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 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.
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.
People should come to Develop because it’s where the UK games industry meets.
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!
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

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 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.
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 really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
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!
