Insight: Give your studio an edge
Practical "how to" sessions to help you develop better games
Develop:Brighton has been bringing together the European Game Dev community from global superstars to micro indies - since 2006. Come and learn from your peers and share your experiences, hear from the industry’s leading lights, get up-to-date with the latest tools, techniques and industry trends, plus network with 3,000 game dev professionals.
Due to the COVID pandemic, 2020 was a very strange and difficult year for everyone so sadly we couldn't bring our community together face to face. However, we were able to run Develop:Brighton Digital instead which was a great success.
This year we have moved the dates from summer to autumn just to be safe, so we are confident that we'll all be able to meet again in Brighton.
We look forward to seeing you in person 26 - 28 October 2021, Hilton Brighton Metropole, Brighton BN1 2FU

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
