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.
More details will be released about the speakers and their topics soon, 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!

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