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!

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!
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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
