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!

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 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’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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 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.
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.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
