Insight: Come and "skill-up"
Practical "how-to" sessions to help you make better games
Develop:Brighton is the only event in the UK that brings the entire game-making industry together - from global superstars to micro indies, to learn from each other, share ideas and experiences, network and do business in a friendly and inclusive environment. And we've been doing it since 2006.
We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved with Develop:Brighton this year and made it such a success - including our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers and last but not least all our attendees. This year's event was the biggest ever with 3,473 game makers in attendance across the three days!
We look forward to seeing you again next year - 11 to 13 July 2023, Hilton Brighton Metropole, Brighton BN1 2FU
Whether it's formal meetings or a drink in the bar come and connect with other game makers

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
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.
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 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.

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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
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!
