the meantime stay safe!

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.

If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
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.
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!
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
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.

I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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.
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: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.
